“Writing this record with David Bendeth was very intense,” states vocalist Dave Stephens. “If a song wasn’t great, it was rewritten until it was, and if it still wasn’t great, it was cut. We wrote close to 40 songs for this record and only ten made the album. Beyond becoming better writers and musicians, it made us stronger as a band and as a team.”
Today, We Came As Romans release a brand new song taken from the album. Fans can now stream the lead single, “The World I Used To Know” via soundcloud by clicking on the graphic below.
The band explains the new song by stating, “When we were younger, we had a youthful spirit that made us less fearful of the changing world around us. Even though we’ve lost that and are now more aware of the negativity in the world, we need to remember those days and view the world with a hopeful spirit.”
“The World I Used To Know” will be offered as an instant grat track when pre-ordered digitally from iTunes.
