Ten years ago, a metaphorical seed was planted – both in the hearts of their loyal fanbase, and in the band themselves. Now, We Came As Romans are plotting a special anniversary tour, celebrating the 10-year anniversary of their debut album, To Plant A Seed.
“We’re really excited to announce the 10-year-anniversary tour for our first record ‘To Plant A Seed’,” says guitarist Joshua Moore. “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.”
The tour kicks off on March 5 in Chicago and runs through April 11 in Pontiac, Michigan, and will feature support from The Devil Wears Prada, Gideon, and Dayseeker.
The Devil Wears Prada dropped their new album The Act on October 11 via Solid State Records.
“I’m not one to get particularly excited about music videos these days, but I think that the technology [director] Kevin Johnson and the crew were able to employ for ‘Chemical’ makes it something special,” said singer Mike Hranica.
7 albums and over a decade into their careers, you could be forgiven for thinking that The Devil Wears Prada might start phoning things in as they aged. Clearly this isn’t the case, however. The band is still going strong, even releasing some of the best albums in their discography (especially 8.18 and Transit Blues) in the last half decade or so. Even if you listened to the album’s pre-release singles like “Chemical” where TDWP dialed things back a bit, it’s hard not to be impressed by the band’s evolution on The Act.
