“‘Golden’ is a song that’s really close to our hearts. I wrote the verse lyrics about the day that Kyle passed, that morning when we got the call, and the emotion we felt. Kyle was such a bright light in our lives, and it felt like that light was gone without him. This song was about dealing with those feelings and trying to find a way through this new darkness we all felt completely lost in.“
Prior to today, We Came As Romans released their music video for the album title track ‘Darkbloom’, ‘Darkbloom (Reimagined)’ featuring deathcore innovators Brand Of Sacrifice, and the visualizer for ‘Plagued’. Watch the music video for ‘Golden’ here or at the link below and stream the track here.
Since the release of their milestone debut album, 2009’s To Plant a Seed, diehard fans depend on We Came As Romans to deliver intimate, confessional, and autobiographical anthems, each one challenging, triumphant, and passionate. Darkbloom is a bright light in the darkness with the strength of every WCAR album before it. Singer David Stephens, guitarist Joshua Moore, bassist Andy Glass, guitarist Lou Cotton, and drummer David Puckett usher in an ambitious, courageous new era, while honoring the legacy and memory of their fallen bandmate, co-vocalist and keyboardist Kyle Pavone.
We Came As Romans ’ initial ascent was quick and assured, catapulting the band (who met as teens) into the hearts of devoted fans immersed in the metalcore, post-hardcore, and Warped Tour subculture. Their hook-filled heavy music carries an uplifting message and connects with even greater urgency live. The increasingly diverse catalog of metallic might, melodic strength, and electronic atmosphere soars in clubs, theaters, and fests. They’ve supported tastemaker acts like Bring Me The Horizon, I Prevail, Bullet For My Valentine, and The Used.
Conquering a myriad of impressive milestones since their formation – including topping Billboard’s Independent Albums chart and accumulating over 500 million catalog streams worldwide – WCAR have no intention of slowing down anytime soon.
