We Came As Romans has signed with Equal Vision Records. The band was recently featured in Alternative Press’ “Hometown Heroes” special (AP #247), having been voted #1 by the magazine’s readers.
The band — vocalists David Stephens and Kyle Pavone, guitarists Joshua Moore and Lou Cotton, bassist Andrew Glass, and drummer Eric Choi — have been extremely active since the release of their breakout EP, Dreams, on tours with the likes of Our Last Night, Gwen Stacy, and The Number 12 Looks Like You. The sextet is continuing their busy streak, hitting the road with A Plea For Purging and Burden Of A Day on April 24th. The forthcoming full US trek will conclude May 22nd in Minnesota, just before the band heads to the studio to record their debut LP.
After his work on Dreams, We Came As Romans has decided to once again record with producer Joey Sturgis (The Devil Wears Prada, Emarosa, Before Their Eyes) at his Foundation Recording Studio in Connersville, IN this June. Currently putting the final touches on the new material, Cotton promises “the full length will be similar to the EP but with a new edge to it.” The album is planned a Fall 2009 release on Equal Vision Records.
To coincide with the signing announcement, the band has prepared a video here.
