Lacey Launches Instagram Cover Art Reveal Contest
Three years after amicably parting ways with the Platinum-selling, Grammy-nominated Flyleaf, Lacey Sturm is independently releasing her highly anticipated solo debut, Life Screams, in early 2016 on FOLLOWSPOT Records with The Fuel Music distribution. The first single from this self-produced set of urgent, anthemic and lyrically-timely rock, “Impossible,” debuts exclusively on SiriusXM’sOctane (channel 37) Sunday, Nov. 1, at 1:00 pm EST, and goes immediately into rotation thereafter. On Nov. 6, the single will be available on iTunes, Spotify and Amazon, and goes to rock radio for adds Nov. 9.
“Impossible” screams the return of the voice and songwriter who delivered rock anthems like “Again,” “All Around Me,” “I’m So Sick” and “Fully Alive” to the top of the retail and radio charts. The debut solo single from Lacey blasts out the optimistic chorus: “Every morning I see another miracle / I can't believe I'm living the impossible / We are the sign and we are the wonder / Another day of living the impossible.”
“I was listening to the radio one day and I said to myself, ‘If I hear one more song telling people to kill themselves and go to hell, I’m going to have to put a record out!’” exclaims Lacey. “I just think it would be a good thing to have a voice in the mix of all the hopelessness that actually gives you a light at the end of the tunnel; a voice that’s still honest about the pain and struggle, but can also scream, ‘Hey, wake up and be alive because there’s hope!’”
Approaching her latest creative phase with newfound perspective and appreciation, Lacey adds, “I really started to value my relationships and the people around me. We started as a group of artists in our hometown of Pittsburgh and Life Screams was kind of an accident.”
Out of this new artist community, Lacey’s live band organically formed and features her husband, Josh Sturm (guitars), as well as Tom Gascon (drums) and Ben Hull (bass). Together, they have already performed for crowds in the tens of thousands and are booked for major rock festivals in 2016.
While music fans wait for the tour dates to be announced, Lacey engaged her extensive social community on an Instagram scavenger hunt yesterday for a cover art reveal contest. One piece of the puzzle was featured on Lacey’s Instagram while eight additional square pieces of the new cover were hidden across Instagram’s platform. The first one to find and stitch together the nine images, tagging the cover #LIFESCREAMS, will receive a signed copy of Lacey's audiobook, The Reason.
Lacey has earned legions of fans worldwide through her emotive voice, chart-topping songwriting and sheer sincerity of the uplifting messages pervading her work. Whether as frontwoman of the multi-million-selling hard rockers Flyleaf, or now as a solo artist (as well as an author and speaker), she remains uncommonly true to herself while inspiring others to strive for better ways to live and love.
From performing for the United States Armed Forces in Afghanistan to sold out gigs around the U.S. alongside rock music’s top bands, including Rage Against The Machine, Metallica, Deftones, Korn, and Evanescence, Lacey has also collaborated on recordings with Geno Lenardo, Apocalyptica, Orianthi, Resident Hero, Dave Navarro (Jane's Addiction), Ryan White (Resident Hero) and many others.
Gracing covers as a LOVEsick model for Hot Topic, Lacey has further received MTV “Favorite Music Video” and Yahoo! “Band of the Month” nods. She has also gathered numerous movie, television, soundtrack and video game placements with Flyleaf, such as Underworld: Awakening Soundtrack, Nightmare Before Christmas: Cover Album, Live Free or Die Hard, Rock Band and Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock, The Sims 2, Resident Evil: Extinction, Underworld: Evolution, MTV New Year's Eve, and many more.
