We Came As Romans have announced they will be honouring the memory of their late singer Kyle Pavone and continue their scheduled U.S. tour with Bullet For My Valentine.
In a video shared on the band’s Facebook page, co-frontman Dave Stephens addressed fans personally to discuss the plans for the upcoming tour.

In the video, Stephen’s states “The last few weeks, Kyle’s family, his fans, his friends and the five of us have been experiencing a very wide range of emotions, and for us, it’s been the most difficult time of our lives…”
“So, through all that, we’ve decided that the best course of action for the band is to do the Bullet For My Valentine tour. We feel like this honours Kyle, and we can talk about his foundation, the Kyle Pavone Foundation, and carry on doing what he would’ve wanted us to do, and us be together on stage, playing music together with our fans.”
He reassured fans that Kyle would not be replaced but rather that the five of them would be “honouring his life for the next few weeks while we’re on tour.”
Their first show with Bullet For My Valentine will be September 18th in The Pageant in St. Louis, Missouri.
Last month it was announced that clean vocalist for We Came As Romans Kyle Pavone had died of an accidental drug overdose. The band announced the news via social media with love and support from fellow musicians and fans across the world.
