What could have been just another cold, November night turned into a celebration as We Came As Romans made a special stop in Cleveland on their way home after the Fallout Tour. Best friends Dave Stephens (Vocals), Kyle Pavone (Vocals), Joshua Moore (Guitar), Lou Cotton (Guitar), Andy Glass (Bass) and Eric Choi (Drums) turned the Monday blues into a giant sing-along, complete with new songs and old favorites.
Dual vocals of Pavone and Stephens blend and contrast in perfect harmony, complementing each song with passion and excitement. The positive message in WCAR music has been adopted by a generation of fans who are drawn to lyrics of hope set to melodic hardcore music. WCAR honored the packed house in Cleveland by performing “Tracing Back Roots”, a song dedicated to WCAR fans. Lyrics from the song say, “Every story you tell of feeling alive/When you hear these words/And you change your life/You change your mind, the way you think/These words last forever on your skin in ink “ sharing their close connection with fans, many of whom have WCAR lyrics tattooed on their bodies.
WCAR creates an enormous circle of fun, complete with moshing, circle pits, and crowd surfing. Moore and Cotton lead the music, alternating powerful riffs with exhilarating melodies. Glass, on bass guitar is front and center, setting down a solid groove in synch with Choi keeping the beat with creative fills and faultless timing. The night did not end with an extended encore, because when WCAR leaves the stage you just want them back. They stayed long after the show, listening to stories of why their music has become essential to fans. Always gracious, Glass stopped to autograph a bass guitar for a young fan, after demonstrating a slap bass technique in the lobby.
Next, WCAR will spend a few weeks of well-deserved rest and relaxation at home, while exploring the new Call of Duty game, Black Ops 3. Then, it is off to Europe with a month-long tour through December that boosts VIP packages and fun for fans across the pond.
