About We Came As Romans
We Came as Romans, an American metalcore band from Troy, Michigan, formed in 2005. During the beginning years, high school classmates Sean Zelda, Dave Stephens, Jonny Nabors, Mark Myatt, and Joshua Moore formed a band called This Emergency, and they performed various shows throughout the Detroit metro area. In November 2005, the band parted ways with bass player Jonny Nabors and replaced him with Sean Daly. Additionally, Zelda quit to pursue education at the University of Michigan. In the summer of 2006, a close friend of the band and another high school classmate, Larry Clark, officially joined on vocals, and the band changed their name to We Came as Romans. After Clark left in late 2007, the band added Chris Moore as the new singer.

On September 7, 2021, We Came as Romans released a new single called “Black Hole” featuring Caleb Shomo of Beartooth.
