Love And Death & Lacey Sturm Share Live Video For Their Cover Of DJ Snake & Justin Bieber’s “Let Me Love You”

Love And Death (Korn, etc.) and Lacey Sturm (ex-Flyleaf) have premiered a new live video for their cover of DJ Snake and Justin Bieber’s “Let Me Love You.” The clip is taken from Love And Death’s February 12 livestream concert. The track is from the group’s latest album “Perfectly Preserved.”

Brian “Head” Welch commented:

“The message of this song speaks so much to us & and Love And Death wants you to know that you can overcome the heaviest trials life throws at you. It was natural to have Lacey come in and lend us her voice because she’s been through so much and gets it more than most.”

In other news, Love And Death and Lacey Sturm will also be performing as part of HeartSupport’s upcoming #Chooselife virtual event. That event will stream live on September 10 via Twitch and it will also feature We Came As Romans, Jake Luhrs (August Burns Red), Matty Mullins (Memphis May Fire), Fit For A King, Silent Planet, and more.

Watch New Video For Love And Death & Lacey Sturm’s Cover Of DJ Snake & Justin Bieber’s “Let Me Love You”

Love And Death (Korn, etc.) and Lacey Sturm (ex-Flyleaf) have premiered a new video for their cover of DJ Snake and Justin Bieber’s “Let Me Love You.” That track appears on Love And Death’s latest album “Perfectly Preserved.”

Brian “Head” Welch told Loudwire the following:

“‘LMLY‘ has been one of my favorite tracks to cover. It’s so enjoyable to me making a pop song super heavy. Having three vocalists perform on the track was unique as well and I love the way mine, Lacey and JR [Bareis]’s voices blend together. When I asked Lacey to do the song with us I had no idea what the lyrics would mean to her at that particular time. After discovering what she was going through, my main hope with the song was that Lacey would find healing, and that healing might extend to anyone struggling in life who heard the track.”

“The ‘never give up’ message that directors Sebastien Paquet and Alison Roberto worked hard to convey in the music video profoundly mirrored some of the conversations Lacey and I were having behind the scenes, without either director having prior knowledge of the conversations, so we were very blown away by that and we’re so proud of what we achieved here with this song and video. Art is so much more powerful than we think.”

Sturm added:

“Working with Love And Death on ‘Let Me Love You‘ was sort of a supernatural experience. I was mourning the loss of a loved one when I recorded the song. Mourning is a multifaceted process and sort of comes in waves. They asked me to do the song at a very dark moment in that process. When I went to sing in the studio the lyrics were everything I wanted to sing and scream in response to this death; which felt like such a theft.”

Lacey Sturm Premieres “State Of Me” Video

Lacey Sturm (ex-Flyleaf) has premiered a new song titled “State Of Me.” The singer co-wrote the track with Skillet’s John and Korey Cooper and an official video for it can be found below:

Sturm commented

“Choosing life is violent in that we reject every subtle form of suicide, every eternal death choice that would try to disorient, distract and seduce us away. Eternal life starts in our soul. So look at the state of it. And if you see eternal death, be violent against it, cut off every temporary thing that would bring that into your heart and reach out and cling to eternal life, even if it costs you this temporary one.”

“During times of loss, it’s obvious that what we see is temporary. We have to accept that. But what lingers after loss is what we can’t see. That is eternal. What really matters is love, faith, the spirit. The soul. When I focus there, on the eternal things, I find a tremendous resolve to protect what matters most.”

Lacey Sturm (Ex-Flyleaf) On Possible Project With Benjamin Burnley (Breaking Benjamin): “If He Wants To Do That, I’ve Already Said Yes”

Benjamin Burnley (Breaking Benjamin) and Lacey Sturm (ex-Flyleaf) previously talked about starting a band together and now, during an interview with Pozzo Live, Sturm discussed the possibility of a new project once again. She said the following:

“If he wants to do that, I’ve already said yes to doing it, so I guess it depends on finding his availability too. I find that when I do interviews, a lot of times people will say he’s not sure if I wanna talk about it, but I feel the same way — I’m not sure if he wants to talk about it, ’cause I’m not sure where he’s at with it. But he’ll text me randomly and be, like, ‘We’re gonna make the best album.’ And I’m, like, ‘Okay. Whenever you want to.’ So I’m just kind of waiting on him to let me know. That’s kind of why we waited to put our album out, because we thought maybe we would be doing stuff with him… But it’s taken a while. [So] we’ll see what happens with him. Whenever he’s ready.”

We’ve always shared a unique emotional connection to our music with our fans, and this album attributes to those dark times and euphoric ones. From wherever you joined along the road to Aurora, this one is for you. Thank you.”

Sturm:

“I love the mystical kind of lyrics that a thousand different people can sing and each person feels like it was written just for them and what they are going through. This is the magic of Breaking Benjamin songs that I love. Ben asked me to sing on this acoustic version of ‘Dear Agony‘ at a time when singing the lyrics sliced through me in a deeply prophetic way. It was a revelatory and healing experience. I’m so thankful.”

Ward:

“I’m very honored and blessed to be a part of such a beautiful song and project. Ben’s writing has had a special place in our hearts for many years. Thankful to be a part of this.”

Gontier:

“Ben asked me to be a part of this record, and of course I said yes. We’ve been close friends for over 20 years, and Breaking Benjamin has been a big influence on me over the years. I’m REALLY stoked that Ben and I have finally found a way to get our voices on a track together. Also, ‘Dance With the Devil‘ is one of my favorite songs by anyone. Ever.”

Chamberlain:

“Touring with Breaking Benjamin was not only one of my favorite tours we’ve done in years but we also left the tour with life long friends. Being asked to sing on ‘Red Cold River‘ was very flattering and a complete honor. I love these guys as musicians and as people, I’m honored to be a small part of their journey.”

Barnes:

“I was honored to be a part of Breaking Benjamin’s new acoustic record along side so many other amazing singers – can’t wait to hear the whole thing!”
