Kristen May announced through a Facebook video that she is stepping down from Flyleaf.

Kristen, who has been the band's lead singer for over 3 years now, shared a video via social media to update fans on where she is currently in her musical endeavors. "Now is the time that I, unfortunately, have to say goodbye to Flyleaf," she began before thanking all the fans that have supported her and Flyleaf over the years, especially the ones she didn't get to meet in touring.

Kristen gave a few reasons for leaving, beginning with her young son. "I want to be the best mom I can be, and I want to be here for my son for everything... so for me to be able to plant some roots for a little bit with my son and with my husband and with our dogs here at home is very important to me."
 


Secondly, Kristen says she never felt like the band was totally hers. "I never truly felt like I fit in, and so I just feel like life is too short to stay where you aren't fully growing," she explained. "Just to be completely honest with you, I need to grow and move elsewhere."

As for the music, Kristen says she's not necessarily done. "I know that I will make music again. I already am picking up the guitar again. But I don't think it will be with Flyleaf," she says of her future with music. "There's so many things I want to do right now, and committing myself to one band just isn't what's right for me."

Flyleaf has not yet made a statement regarding Kristen May's departure or the future of the band. Make sure to keep up with both Flyleaf and Kristen May on social media to see what comes next in their chapters.
