We Came As Romans Will Honour Late Singer By Heading Out On Bullet For My Valentine U.S. Tour
The remaining members of We Came As Romans have announced that they will celebrate the memory of their late singer Kyle Pavone by going ahead with their previously booked U.S. tour supporting Bullet For My Valentine.
Co-frontman Dave Stephens shared this news in a video on the Michigan metalcore act’s Facebook page.
“The last few weeks, Kyle’s family, his fans, his friends and the five of us have been experiencing a very wide range of emotions, and for us, it’s been the most difficult time of our lives. Through this, we’ve been trying to be very honest with each other and open about how we’re feeling and grieving.
“So, through all that, we’ve decided that the best course of action for the band is to do the Bullet For My Valentine tour. 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.
“We will not be replacing Kyle. We will be continuing on, the five of us, and honoring his life for the next few weeks while we’re on tour.”
The band’s first show on the Bullet For My Valentine tour will be Tuesday, September 18 at the The Pageant in St. Louis, Missouri.
Kyle Pavone died of an accidental drug overdose in late August.
A toxicology report is still pending.
