We Came As Romans has released two brand new songs, ‘Carry The Weight’ and ‘From The First Note’. These are the first tracks that the band has released since singer Kyle Pavone‘s tragic passing in August 2018.

“When Kyle passed away, it changed everything for us personally and, as a byproduct, everything for the band,” says guitarist Joshua Moore. “An earth-shattering event puts a lot of things in perspective.

“We’ve spent so much time together. We’ve been doing this since we were kids. The one thing that won’t change is the way Kyle affected my life. Before we were bandmates, we were essentially brothers.

“In order to be genuine to our fans and ourselves, we had to write about what we dealt with losing him. At the same time, this isn’t just a bunch of songs soaking in depression. We want to celebrate what we built.”

“Carry The Weight’ is about dealing with the immense grief and sadness throughout navigating the loss of Kyle,” the band explains. “It’s a very honest song, and we’re very open about how it felt continuing to play shows without him on stage with us. It’s about the darkest part of our grieving process, and the only way we see ourselves moving forward — through the memory, the ‘light’ that Kyle shone on our band.” Continue reading »

We Came As Romans singer Dave Stephens has confirmed to U.K.’s Kerrang! magazine that the band will continue as a quintet following the tragic passing of co-vocalist Kyle Pavone.

“We wrote those songs together and they’re still my songs as well, but it’s weird even for me singing his parts,” Dave said. “I’m sure it’s kind of strange to the fans and the band, but I can’t imagine how much more strange it would be to have someone else singing them permanently. We don’t ever want to add another member again, and at this point, we’re closer than ever. We wanna do our best to honor [him] and make him proud, but never replace him. He definitely won’t be forgotten.”

We Came As Romans  recently completed a U.S. tour as the support act for Bullet For My Valentine and Stephens said that there are tentative plans for the band to work on new music. Continue reading »

According to Billboard, the surviving members of We Came As Roman will stage a memorial concert for their late singer Kyle Pavone on October 28 at the Fillmore in Detroit, Michigan.

The “Promise Me” tribute will raise money for the newly established Kyle Pavone Foundation and will feature “a whole bunch of guest vocalists, guest musicians, tons of DJs,” co-vocalist Dave Stephens said during We Came as Romans performance Sunday night at the same venue as the opening act for Bullet For My Valentine. “It’s just gonna be a big party celebrating all the awesome things Kyle did in his life.”

Pavone died of an accidental drug overdose in late August. His bandmates said in a statement last month that they would honor the singer by going ahead with their previously announced U.S. tour. Continue reading »

‘Lost In The Moment’, the new video from the Michigan post-hardcore outfit We Came As Romans, can be seen below. The song is taken from the band’s fifth album, “Cold Like War”, which will be released on October 20 through SharpTone Records.

According to a press release, the disc represents adversity — in all of its various forms. It is a thrilling, energetic and immensely catchy compendium of songs that run the full gambit of emotion — aggression to sorrow, love to hate — to capture the fullest extent of the conflict and turmoil We Came As Romans endured to make it to this point in their careers and their lives.

‘Cold Like War’ is about struggle, those trials,” says guitarist and songwriter Joshua Moore. “They can turn us towards each other, towards those we love, towards those who have supported us. Because the last two years to us have felt like this giant war — an internal war — to figure out the right path for our band… to figure out how to stay together and be happy again.” Continue reading »
