We Came As Romans have released their first single since their self-titled record and it gets back to the heavier WCAR many fans missed the last time around. While it’s still got Kyle Pavone’s clean vocals thrown in and is not the heaviest track of their career, it endeavors to set the tone for the next, as yet unannounced, record.
In our last interview with We Came As Romans, the band admitted that there were things that they tried with their most recent record that did not end up being successful and they were eager to return to their roots. The new song, “Wasted Age,” is the first that the band have released on new label Sharptone Records and without drummer Eric Choi.
The band had this to say about the new song:
“When we got together and wrote ‘Wasted Age,’ we realized it was a snapshot of what we‘ve been through and are still going through as a band,” WCAR said about the song. “We are eager to play this every night on the Unbreakable Tour with Parkway Drive. This one is for our fans who continue to support us. Thank you.”
And of Choi’s departure:
“We’ve thoroughly enjoyed the 10 years we’ve spent with Eric in this band and the countless memories we’ve made together. He is an extremely talented musician and a great person, but life happens andwe‘re all torn in different ways as we grow older. Eric has chose to pursue a different future than we have, and as someone we respect and deeply care for,we need to allow him to live his life. The band will continue on and Eric will be successful in whatever he chooses to do and we only wish him the best.”
