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.”
