We Came as Romans will be performing March 28 at El Corazon.
A lot went into writing your favorite song, but how much do you really know about it? This week Joshua Moore, guitarist of Detroit post-hardcore band We Came As Romans, delves into finding comfort during the rough times, headlining the Fire & Ice Tour, and touring in a bandwagon.
Album:Understanding What We've Grown To Be
Release Date: September 13th, 2011
When it was written: In late 2010
Where it was written: It was written while we were on the road, so probably on a drive in our old bandwagon that we used to tour in.
Favorite line in the song: "Six years ago I married a bride, I'm not sure she was meant to be mine."
Which part was the hardest to come up with: It all came together pretty quickly after I sat down to write it. I don't recall having trouble with any part in particular, everything flowed really well.
Odd fact about song: After releasing our debut full-length To Plant a Seed (but before Understanding What We've Grown to Be) we recorded a song called "To Move On is to Grow" as a single to release between the two full-length albums. We had a choice between putting out that song and the earliest version of this song. We chose "To Move On Is To Grow" for the single.
What was your inspiration for writing the song: The whole song is just about the band and our lives as a band, touring together and dedicating our time to the band. And after putting so much time and effort into it, things still go wrong sometimes and we still have our bad days. It's about trying to take comfort in each other to get through those tough times.
When was your favorite time performing it live: Probably right now! We're currently headlining the Fire & Ice Tour and more people than ever before are singing along to the choruses as well. It's really exciting. We're opening our set with it right now, and it's a great way to start the show.
