“Call You Out”, the new video from FLYLEAF can be seen below. The animated clip follows an angry bear destined to destroy the smaller animals towns, only to find himself faced with the masses.
The “Call You Out” video was directed by Brad Scott, who had this to say about the band and creating the video: “Our team has been a fan of FLYLEAF since the very beginning, so working on a music video for the album ‘New Horizons’ was a great honor.
“FLYLEAF‘s new song ‘Call You Out’ is about the power of truth rising against evil. We aligned our characters with a cast of animals who were pitted against the ultimate antagonist in a forest. Through this, the video became the ultimate musical fable; light versus dark, and the triumph of good versus evil. Using live-action and animation we decided to limit our style to a monochromatic tone, with a dark and stormy vibe.
“I feel that FLYLEAF fans all around will love this video, and we’re really excited for the premiere.”
FLYLEAF‘s new lineup made its live debut on November 1 at the Grand Stafford Theater in Bryan, Texas in front of a sold-out capacity crowd of 400. The show featured the debut of new singer Kristen May, who replaced original vocalist Lacey Sturm after the latter abruptly departed the group in October.
Sturm left the band on the eve of the release of its third album, “New Horizons”, which came out on October 30 and sold 20,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 16 on The Billboard 200 chart.
Sturm issued a statement about her exit from the group she co-founded, saying, “I am very thankful to have recently become a mom to one of the greatest blessings of my life, my son Jack . . . I understand that, for me, living life to the fullest in this season means to step down as the lead singer for FLYLEAF.”
The new album follows up 2009’s “Memento Mori” and FLYLEAF‘s self-titled 2005 debut, which have combined to sell more than 1.6 million copies in the U.S.
