We Came As Romans is now streaming their new single "Golden," whose lyrics seem to pay tribute to their late frontman Kyle Pavone. Pavone passed away in 2018 and We Came As Romans' upcoming record Darkbloom is their first full-length with keyboardist Dave Stephens stepping up as lead vocalist in his place.
"We are so excited to finally be able to announce the release of our next record Darkbloom," said guitarist Josh Moore. "This will be our first record in five years, and we want to thank you all for being patient with us as we were figuring out if we could, and how we could continue moving forward as a band.
"We wrote this record about all the feelings we felt, and all the emotional places we lived in, navigating the loss of our brother [deceased vocalist Kyle Pavone]. Every song is about a different part of our lives over the past few years, an insight to the struggles we had, and how we were able to make it to where we are now. We hope you all can take a deep dive into these songs and connect with us – and if you're feeling any of the ways we did, we hope these songs can help you push forward.
"This record is dedicated to Kyle – we'll never forget you, and we will never stop saying your name."
