FLYLEAF: 'Missing' Video Released

"Missing" the new video from FLYLEAF, can be viewed below. The song comes off the band's latest album, "Memento Mori", which sold 56,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 8 on The Billboard 200 chart.

Released on November 10, 2009 via A&M/Octone, the follow-up to FLYLEAF's hit 2005 self-titled debut sees the group once again teaming with producer Howard Benson, who is known for his work with PAPA ROACH, MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE and THE ALL-AMERICAN REJECTS.

The album's title comes from the well-known Latin phrase that, through the ages, has been uttered as a reminder of the mortality we all share. According to ancient texts, memento mori was historically acted out as a kind of ritual tableau in ancient Rome when a victorious general was welcomed back to the city with a parade: "Standing behind the victorious general was a servant, and he had the task of reminding the general that, though he was up on the peak today, tomorrow was another day. The servant did this by telling the general that he should remember that he was mortal, i.e. 'Memento mori."

"Again", the lead single from "Memento Mori", has climbed to #3 at Modern Rock radio, right behind MUSE, who occupy the #1 and #2 spots.

"Reaching #3 after 28 weeks, 'Again' has been FLYLEAF's biggest hit at Modern Rock radio to date," said Ben Berkman, EVP/Head of Promotion at A&M/Octone Records. "It has also been one of their most enduring as well, reaching this position after a steady eight month build. Furthermore, the track navigated one of the most competitive fourth quarters in the last 10 years, outlasting records from over a dozen established gold and platinum artists. 'Again' is a bona fide hit!"

The band, which just wrapped up a trek with THREE DAYS GRACE and BREAKING BENJAMIN, will launch a sold-out U.K. tour on March 22, which includes a show at London's Islington Academy on April 1. FLYLEAF will then return to the States for a series of festival appearances and a headlining tour that will kick off on May 4. FAIR TO MIDLAND and 10 YEARS will open on the tour. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday and Saturday, March 19 and 20; check your local box office for details.
