We Came As Romans Premiere Official Music Video for “Hope”

Detroit, MI’s We Came As Romans is premiering their new music video for “Hope” today on

Bassist Andrew Glass, who has always played an integral role in the visual and artistic direction of the band – ranging from album art to music videos – speaks of the concept behind the video for “Hope” explaining, “Standing up and becoming united as one, is what the main idea of the video is. In the video, you see our vocalists Dave Stephens and Kyle Pavone becoming inspired and compelled to create a change within themselves and others. Hope is a fire that burns inside us all and one which can never be put out.”

The music video was filmed by directors Dan Kennedy and Rasa Acharya (Say Anything, Texas In July).

The song comes from their recently released digital deluxe version of Understanding What We’ve Grown To Be, which in addition to “Hope” includes two more new songs – “Let These Words Last Forever” and “The King of Silence”. The deluxe album is available now through digital retailers such as iTunes and Amazon. A physical release is scheduled for the Spring with more information and pre-orders to be available soon through Understanding What We’ve Grown To Be was originally released in September 2011 and debuted at No. 20 on the Billboard Current Top 200.
