We Came As Romans Announce “To Plant A Seed” 10th Anniversary Tour

We Came As Romans will be celebrating the 10th anniversary of “To Plant A Seed” by performing it in full on a spring North American tour. The Devil Wears Prada, Gideon, and Dayseeker will serve as support.

We Came As Romans guitarist Joshua Moore commented:

“We’re really excited to announce the 10-year anniversary tour for our first record ‘To Plant A Seed‘. Being able to watch our fans connect with us through music over the last decade has been an amazing privilege, and it all started with ‘To Plant A Seed‘. Way back in 2009 when we recorded it, we had no idea where it would take us or what we were really even doing, and it’s awesome to see that we can play these songs still, and feel that connection with you.

But over the course of 10 years, we’ve released four other albums and we’re even working on a fifth! With that being said, we are going to be throwing these songs into the vault of old WCAR — and retiring them from all future setlists after this tour. So make sure you grab your tickets and come hear these songs one last time live.”

We Came As Romans Premiere New Songs “Carry The Weight” & “From The First Note”

We Came As Romans have premiered two new songs, “Carry The Weight” and “From The First Note.” These tracks are the band’s first since the tragic death of Kyle Pavone.

Joshua Moore commented:

“When Kyle passed away, it changed everything for us personally and, as a byproduct, everything for the band. 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.”

The band also added:

“‘Carry The Weight’ is about dealing with the immense grief and sadness throughout navigating the loss of Kyle. 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.”

“[‘From the First Note’] shows the other side of the loss of Kyle, remembering him and all the moments we shared, what we’ve created together, and how he will always be a part of us. That we can find his light in every aspect of the band, and feel thankful that we got to have that time of our lives with him. It’s a song about celebrating our accomplishments together, reliving the moments from our youngest days as a band, and knowing that he’s with us as we move forward.”

We Came As Romans Share New Live Videos For “Cold Like War” & “Lost In The Moment”

We Came As Romans have shared new live videos for “Cold Like War” and “Lost In The Moment.“ The clips were filmed during the band’s set at the 2019 Swanfest in Anaheim, CA. This news comes after the group recently confirmed that they have been writing and “throwing a few demos around” for their next album. The effort will be their first since the tragic death of Kyle Pavone.

We Came As Romans Working On New Album

We Came As Romans‘ Dave Stephens has confirmed to Billboard that the band have been writing and “throwing a few demos around” for their next album. The effort will be the group’s first since the tragic death of Kyle Pavone.

Stephens said the following:

“We’ve been throwing a few demos around. I love that we’re going into the studio with so much to write about and something that hits home for all of us so hard. We’ve never had something so terrible happen, and I think it’s going to be therapeutic to write about it and be together and go through the whole process. I’m actually really looking forward to it.”

“Every record we make some kind of progression, so there’ll be a progression on this one, but I don’t think we’re going to do anything too drastic. It’s still gonna sound like We Came As Romans.”

He also added that the band are hoping to use some of Pavone‘s final writings for the effort:

“He was always writing, and I’m pretty sure he gave Lou [Cotton], our guitarist, a few different things he wrote. We’re gonna try and get into his laptop, too, ’cause I’m sure he had just files and files and files of stuff there, too. So that’s a goal. We would love to include him in this record as much as we can, aside from just writing about him.”

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.”
