Though his loss certainly created a void both for We Came As Romans and for the band’s fans themselves, the spirited voice of the late Kyle Pavone certainly lives on whenever he’s heard. While we know that some of his final vocal contributions will feature on the band’s upcoming album, Pavone has made his voice heard from beyond once again with “LA Never Says Goodbye”, a collaboration with rising EDM artist Kayzo that features on his new record.
Having crossed paths many times over the years, the careers of both Tyler Carter and the late Kyle Pavone of We Came As Romans have become almost interwoven in the modern post-hardcore scene. A short time ago, the Issues frontman released a new video honoring Kyle, where he talks about Kyle’s life and that his untimely death is, in his words, “hard to accept”. It’s a genuinely heartfelt video, so if you have the time to watch it, it’s highly recommended.
We Came As Romans will be celebrating the life of Kyle Pavone with a special tribute show on October 28th. The lineup includes August Burns Red’s Jake Luhrs; Memphis May Fire’s Matty Mullins; I Prevail’s Eric Vanlerberghe, members of Born of Osiris, For Today, and Nick Sampson.

Longtime We Came As Romans vocalist Kyle Pavone has passed away at the age of 28. Details are scarce at the moment, but the band has a released a statement, which you can find below. Truly a tragedy for friends, family, and anyone that knew him – over the last few years, his voice in particular is one that had surely come into his own, especially on Cold Like War, which ranks as some of the most accomplished We Came As Romans material to date.
