JUN 22 – We Came As Romans will release their new full-length album, Understanding What We’ve Grown To Be, on September 13, 2011. Today the band has released the first song off of the album, “Mis//Understanding“, which can be heard HERE.

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.

“All of the lyrics on the new album are pages out of my personal diary,” states guitarist and lyricist Joshua Moore. “Each song holds different meanings that are all very close to my heart. This song in particular is about the feeling of giving everything I have, but not seeing any change in the world as a result of it. It’s about how I’ve tried to be a positive light, but still see so many wrong things happening around me. It has allowed me take a step back and realize what I can do to improve things and have better control over my life.”

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.

We Came As Romans debut full-length album, To Plant A Seed, has already sold nearly 70,000 copies since its release on November 3, 2009. In January 2011, We Came As Romans released a deluxe edition of To Plant A Seed featuring a new single, “To Move On Is To Grow”, as well as a 38-minute DVD of live performances, exclusive interviews, and their new music video for “To Move On Is To Grow.”

This summer, We Came As Romans will be on the entirety of the 2011 Vans Warped Tour, which kicks off this Friday, June 24th in Dallas, TX. The band is currently featured on the covers of Substream Music Press and Alternative Press.
