We Came As Romans announces The Tracing Back Roots Tour, presented by Tilly's and MerchNOW and in association with Alternative Press and Secret Artist. The full US-headline tour kicks off on October 2 in Grand Rapids, MI and wraps up in the band's hometown of Detroit, MI on November 3. The tour will also feature special guests: Silverstein, Chunk! No, Captain Chunk!, the Color Morale, and Dangerkids.
We Came As Romans is touring in support of their new full-length album, Tracing Back Roots, which was released on July 23 and debuted at No. 8 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart, No. 1 on the Hard Rock Albums Chart and No. 2 on the Independent Albums Chart. "We are so excited to have had such a great debut for our third record," expresses guitarist/lyricist Joshua Moore. "Making it to the top ten is an amazing accomplishment and we are forever grateful to our fans for supporting us and getting us there!"
Tracing Back Roots has already received rave reviews from fans and press alike, with Alternative Press stating, "We Came As Romans come out remarkably strong on their third full-length...'Never Let Me Go' has a surging, anthemic power (and a killer chorus) that makes it a prime candidate for radio airplay-and plenty of tearful sing-alongs at gigs," Rock Sound declaring, "We Came As Romans have boldly and brilliantly hit their stride, and designed the melodic metalcore blueprint for years to come," and Kerrang! concluding, "Tracing Back Roots will ensure that We Came As Romans continue to rise to the top. And deservedly so."
Tracing Back Roots was recorded in Los Angeles with renowned producer John Feldmann [The Used, Black Veil Brides, All Time Low] – a dream come true for the band, whose average age is just 23 years old. We Came As Romans is comprised of Dave Stephens [vocals], Kyle Pavone [vocals], Joshua Moore [lyrics/guitar], Eric Choi [drums], Lou Cotton [guitar] and Andrew Glass [bass].
Before the start of The Tracing Back Roots Tour, We Came As Romans will first head overseas for a run of shows in Europe and the Philippines. Immediately after their US headliner, the band will return overseas for the UK/Europe Vans Warped Tour and dates with Parkway Drive before wrapping up the year with Vans Warped Tour Australia.
Tracing Back Roots is available worldwide through Nuclear Blast [Europe, South Africa, Russia], We Are Unified [Australia, New Zealand], Triple Vision Records [Japan] and through Equal Vision Records for North America and all remaining territories.
