FLYLEAF‘s new EP, “Who We Are”, was released on July 9 via A&M/Octone Records. The extended-play recording features live songs from FLYLEAF‘s recent tour with new singer Kristen May and includes their new single, “Something Better”, with a guest appearance by P.O.D. lead singer Sonny Sandoval. The track was recorded with longtime producer Howard Benson during a break between a busy schedule of touring and writing new material.
A bonus live version of the song “Cage On The Ground”, which was also recorded during the above-mentioned tour but not included on the new EP, is now available for streaming using the SoundCloud widget below.
“The live tracks came from our 2013 winter tour with DROWNING POOL,” says FLYLEAF in a statement.
“‘Something Better’ is one of the first songs we wrote with Kristen May. It was an awesome experience writing together! Plus, having Sonny from P.O.D. on this track was really special. We’ve been fans of theirs for years, and it was an honor to do this collaboration.”

FLYLEAF has just completed a co-headlining nationwide tour with P.O.D..
