We Came As Romans, the metalcore band out of Troy, Michigan have unveiled a new music video for their single "Lost in the Moment” off their upcoming fifth studio album Cold Like War. The new LP is set to be released on Oct. 20 through SharpTone Records. The explosive video for the “Lost in the Moment" track can be seen above. The new LP is available for pre-order here.
WCAR have been through some pretty dark days. This year’s full-length album, considered by the group as a ‘return to action," is a culmination, musically and emotionally, of the internal conflict, the band has endured over the past two years. "Cold Like War is about struggle, those trials,” guitarist and songwriter Joshua Moore said in a press statement. “They can turn us towards each other, towards those we love, towards those who have supported us. Because the last two years to us have felt like this giant war – an internal war – to figure out the right path for our band; to figure out how to stay together and be happy again.”
What can fans expect from the new WCAR album? Musically, a return to the explosive head-banging metalcore elements, fused with programmed modern synth sounds that launched their compelling career. Feeling they had lost creative direction and focus over the past couple of records, the band felt it was time to return to the heavy band of the past; a sound missed by the members and their legion of loyal fans. Lyrically, the complication of songs represents life’s adversity in all of its forms; frustration, joy, anger, sorrow, love, hate — the vast array of emotional states that is part of being human and alive.
“Lost in the Moment" targets not getting caught in a life of routine, sameness, and monotony. Instead of watching life pass you by, take risks, break free; make the most out of every day, because if you don’t, you have no one to blame but yourself. Musically, the song has a fantastic breakdown, colliding two musical worlds, slamming the listener in the face as only We Came As Romans can.
The crossover metallers continue to build anticipation ahead of the impending release of Cold Like War which arrives midway through a slew of fall tour dates for the ‘Rage on the Stage’ tour. Lending support to headliners I Prevail, along with Escape The Fate and the Word Alive, WCAR is also gearing up for their headline dates interspersed throughout the massive trek. The tour kicked off Sept. 20 in Oklahoma City and will run through the beginning of December, wrapping up in Des Moines, Iowa. Crisscrossing throughout the U.S. and Canada 'Rage on the Stage' brings together some of the biggest bands in metalcore in the music scene today, much to the delight of metalcore fans throughout North America.
