Currently on the cover of the Detroit’s Metro Times is We Came As Romans – the highly buzzed-about melodic metal sextet from Michigan – who have just released their debut full-length, To Plant A Seed, and charted high upon several Billboard charts.  Among the most impressive, the band has claimed the #2 spot on the New Alternative Artist chart, #6 on the Heatseekers chart, and even cracked the highly coveted Billboard Top 200, placing at #175.

Praise for the album continues to pour in with Ultimate-Guitar describing “To Plant A Seed in many ways follows in the footsteps of past tourmates The Devil Wears Prada, but the Michigan natives opt to take things up a notch.”

“We can’t thank our fans enough for helping us get here,” says guitarist, Joshua Moore of the achievement.  “But we’re just getting started!”

The band concludes their current headlining tour on November 18th, after which they will join I See Stars for a four week full US trek. Fans can expect the band to maintain their rigorous touring schedule throughout 2010 as well.

We Came As Romans’ live show is one not to be missed as Metro Times Music Editor, Bill Holdship explains, “Even if one isn’t exactly a big fan of the style, the execution and the passion with which it’s delivered are still something to behold.”

My Epic performing their last final show before COVID-19

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.

Comrades 2020

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."
