We Came As Romans have launched a video for their new song From The First Note.
It is their second single released since the death of frontman Kyle Pavone in August 2018, and follows Carry The Weight that arrived last September.
Guitarist Joshua Moore says: “From The First Note is a song that celebrates the time we spent with Kyle and recognizes how remarkable he was a brother and bandmate.
“In terms of text, I could refer to To Plant A Seed and Tracing Back Roots, both written about the beginning of the band and how we lived together. I was able to take the recorded voice of Kyle from TPAS and fit it in the bridge of the song, so we can always hear him when we listen and play. “
Bass player Andy Glass adds: “We wrote From The First Note as a promise to Kyle to not only preserve the amazing moments and memories that we had together, but to continue the legacy of everything we have built together.
“The video shows the band that plays in a dreamlike state, surrounded by beautiful colors and flowers. Our albums have had themes such as roots, branches and overall growth over the years. So we thought it was only good to create something that not only captured that essence, but also persevered.

We Came As Romans are going on tour in the US later this year to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of To Plant A Seed, which will include The Devil Wears Prada, Gideo and Dayseeker.
Moore says: “It has been a great privilege to see our fans connect with us through music for the past ten years, and it all started with To Plant A Seed. When we recorded it in 2009, we had no idea where it would take us or what we were really doing, and it’s great to see that we can still play these songs and feel that bond with you.
“But in the course of 10 years we have released four other albums and we are even working on a fifth! That said, we’re going to throw these numbers into the vault of the old We Came As Romans and take them out of all future set lists after this tour. So make sure you grab your tickets and hear these songs live one last time. “
