Press Release:

Since their 2005 inception, We Came As Romans has successfully delivered a refreshing lyrical perspective that focuses on spreading the positive message of being good people and loving one another. Their debut full-length album, 'To Plant A Seed', has already sold over 70,000 copies since its November 2009 release. The highly anticipated follow-up album, 'Understanding What We’ve Grown To Be', will be released on September 13, 2011, a month and a half out from the band's second visit to New Zealand and their first as headlining act. 

The new material carries the band’s signature sound of intricate guitar riffs, both mosh-worthy and melodic breakdowns, and the flawless intertwining of dual vocals from David Stephens and Kyle Pavone. Musically and lyrically the album holds a much darker tone than their previous release and, while still maintaining the band’s overall theme of positivity and brotherhood, the new material takes on a more straightforward approach to life's struggles and the challenges of growing up. The juxtaposition of brutal breakdowns and chugging minor arpeggios with Pavone’s smooth croons, Stephens’ fierce and gut-wrenching screams, and crisp electronic elements creates an in-your-face sound that is distinctly We Came As Romans.

Through their relentless enthusiasm and dedication to touring, We Came As Romans have proven their ability to win over any and every audience by pouring their hearts out on stage and take “giving 100%” to the next level. In the past year, the band have supported the 2010 Scream It Like You Mean It Tour with headliners Silverstein, headlined the 2011 Motel 6 Rock Yourself To Sleep Tour (which sold out 30 dates across the USA) and performed on the massive Gamechangers Tour with hardcore heavyweights A Day To Remember and Bring Me The Horizon. They also headed overseas, touring once in Australia and twice in Europe among the likes of Megadeth, NOFX, Parkway Drive, GWAR, Suicide Silence, August Burns Red and more. The band will also perform on the entirety of the American summer's 2011 Vans Warped Tour and currently appear on the cover of both Alternative Press and Substream Magazine’s Warped Tour issues.

“When kids come to see us, they already know what the songs sound like and know what they’re going to hear, it’s what they want to see that matters. We seriously give everything into making every show the most heartfelt and real show that we can give,” says lead guitarist Joshua Moore. “I want people to enjoy the music for what it is and realize the meaning; hopefully it’s something that hits close to home.”
