We Came As Romans have announced that they’re working on a new album whilst on their first headlining tour since the death of the vocalist Kyle Pavone, who sadly passed away last year.

In an interview with Billboard, frontman Dave Stephens said that they’ve been writing on the road and will spend the summer creating a new album.“We’ve been throwing a few demos around,” Dave explained.

“I love that we’re going into the studio with so much to write about and something that hits home for all of us so hard. We’ve never had something so terrible happen, and I think it’s going to be therapeutic to write about it and be together and go through the whole process. I’m actually really looking forward to it.”

He continued “Every record we make some kind of progression, so there’ll be a progression on this one, but I don’t think we’re going to do anything too drastic. It’s still gonna sound as We Came As Romans.”

And while the tragic loss of Kyle will be one of the focuses of the upcoming album,

Dave also explained that whilst the loss of Kyle will be one of the focuses for the album, they’ll also be including music written by Kyle, “He was always writing, and I’m pretty sure he gave Lou (Cotton), our guitarist, a few different things he wrote… We’re gonna try and get into his laptop, too, ’cause I’m sure he had just files and files and files of stuff there, too. So that’s a goal. We would love to include him in this record as much as we can, aside from just writing about him.”

Currently, they have no intentions of replacing him “There’s just no one who could replace.  I feel like if we added another singer it would feel like replacing him, whereas if it’s just me then I’m just covering his parts. It wouldn’t tear at our fan base or our hearts as much as seeing someone else up there singing those words and these songs” Dave shared.
