As part of our ongoing commitment to helping educate and protect against the danger of substance abuse. The Kyle Pavone Foundation has launched an initiative to provide Naloxone and Narcan training to artists and crew members at music festivals and live events nationwide during the summer of 2022.
The program will consist of distributing Narcan free of cost to artists and crew after being trained in the safe and proper administration of it. The training will be offered daily backstage to anyone interested. In addition, we will be educating people on the details of the Good Samaritan Law and how it applies to these situations.
The proceeds from our merch stand and donations will be used to fund this initiative so make sure to stop by our tent. We look forward to seeing everyone as we bring this program across the country.
Wishing everyone an awesome and safe summer.

Post-hardcore band, We Came as Romans are taking over Empire Control Room & Garage this summer on Tuesday, August 4th as part of their To Plant a Seed 10 Year Anniversary Tour. Joining them will be metalcore bands The Devil Wears Prada, Gideon and Dayseeker. Doors to the venue open at 7:00 pm and the first band will light the stage up an hour later at 8. The show is for all ages with a $5 surcharge for minors and general admission tickets are going for $27 and trust me, you don’t want to miss this one.
We Came as Romans formed in Troy, Michigan in 2005 and have undergone multiple lineup changes over the years but their message has always remained clear – to overcome your demons and rise above them. The band released their debut album To Plant a Seed in 2009 and continued to create refreshing danceable metalcore with melodic undertones. Contrary to most bands of the genre, We Came as Romans channel emotions of deeper consciousness with lyrics that promote hopefulness during the darkest of times. With their unique approach, they have made their way to becoming one of the most enduring hardcore bands of our time.
After the tragic death of vocalist and keyboardist Kyle Pavone in 2018, We Came as Romans came to the decision to move forward as a band but had no interest in replacing Pavone. It’s been an extremely difficult time for the band after losing a good friend and fellow bandmate as we can all imagine. However, as they work on a new album, they are taking the time to put much thought and care into every aspect of it so patience from the fans will be very rewarding. Currently, they are getting ready for their 2020 tour in which they will play To Plant a Seed in its entirety and as they continue to carry on, they want to put out music that displays hope and gratitude in the memory of their fallen friend, and they are already fulfilling that desire.
Come support and embrace the music of We Came as Romans and other great names in post-hardcore at Empire this August!

We Came As Romans were one of the many tours impacted by the coronavirus pandemic that has lead to social distancing, capacity restrictions and postponed events. The band have already announced the rescheduled dates just days after letting fans know they were in the works with all previously purchased tickets being honored.
WCAR kicked off their To Plant A Seed 10-year anniversary tour in Chicago March 5 with support from the Devil Wears Prada, Gideon and Dayseeker. Less than a week in, they announced they would be postponing the remaining dates, making their final show of the run Montreal on March 11. However, they also stated all three acts would return.
“Due to circumstances beyond our control [and] with our fans safety [and] health in mind above all else, we are forced to postpone the “To Plant A Seed 10 Year Anniversary Tour” until July,” We Came As Romans said in an Instagram post. “Our team has been working tirelessly to reschedule a show in every city we have to miss. At this time, over half of the new dates are confirmed, and we will announce ALL dates in the next few days.
“We are absolutely devastated about this, this tour is something we’ve been dreaming about for a long time, and the shows that we have played so far proved to be the biggest, best [and] most emotional shows we have ever played as a band. A massive thank you to our fans who have been coming to these shows-the family we have made together is amazing. We are so thankful that THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA, GIDEON & DAYSEEKER will all continue the tour with us in July. All tickets [and] VIPs will be honored with your new show date. To make the most of this unfortunate time off, we are moving up our time in the studio to finish our new album and will be releasing new music in the coming months ahead of schedule. We love you all and are so thankful for your support [and] patience – Dave, Joshua, David, Andy & Lou”

Guitarist Joshua Moore says: “From The First Note is a song the celebrates the time that we got to spend with Kyle and acknowledges how truly remarkable of a brother and bandmate he was.
“Lyrically, I was able to reference To Plant A Seed and Tracing Back Roots, which were both written about the start of the band and how we lived together. I was able to take Kyle’s recorded vocal from TPAS and fit it into the bridge of the song, so we can always hear him when we listen and play it.”
Bassist Andy Glass adds: “We wrote From The First Note as a promise to Kyle to not only preserve the amazing moments and memories we had together, but to continue carrying on the legacy of everything we built together.
“The video portrays the band playing in a dream-like state, surrounded by beautiful colours and flowers. Our albums throughout the years have had themes of roots, branches, and overall growth. So we felt it was only right to create something that not only captured that essence but persevered it as well.”
We Came As Romans will head out on a US tour later this year to celebrate the 10th anniversary of To Plant A Seed, where they’ll be joined by The Devil Wears Prada, Gideo and Dayseeker.
Moore says: “Being able to watch our fans connect with us through music over the last decade has been an amazing privilege, and it all started with To Plant A Seed. Way back in 2009 when we recorded it, we had no idea where it would take us or what we were really even doing, and it’s awesome to see that we can play these songs still, and feel that connection with you.
“But over the course of 10 years, we’ve released four other albums and we’re even working on a fifth! With that being said, we are going to be throwing these songs into the vault of old We Came As Romans – and retiring them from all future setlists after this tour. So make sure you grab your tickets and come hear these songs one last time live.”
