City Slang: We Came As Romans album out this week

Posted By on Sat, Jul 20, 2013 at 9:04 PM

Detroit’s We Came As Romans has a new album out July 23 - Tracing Back Roots via Equal Vision Records.

According to a statement, “The six-piece, Detroit-based band recorded the album, their third full-length, with John Feldmann [The Used, Black Veil Brides, All Time Low] in March and are now on the Vans Warped Tour (performing on the Main Stage), which will be followed by nearly non-stop international and US headline touring through the remainder of the year.”

“Tracing Back Roots is, by far, their most accessible album to date - with huge, catchy choruses and an overall warmness to the album's sound. Most notably, Tracing Back Roots showcases vocalist Dave Stephens in a new light - with the incorporation of his clean singing for the first time ever. In addition to his signature powerful, yet articulate, screams, Stephens now also displays rich melodic tones and gritty textures, that perfectly balances the soaring, smooth croons of co-vocalist Kyle Pavone.”
