We Came as Romans hail from Troy, MI, an upscale Detroit suburb that gave birth to the band’s blend of post-hardcore and melodic screamo. Guitarist Joshua Moore, bassist Andy Glass, 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. The band toured ceaselessly following being signed to Equal Vision, with multiple trips across the United States, Canada and Europe as well as New Zealand, and Australia. In 2011, the band began work on Understanding What We've Grown to Be, a lyrically darker affair than To Plant a Seed. Amid constant touring and Joshua Moore contracting bacterial meningitis, taking him out of commission for a short while, the band released the record in September of 2011 to positive reviews, peaking at the number twenty-one slot on the Billboard 200. 2013's Tracing Back Roots offered up a cleaner, more melodic take on the genre, a musical shift that became even more pronounced on 2015's eponymous We Came As Romans.

    The Word Alive

    Metalcore

    Ever since their formation in mid-2008 The Word Alive have set themselves apart with their unmatched live show, devotion to their fans as well as their musicianship and thought provoking lyrics.

    Fast forward 1 EP and 4 full-length albums later (Deceiver, Life Cycles, REAL. and Dark Matter) the band have toured the world, and played over 1,000 shows to date with many on the horizon. Mainstays and songwriters Telle Smith, Zack Hansen and Tony Pizzuti have pushed their genre to the limits and back. Over the years their development and transition from a notable metalcore act to and undefined hard rock act hasn't gone unnoticed.

    2016 was a year that saw the band break through the radio airwaves for thefirst time in their career and with a balance between atmospheric and experimentally driven instrumentals as well as a wide dynamic range of vocals have pushed this band to the next level.

    2017 has been an exceptionally busy year for the band, who has never let member changes slow them down. With a new album completed and ready to be on repeat, it's time to hop on the bandwagon before it's too late. This band will own 2018 and beyond.
