We Came as Romans, the Michigan scene heroes who are building to the late July release of their self-titled fourth studio album, have a lot on their plates over the next two months. Aside from dropping the official video for "Regenerate" exclusively today on Fuse, the guys are also joining friends Pierce the Veil and August Burns Red in Pomona, Calif. this month where they'll kick off the Vans Warped Tour 2015.
But even with all that on their minds, WCAR made it a point to remember the listeners that carried them successfully through their first three album cycles. Here's bassist Andy Glass on the new video, premiering above.
"This video was something we really wanted our fans to be apart of. 'Regenerate' is about getting rid of a damaged mentality and giving restoration to the things that matter. We want our fans to grow with us as we shed old skin, moving forward as a band, and as a family. It was an integral part for us to involve our amazing hometown fans, who helped invoke and express emotion through the video.”
It's always a true test of any musician's mettle to endure the emotional pressures that come with releasing a new body of work, but doing so midway through one of the hottest and hardest DIY tours in the industry takes serious backbone. If Andy's attitude is any indication of the group mentality in We Came as Romans, we imagine the band finishing the year with flying colors.
