We Came As Romans formed in 2005 and is comprised of Dave Stephens [vocals], Kyle Pavone [vocals], Joshua Moore [lyrics/guitar], Eric Choi [drums], Lou Cotton [guitar] and Andrew Glass [bass].
"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," explains We Came As Romans' lyricist and guitarist Joshua Moore, in regards to the band's musical evolution. "I think our fans will really understand and see that once they hear the album."
The Detroit, MI-based band will release their third full-length album, Tracing Back Roots, on July 23 via Equal Vision Records.
The eleven track album follows Understanding What We've Grown To Be, which was released in September 2011 and debuted at No. 20 on the Billboard Current Top 200. To date, Understanding What We've Grown To Be and the band's debut-full-length, To Plant A Seed, have sold over 183,000 copies combined. Additional Billboard Chart debut placements for Understanding What We've Grown To Be included: #5 on Top Hard Music, #7 Independent, #10 Top Current Rock, #15 Current Digital, and #21 on the Top 200 Album Chart.
