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.”

Droning On

The world came to a halt in 2020, but London-based Drones trudged on, giving a voice to the hurt that circulates with (or without) a pandemic: "You shouldn’t underestimate the power of writing things down or literally speaking them out loud, which I’m learning. I’m glad I made these songs, no matter how personal they are."
