Watch Flyleaf's video for "Call You Out" here. It's the second single from their recently released new album New Horizons, their last with longtime singer Lacey Sturm. It was directed by Brad Scott, who had this to say about creating the video: "‘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."
Stone Sour and Papa Roach will co-headline a tour with support from Otherwise. Initial dates can be found here.
Every Time I Die, The Acacia Strain, Vanna, Hundredth and No Bragging Rights will tour together in 2013. Dates are here.
