We Came As Romans Detail New Album “Tracing Back Roots”


We Came As Romans have given a title to their new full-length album which Equal Vision will have in stores on July 23rd. The group have christened the John Feldman (The Used, Black Veil Brides) produced album “Tracing Back Roots“. According to an official press release:

“It was a true joy to be included in Tracing Back Roots,” notes Feldmann. “We Came As Romans push the boundaries of what modern alternative music should be, while staying authentic to their roots. One of the few new bands to keep true to their vision while developing as artists.”

Lyricist/guitarist Joshua Moore adds, “It was honestly a dream come true for the band to be working with John Feldmann, with him being so well-respected and having produced some of our favorite CDs growing up. He brought this amazing new perspective to our group and really pushed me to step outside the box as a writer. I truly believe that this next record is all of the best elements of what we have done so far in music, combined with where we want to go and the music we want to play going forward.”

The new album most notably showcases vocalist Dave Stephens in a new light, with the incorporation of his clean singing for the first time ever. In addition to his signature powerful, yet articulate, screams, Stephens now also displays rich melodic tones and gritty textures, that perfectly balances the soaring, smooth croons of co-vocalist Kyle Pavone. Musically the album expands on the anthemic, inspiring quality of the band’s recently released single “Hope“, offering sweeping guitars interlaced with delicate synth interludes and explosive percussive elements. The resulting album is their catchiest and most universally relatable music to date.

Moore further elaborates on the band’s musical evolution stating, “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. I think our fans will really understand and see that once they hear the album.”
