ince their 2005 inception, We Came As Romans has successfully delivered a refreshing lyrical perspective that focuses on spreading the positive message of being good people and loving one another. The highly anticipated follow-up album, "Understanding What We've Grown To Be", is released by UNFD and courtesy of punk rock heritage label Equal Vision. For their sophomore release, We Came As Romans returned to Foundation Recording Studio with their longtime friend and producer, Joey Sturgis [The Devil Wears Prada, Asking Alexandria, Attack Attack!]. The new material carries the band's signature sound of intricate guitar riffs, both mosh-worthy and melodic breakdowns, and the flawless intertwining of dual vocals from David Stephens and Kyle Pavone. Musically and lyrically, "Understanding What We've Grown To Be" holds a much darker tone than their previous release, "To Plant A Seed". While still maintaining the band's overall theme of positivity and brotherhood, the new material takes on a more straightforward approach to life's struggles and the challenges of growing up. The juxtaposition of brutal breakdowns and chugging minor arpeggios with Pavone's smooth croons, Stephens' fierce and gut-wrenching screams, and crisp electronic elements creates an in-your-face sound that is distinctly We Came As Romans.
