Finally! The highly anticipated album is to be released July 24th 2015 via Spinefarm Records!
We Came As Romans recorded their new album with multi-platinum, award-winning producer David Bendeth (Bring Me The Horizon, Paramore, Of Mice & Men). Vocalist Dave Stepthens stated “Writing this record with David Bendeth was very intense. If a song wasn’t great, it was rewritten until it was, and if it still wasn’t great, it was cut. We wrote close to 40 songs for this record and only ten made the album. Beyond becoming better writers and musicians, it made us stronger as a band and as a team.”
New track ‘The World I Used To Know’ has been released, listen here:
The band explains the new song by stating, “When we were younger, we had a youthful spirit that made us less fearful of the changing world around us. Even though we’ve lost that and are now more aware of the negativity in the world, we need to remember those days and view the world with a hopeful spirit.”
I have listened to the song myself and recommend you give it a listen! We Came As Romans have already achieved huge success from their first two albums To Plant A Seed and Understanding What We’ve Grown To be, each topping 100,000 sales in the US only.
The band, including vocalists David Stepthens, Kyle Pavone, guitarists Joshua Moore, Lou Cotton, bassist Andrew Glass and drummer Eric Choi recently stated on their website (http://wecameasromans.com/biography/) – “Though we’ve grown as individuals, musicians, and as a band over the years, we have never changed the meaning behind what our band is, and if anything, on this record we found greater meaning and purpose in the message we are trying to send to listeners”.
Their success doesn’t end there; their most recent release, Tracing Back Roots topped the Billboard charts coming in at #8 on the Billboard 200. The album also charted #1 Independent Album, #1 Internet Album, #1 Hard Rock Album and #2 Top Rock Album. The band’s recent live DVD release Present, Future, and Past debuted #1 on the Billboard DVD charts, beating Metallica for the top spot.
The band will also perform main-stage for the entire run of the 2015 Vans Warped Tour, which officially kicks off on June 19th, 2015 in Pomona, CA at the Pomona Fairplex.
