Flyleaf Release Two New Memento Mori Webisodes

Flyleaf have just added Memento Mori webisodes parts 3 and 4 to their Kyte Channel. In the 3rd webisode the band talks about the artwork behind Memento Mori, which was  created by bassist Pat Seals, using a woodcut technique. In the clip, guitarist Sameer beams, “Pat is an amazing artist. We’ve kinda assigned him to doing all the artwork on the record, videos, and for photo shoots.” He later exclaims, “The whole texture of woodcutting and the way it looks, it has a really beautiful feel to it.”

In the 4th webisode the band talks about the photo shoots for Memento Mori, as well as the album packaging (the scenery for which was also created by bassist Pat Seals). Vocalist Lacey describes the meaning behind the scenery: “The scene comes out of a story about a King who won a battle and came home victorious, where a slave (me), traveled behind him saying, “Memento Mori” (remember mortality).” Later on in the clip Pat talks about brainstorming ideas for music videos. “Sameer has actually been taking the reigns on brainstorming ideas with different directors we have….it kind of freed up some of the weight off the location and the theme of the video. It allowed for some of the creative aspects to come through us.”

Memento Mori arrives in-stores everywhere on 11/10.
