We Came As Romans dropped a new video today for ‘From The First Note’.
‘From The First Note’ and ‘Carry The Weight’ were the first songs the band released since the tragic passing of singer Kyle Pavone in 2018.
“‘FTFN’ is a song that celebrates the time that we got to spend with Kyle and acknowledges how truly remarkable of a brother and bandmate he was” says Moore. “Lyrically, I was able to reference ‘To Plant a Seed and ‘Tracing Back Roots’ – which were both written about the start of the band and how we lived together. I was able to take Kyle’s recorded vocal from ‘TPAS’ and fit it into the bridge of the song, so we can always hear him when we listen and play it”.
“We wrote ‘From The First Note’ as a promise to Kyle to not only preserve the amazing moments and memories we had together, but to continue carrying on the legacy of everything we built together” says Glass. “The video portrays the band playing in a dream-like state, surrounded by beautiful colors and flowers. Our albums throughout the years have had themes of roots, branches, and overall growth. So we felt it was only right to create something that not only captured that essence but persevered it as well”.
“To Plant A Seed” was a definitive sonic statement for We Came As Romans and remains a fan favorite through this day. It’s only fitting that the band commemorate the release.
“Being able to watch our fans connect with us through music over the last decade has been an amazing privilege, and it all started with ‘To Plant A Seed’. Way back in 2009 when we recorded it, we had no idea where it would take us or what we were really even doing, and it’s awesome to see that we can play these songs still, and feel that connection with you”. He continued: “But over the course of 10 years, we’ve released four other albums and we’re even working on a fifth!”.
We Came As Romans will hit US roads again with the ‘To Plant A Seed’ 10 Year Anniversary Tour, starting March 5th in Chicago. They will be joined by The Devil Wears Prada, Gideon and Dayseeker. This is the last chance to hear said record live in it’s entirety!
