We Came As Romans - 2021

In Spring 2020, We Came As Romans set out to perform their landmark 2009 album, To Plant A Seed, in its entirety for the last time on an anniversary tour that was postponed due to COVID-19. Now, the band is back and the tour is rescheduled for this fall.

To Plant A Seed was a definitive sonic statement for We Came As Romans and remains a fan favorite through this day. It’s only fitting that the band commemorate the release with a tour before retiring these songs to the WCAR vault and making way for new fan favorites.

When the tour was first announced, guitarist Joshua Moore had this to say:

“We’re really excited to announce the anniversary tour for our first record, To Plant A Seed. 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.

The tour will feature special guests The Devil Wears Prada, Dayseeker, and Hollow Front, and kicks off on September 29. Tickets go on sale on Friday, June 25 at 10 am local time. Pre-sale tickets are available now.

HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
