Detroit post hardcore act We Came As Romans will release third full-length album, "Tracing Back Roots," in Europe on July 26th via Nuclear Blast Records.
In March, the band traveled to Los Angeles to record the new album, teaming up with producer John Feldman. "It was a true joy to be included in Tracing Back Roots," notes Feldmann. "We Came As Romans push the boundaries of what modern alternative music should be, while staying authentic to their roots. One of the few new bands to keep true to their vision while developing as artists."
Lyricist/guitarist Joshua Moore adds, "It was honestly a dream come true for the band to be working with John Feldmann, with him being so well-respected and having produced some of our favorite CDs growing up. He brought this amazing new perspective to our group and really pushed me to step outside the box as a writer. I truly believe that this next record is all of the best elements of what we have done so far in music, combined with where we want to go and the music we want to play going forward."
Moore further elaborates on the band's musical evolution stating, "Though we've grown as individuals, musicians, and as a band over the years, we have never changed the meaning behind what our band is, and if anything, on this record we found greater meaning and purpose in the message we are trying to send to listeners. I think our fans will really understand and see that once they hear the album." More...
