Published Sep 11, 2018Despite the recent death of frontman Kyle Pavone, We Came as Romans have now announced they will continue on as a band and still head out on tour this fall.
The announcement arrived today via a Facebook video, in which the band's co-vocalist Dave Stephens announced We Came as Romans will not be calling it quits and instead stick to their original plan of touring with Bullet for My Valentine this fall.
"We've decided that the best course of action for the band is to do the Bullet for My Valentine tour," Stephens said. "We feel like this honours Kyle, and we can talk about his foundation, the Kyle Pavone Foundation, and carry on doing what he would've wanted us to do, and us be together on stage, playing music together with our fans."
Stephens then added, "We will not be replacing Kyle. We will be continuing on [with] the five of us, honouring his life for the next few weeks while we're on tour."
It's unclear at this point, however, what We Came as Romans have planned, if anything, after this tour.
As the group's Facebook event page lays out, We Came as Romans are scheduled to play a pair of headlining shows on September 14 and 16 before joining Bullet for My Valentine for a series of U.S. dates. You can see their schedule here.
As previously reported, Kyle Pavone passed away last month due to an accidental drug overdose. He was 28.
