2 years after arguably their best record to date was released in Cold Like War, and just a year after their talisman, vocalist Kyle Pavone passed away, We Came As Romans are back with not one, but two new songs. “Carry The Weight” and “From The First Note” – the latter of which is definitely a tribute and throwback to their To Plant A Seed days a decade ago. Needless to say, longtime fans of the band will be impressed and emotionally gratified by both tracks, especially on the line “you’ll always be a part of me”.
Stream both the new tracks below, and you’ll want to keep an eye out for details on the band’s upcoming record as well. Kyle Pavone would certainly be proud.
Are you ready for new music from We Came As Romans? So are we. While the band did write new music over the summer, and it’s unknown what the band will sound like without vocalist Kyle Pavone after his tragic passing a year ago, we’re hoping the band’s new music will be as inspiring as 2017’s Cold Like War.
Luckily for us, it appears that time is coming soon – and there might well be more than one song, too! The band posted on Twitter asking their fans if they wanted new music, and the only correct answer is yes.
Through 5 distinct records and subtle stylistic changes, post-hardcore band We Came As Romans have made a huge name for themselves in the music scene, culminating in 2017’s career-defining Cold Like War album. The tragically devastating passing of vocalist Kyle Pavone just a few months ago was certainly heartbreaking – even his haunting second-to-last tweet still sends chills down the spine.
We’re excited to count down 10 of the band’s best songs. At least one song has been culled from each of the band’s 5 full-lengths to date, and there might even be a few surprises in here as well. Take a read below. Feel free to agree, disagree, etc.
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.
