We Came as Romans Biography

Recorded with up-and-coming producer Joey Sturgis (The Devil Wears Prada, Emarosa, Attack Attack) at his Foundation Recording Studio, the 10-song follow-up to their breakout EP, Dreams, finds the band expanding their blend of pop-infused metal.

Although recorded with the same producer, there is still an intentional difference between the two albums. We Came As Romans didn’t let the fact that they are only a six-piece hold them back from achieving a more symphonic sound on To Plant A Seed. “I played the trombone from Elementary school until I graduated high school and I always took the sound of a symphonic band or an orchestra with me,” explains Moore of their decision to add orchestral elements to the album such as the violins, brass, and piano interlaced throughout the album’s dynamic layers.

Not unlike the EP, the lyrics on To Plant A Seed reflect We Came As Romans’ goal of spreading a positive message through their music. The band hopes, “when people hear the album, they might not change the way they think or the way they act right now, but hopefully we've planted that ‘seed’, that thought of love, and it can grow.”

The theme of the album is carried through to the artwork. Painted by acclaimed artist Paul Romano (Mastodon, Chiodos), the album cover depicts a “very innocent looking boy in which the ‘seed’ has been planted in his mind and it grows to his heart, out of his palms and becomes branches,” describes Moore.

This Emergency era

In August 2005 friends Sean N. Zelda, David Stephens, Jonny Nabors, Mark Myatt, and Josh Moore formed a band called "This Emergency". They performed various gigs throughout the metro Detroit area. In November 2005, the band parted ways with bass player Jonny Nabors and replaced him with Sean E. Daly. In June 2006, Zelda quit the band to attend the University of Michigan. After that Mark Myatt changed their name to We Came as Romans.[4]
[edit] Demo and Dreams EP

After the name change they spent the next few years getting their members to today's lineup: Joshua Moore (guitar), David Stephens (screams/vocals), Lou Cotton (guitar), Andy Glass (bass), Eric Choi (drums), and Kyle Pavone (vocals).

Their first EP "Demonstrations", sometimes referred to as the "Motions EP", was sold at concerts and online through their website. This EP was released in early 2008 and is no longer available.[5]

According to iTunes, We Came as Romans released their second EP, Dreams, on December 12, 2008. This EP was produced by Joey Sturgis (Mychildren Mybride, Miss May I, The Devil Wears Prada, Attack Attack!).[6] AbsolutePunk gave Dreams a 79/100 review. They also gave the band high praise saying "If you think WCAR is just another hardcore band, then you are mistaken." Sputnikmusic gave them a 3.5/5. They called the EP "Short and sweet, but lasting and fulfilling".[7] They have recently finished the Leave It to the Suits Tour with I See Stars, Of Mice & Men, and Broadway.
[edit] To Plant a Seed

To Plant a Seed is We Came as Romans' first full length album and was released on November 3, 2009.[8] This album was also produced alongside Joey Sturgis like the second EP. The album features rerecorded versions of Dreams, and Intentions (featuring Tyler "Telle" Smith of The Word Alive) from their Dreams EP. They went on "The Emptiness Tour" (February and March, 2010) [9] and "The Welcome to the Circus Tour" (May and June, 2010) [10] to promote this album.
[edit] Possible new album

We Came as Romans has scheduled studio time with Joey Sturgis to record a possible follow-up of To Plant a Seed.[11] On June 11 through their Facebook and Twitter they said "We are going to the studio to do a couple new songs in a week". Nothing else is yet known of this trip to the studio. Though they have the entire month of February booked with Sturgis to record the official follow up.
[edit] Christian band debate

They are not a Christian band yet their lyrics often cover love, and hoping people change the way they act because of it.[12] When asked if they were a Christian band, their guitarist replied, "We have Christian dudes in our band and we have non-Christian dudes in our band, and as a whole, we're not a Christian band. We definitely get it, but we also get it a lot because our music, as a whole, has a positive message to it, and there aren't a whole lot of bands with a positive message who aren't Christian bands. Typically, its just Christian bands who promote a positive message. Just because we have a message, and its not about killing each other, we get the Christian band tag."[13]
