Flyleaf’s New Horizons at HOB

Flyleaf are a band on a mission. Since their 2002 debut EP Broken Wings, the band have been unashamedly straightforward about their members’ committed Christian beliefs. While stopping short of adopting the “Christian band” label (a label which, for better or worse, is considered by many in the music industry to be a commercial death sentence) all five members are quite vocal about their religion, a stance which has survived the ups and downs of a tumultuous career along with the departure of founding vocalist Lacey Sturm. And on Wednesday at the Cleveland House of Blues, Flyleaf played a rolicking set that declared one thing: mission accomplished.
