Flyleaf Postpone Tour Dates

FLYLEAF has postponed five dates on its current headlining tour in order to allow singer Lacey Mosley to rest her vocal cords. She has issued the following statement on the matter:

"I'm so sorry, everyone. We have been working very hard to get to see all of you and play in all of your towns. We have gotten so many beautiful letters and gotten to talk to so many of you these past three years of touring and as far as I can remember we have only had to postpone one other show. I guess what we have learned is that we are not robots and we can't treat ourselves like it. My voice has been acting up this whole tour. When I went to the doctor she looked at my vocal chords and immediately started to reprimand me for the damage I had done. 'Didn't you know your voice was not well?' 'Yes, that's why I came here.' Appalled, she said, 'And still you continued to sing??' 'It's my job,' I said. And very matter of factly she stated, 'Not for long if you continue this way.' So I was ordered to be silent for five days. I'm sorry about all the shows being postponed, but we will come back and hopefully all of you will too. Thank you for your prayers, patience and understanding."

The affected dates are as follows:

April 11 - Columbus
April 13 - Detroit
April 14 - Cincinnati
April 15 - Chicago
April 17 - Madison

FLYLEAF will take part in this summer's Family Values Tour. Also scheduled to appear on the trek are EVANESCENCE, ATREYU, TRIVIUM and HELLYEAH, alongside headliners KORN.

The Texas-based band has been supporting its self-titled debut album, which has sold 571,000 copies in the United States since coming out in the fall of 2005, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

Hey your mom, it's okay, I got yer back. f*** this guy. MY ears hurt from listening to Flyleaf. I bet this FAG likes Flyleaf because not only was he deprived of good music growing up, but he was possibly deprived of attractive women. That's why he has to face fvck people that hate sh**ty bands rightfully to make himself feel better. I'll actually venture so far as to say that the only people that like Flyleaf are either:

1) Tin-eared,

2) Pretending to like Flyleaf because they know a hot chick that likes Flyleaf,

3)Teeny-bopper girls that don't know any better, and

4) Closet homosexuals.

^^This guy sounds like all four.

If she was truly dedicated to her "job" she would learn to use her voice properly and she wouldn't have this problem. But nevertheless, thousands of eadrums have been spared. So, perhaps this is good news?
