We Came As Romans Still Plan To Continue As A Quintet

During a recent interview with Kerrang!, Dave Stephens confirmed that We Came As Romans still plan to move forward following the death of Kyle Pavone. He went on to say that the band will not replace the singer and that they will continue performing as a quintet like they did on their recent tour with Bullet For My Valentine.

Stephens said the following about playing live shows without Pavone:

“We wrote those songs together and they’re still my songs as well, but it’s weird even for me singing his parts. 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.”

He also added the following about the group’s future plans:

“I think as of now, we need some time to navigate our grief. We got the tour done and a lot of those firsts that were going to be really difficult out of the way. I guess the next first would be writing music without him, and I’m not sure when that will happen. We definitely plan on continuing on. Kyle and all of us dedicated so much time to making this happen because we all wanted it so band, and I know he would be pretty livid if we threw in the towel.”

We Came As Romans Pay Tribute To Kyle Pavone At First Live Show Since His Death

Last night (September 18) at The Pageant in St. Louis, MO, We Came As Romans took the stage for the first time since the tragic death Kyle Pavone. Before performing “Lost In The Moment” at the show, the band took some time to pay tribute to the singer. You can see footage of that below:

Vocalist Dave Stephens told the crowd the following:

“A few weeks ago we lost our best friend our bandmate our brother our singer/keyboardist Kyle Pavone. And this is our first show that we’ve done without him. Thank you guys for being so accepting tonight.

This is something I wasn’t sure we’d ever get to do again. I think it’s what he would have wanted. I think it’s the best way to honor his legacy.

One of the things that I admired most about him was his ability to not regret his past, not worry about his future, and live in the present and enjoy that moment because he believed things could change so quickly and those great things could be taken from you in a heartbeat.”

We Came As Romans To Honor Kyle Pavone On Upcoming Tour With Bullet For My Valentine

We Came As Romans have confirmed that they will be moving ahead with their planned tour with Bullet For My Valentine and Bad Omens. The band will use the trek as a way to honor their late singer Kyle Pavone.

Dave Stephens said the following:

“The last few weeks Kyle‘s family, his fans, his friends, and the five of us have been expericing a very wide range of emotions, and for us it’s been the most difficult time of our lives. Through this we’ve been trying to be very honest with each other and open about how we’re feeling and grieving.

So, through all this we’ve decided that the best course of action for the band is to do the Bullet For My Valentine tour. We feel like this honors Kyle, and we can talk about his foundation, the Kyle Pavone Foundation, and carry on doing what he would have wanted us to do and us be together on stage, playing music together, with our fans.

We will not be replacing Kyle. We’ll be continuing on the five of us, and honoring his life for the next few weeks while we’re on tour.”
