10/12 Detroit, MI – Loving Touch

We Came As Romans Premiere “Golden” Music Video

We Came As Romans have premiered a new video for their new song “Golden.” This track is from the band’s new album “Darkbloom,” which will be released on October 14. Guitarist Joshua Moore commented:

“‘Golden’ is a song that’s really close to our hearts. I wrote the verse lyrics about the day that Kyle passed, that morning when we got the call, and the emotion we felt. Kyle was such a bright light in our lives, and it felt like that light was gone without him. This song was about dealing with those feelings and trying to find a way through this new darkness we all felt completely lost in.”

Architects Cancel North American Tour

Architects have cancelled their North American tour with We Came As Romans and Like Moths To Flames. The trek was unable to move forward due to “logistical issues.”

Architects commented:

“It pains us to announce that despite the best efforts of everyone in our band, our crew and the rest of the team, a number of logistical issues have forced us to cancel our upcoming North America tour. We had been looking forward to playing so many new songs for you, but everything from transportation to visa approval timelines and other hurdles have made the trip impossible at this stage. We recognize the last few years have been a challenging time for everyone and we were really excited to perform for you and share moments together that only live music can facilitate. We will announce new plans to return as soon as we we can. The last thing we want to do is announce new dates that we will be unable to uphold.

Thank you for your understanding. We will be back.

In the meantime, refunds for tickets & VIP will be made automatically to the method of payment used to purchase.”

We Came As Romans Premiere New Song “Plagued”

We Came As Romans have premiered a new song titled “Plagued.” This track is from the band’s new album “Darkbloom,” which will be released on October 14.

Guitarist Josh Moore said the following about the song:

“We’ve been waiting forever to release this song, and we’re stoked to finally put it out! We finished writing ‘Plagued‘ in January 2020, so it’s great to finally share it with our fans. My friend who I do a ton of writing with, Nick Sampson, texted me a little video of this idea for a riff he was working on – and I loved it. So I drove over to his place and we finished the song together – and then our friend Ryan Leitru came in and we all sat down and wrote the vocals to it.

Over a year later, when we were in the studio recording the album with Drew Fulk – we smoothed out just a few parts and the song was done! And now here we are – over two years later, able to share Plagued with you!

Lyrically, ‘Plagued‘ was about a part in the grieving process we all went through – feeling like the anguish you’re dealing with, then anger you’re dealing with, is turning you into a different person. That you’re watching yourself change into someone you don’t want to be – being consumed and overwhelmed by your grief. It’s an incredibly difficult thing to live with, and I hope this song can help anyone who’s feeling the same way.”

He also added the following about the album:

“We are so excited to finally be able to announce the release of our next record ‘Darkbloom‘. This will be our first record in five years, and we want to thank you all for being patient with us as we were figuring out if we could, and how we could continue moving forward as a band.

We wrote this record about all the feelings we felt, and all the emotional places we lived in, navigating the loss of our brother Kyle. Every song is about a different part of our lives over the past few years, an insight to the struggles we had, and how we were able to make it to where we are now. We hope you all can take a deep dive into these songs and connect with us – and if you’re feeling any of the ways we did, we hope these songs can help you push forward.

This record is dedicated to Kyle – we’ll never forget you, and we will never stop saying your name.”

We Came As Romans Stream Reimagined Version Of “Darkbloom” Featuring Brand Of Sacrifice

We Came As Romans have joined forces with Brand Of Sacrifice for a reimagined version of “Darkbloom.” You can stream that track below:

We Came As Romans commented:

“We’ve been fans of Brand of Sacrifice for a minute – and when we had the idea to do a reimagined version of Darkbloom, they were the first people to come to mind. A lot of bands have done incredible re-releases or reimagined versions of songs, and those versions are usually stripped down and showcase a softer side. We wanted to do the exact opposite – to team up with some powerhouses in the deathcore scene, and release something heavy, fast paced and aggressive. It’s been a blast working with the BOS guys, we can’t wait to see what the future holds for them.”

Brand of Sacrifice added:

“When WCAR approached us to rewrite this track with them, we were excited to be able to work with a band that has done so much for metalcore as a whole. This reimagined version of Darkbloom is full of aggression and energy, and combines all of the elements that make both of our bands special with some unexpected surprises along the way. I’m super stoked that we have the opportunity to innovate and bridge the gap between two very different sub genres, and do something insane that really hasn’t been done all that often in metal.”
