About We Came As Romans
We Came as Romans hail from Troy, MI, an upscale Detroit suburb that gave birth to the bandâ€™s blend of post-hardcore and melodic screamo. Guitarist Joshua Moore, bassist Lou Cotton, drummer Eric Choi, guitarist Lou Cotton, and vocalists David Stephens and Kyle Pavone headlined shows in the Michigan area before graduating to the national circuit, where they opened shows for the likes of Our Last Night, Gwen Stacy, and The Number Twelve Looks Like You. We Came as Romans took time off in September 2008 to record an EP, Dreams, which they released for free two months later. Over 50,000 copies were downloaded within its first week of availability, and the band used that momentum to sign a contract with Equal Vision Records in early 2009. They returned to the studio with Joey Sturgis (who had previously recorded the group’s EP) that same year to work on a full-length album, To Plant a Seed, which was released that fall.
