Back by popular demand, the five-piece Texas rock group Flyleaf will be hitting the stage of Germain Arena (11000 Everblades Parkway, Estero) yet again during a Friday, Feb. 26 concert, also featuring Three Days Grace and Breaking Benjamin.

The group, who was just in town during the 99X-Mas Ball, hosted by 99X 99.3-FM, is on tour continuing its support for their recently released sophomore album "Momento Mori," which debuted at No. 8 on the Billboard Top 200.

The video for the album's first single, "Again" has been in heavy rotation on MTV and Fuse, as well as local rock stations, including 99X.

The single has been climbing the Active and Modern Rock charts and has been in the Top 15 since its release several weeks ago.

The band celebrated the release of "Momento Mori" with a performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! in late October and headlined a U.S. tour of intimate venues across the country.

The new album boasts a compelling blend of bold guitars and soaring melodies, anchored by lead signer Lacey's honest, emotional lyrics and fervent vocals.

As USA Today says; "The release is full of potent imagery that transcends clichs."

The band has teamed up with Breaking Benjamin and Three Days Grace, who just finished up their in-progress Canadian tour, for a month-long U.S. excursion, which kicked off in mid-January. The 14-show run concentrates on middle America, but moves east, sure to include Estero, Fla., in its wake.

General admission tickets to the Flyleaf, Breaking Benjamin, Three Days Grace concert are and available through Ticketmaster (Ticketmaster.com) for $37.75.

Doors open at 6 p.m. Showtime is at 7 p.m. Parking is not included in the ticket fee. For more info, call Germain Arena box office at 948-7825 or visit MySpace.com/Flyleaf.
