Launch Radio Networks is reporting that FUTURE LEADERS OF THE WORLD — the band featuring singer Phil Tayler and bassist Thad Ables, along with EVANESCENCE members John LeCompt (guitar) and Rocky Gray (drums) — have announced that the group will change its name and have asked fans to help them come up with a new one. According to a posting at the band's MySpace page, the band has almost completely revamped its lineup and wants to "represent ourselves as a new band with a fresh start."

FUTURE LEADERS OF THE WORLD are currently in the studio recording their second album, and have posted some new tracks to their MySpace page, which can be accessed at myspace.com/flow247.

The group released a CD of B-sides and rarities in February that was available only online.

The Buffalo, New York band's debut album, "LVL IV" (Level Four), came out in October of 2004 and featured the single "Let Me Out".
