Detroit, MI's We Came As Romans is premiering their new music video for "Understanding What We've Grown To Be" on VEVO.com's front page. The video is also available on YouTube HERE. This is the third and final installment of a video series that was directed by Travis Kopach [AFI, 3OH!3, Panic! At The Disco] and filmed in Brooklyn, NY.
We Came As Romans bassist Andrew Glass, who assists with the development and execution of creative concepts for all of the band's album artwork and music videos, explains of the video series:
The three videos we shot portray a person lost, confused and struggling to find purpose in life. He sees himself at his darkest in the first video, trying endlessly to find his way out. After going through a traumatic experience, he finds his way out and his eyes begin to open to a new journey of finding out what really makes him feel alive. Through this journey the man traces back to his childhood house, where it all began. Overwhelming feelings wash over him as he remembers the feeling he once had long ago. Now, with a sense of purpose, he embarks back into the world to take the path he should have taken long ago.
The first video in the series, "Mis//Understanding", debuted on ArtistDirect in November, followed by "Just Keep Breathing" a month later on Livestream.com, where the band members also chatted live with fans following the premiere. The two prior videos can now be viewed on We Came As Romans' YouTube playlist HERE.
The band is currently overseas on a European co-headlining tour with Alesana and will next travel to Japan, for the first time, to perform at Scream Out Fest. This Spring, We Came As Romans will return home to the States for their next headlining run, The Fire and Ice Tour, with support from Emmure, blessthefall, Woe, Is Me, and The Color Morale.
We Came As Romans was also recently announced as a main stage performer for The Bamboozle on May 18th in Asbury Park, NJ. Additional main stage acts for the opening day of the 3-day festival include Skrillex, Incubus and Mac Miller. In May, the six-piece outfit will see another international first together, venturing to South America with Underoath, Protest The Hero and Close Your Eyes.
