The Press Release:
This spring, WE CAME AS ROMANS — Joshua Moore (guitar), Dave Stephens (vocals), Lou Cotton (guitar), Andy Glass (bass) and David Puckett (drums) — will embark on an 10th-anniversary tour celebrating their landmark, 2009-released album “To Plant A Seed”.
“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.
“We’re really excited to announce the 10-year-anniversary tour for our first record ‘To Plant A Seed’,” says Moore. “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.”
He continues: “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 WCAR — 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.”
The tour kicks off on March 5 in Chicago and runs through April 11 in Pontiac, Michigan, and will feature support from THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA, GIDEON and DAYSEEKER. All dates are below. Tickets go on sale on Friday, November 22 at 10 a.m. local time.
Earlier this fall, WCAR released two brand new songs — “Carry The Weight” and “From The First Note”. These were the first tracks that the band released since singer Kyle Pavone’s tragic passing in August 2018.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Truth be told I’ve never really found myself following WCAR outside of the occasional tour post or album discussion. It’s not for lack of interest as much as you cannot be everywhere no matter how interested you might be in a group. Though it’s really early to know if I will be on point for this one, it is taking place in a venue that I am really curious about when it hits town. Believe it or not, despite a number of rock-solid Metal shows having come through here at this Warsaw venue that they will visit I’ve never been there yet. Let me add how I’ve only ever seen TDWP once and have no background on either Gideon or Dayseeker so if I do go I will be supporting everyone that hits the stage. That’s how this is supposed to go after all. Let’s close this one up now and ask you to chime in down below with your own thoughts about it. Is this a tour that you are looking forward to? Chime in down below and let us know what you think. It’s always nice to find your opinion added to the mix. See you next time.
