We Came As Romans Unleash New Single and Music Video “Golden”

From Upcoming New Album ‘Darkbloom’ Out October 14

Metalcore legends We Came As Romans have today released their latest track and accompanying music video Golden. The track is taken from the band’s long-awaited forthcoming album ‘Darkbloom’ set for release on Friday, October 14 via Sharptone Records (pre-save here). A very special run of vinyl (limited to only 1000) featuring an exclusive layout with a 10-page booklet is available now from iamdarkbloom.com. Speaking on today’s release, guitarist Joshua Moore shares: 

“‘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  below and stream the track here.

LIVE REVIEW: WE CAME AS ROMANS AT STARLAND BALLROOM

We Came as Romans, one of the metalcore / post-hardcore staples, are poise to release their sixth studio album called Darkbloom on October 14th. This will be the bands first one after the untimely passing of bands member Kyle Pavone in 2018.  Currently band started tour with August Burns Red and Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, New Jersey was their second stop.

Written by Andris Jansons

We Came As Romans (abbreviated as WCAR) are known for their aggressive music with melodic passages, and they know how to bring on the heat at live show. Band did not waste their time with their set and opened with their eponymous single from their upcoming album Darkbloom. The album is full of emotions that band was undergoing after Kyle’s passing, and song contains all spectrum of those emotions, it was a perfect way for them to start of the night. They followed with Wasted Age from previous record Cold Like War, and then turned back to the new material with Daggers. Both new songs Darkbloom and Daggers are released as singles. While reached exclamation point on Daggers performance bands vocalist Dave Stephens jumped onto the barricade and with some help of the fans he stood up and finished singing together with crowd. It was unbelievable experience for many front row people.

Their set contained two more songs from upcoming album – Plagued and Black Hole. These two also are released as singles and fans already had a plenty of familiarity with them to sing along. Cold Like War was also widely represented this night as three more songs were played from it – Learning To Survive, Lost In The Moment and Cold Like War.

Whole set was full of energy and excitement as fans start to truly appreciate the new music from the band. From the people that really stood out I must note bass player Andy Glass, his energy was unrivaled during this performance. He managed to do most amazing acrobatics and did not miss a single beat in the process!!!

WCAR still has more than thirty dates coming up on this tour through United States before they will join forces with Architects later in the Fall.
