Metalcore legends, WE CAME AS ROMANS have today announced the release for their new album, Darkbloom, their first new album in five years, set to drop on October 14th, 2022 via Sharptone Records. The band have launched pre-orders of a very special run of vinyl, limited to only 1000, featuring an exclusive layout with a 10-page booklet available now from iamdarkbloom.com.

Today's announcement is highlighted by the release of brand new single "Plagued" and its accompanying visualizer. Watch the visualizer BELOW.

. Speaking on the news of the release of their new album, WE CAME AS ROMANS guitarist Josh Moore shares:

"We are so excited to finally be able to announce the release of our next record Darkbloom. This will be our first record in five years, and we want to thank you all for being patient with us as we were figuring out if we could, and how we could continue moving forward as a band. We wrote this record about all the feelings we felt, and all the emotional places we lived in, navigating the loss of our brother Kyle. Every song is about a different part of our lives over the past few years, an insight to the struggles we had, and how we were able to make it to where we are now. We hope you all can take a deep dive into these songs and connect with us - and if you're feeling any of the ways we did, we hope these songs can help you push forward.

This record is dedicated to Kyle - we'll never forget you, and we will never stop saying your name."

Speaking on their brand new track, "Plagued", Moore continues,

"We've been waiting forever to release this song, and we're stoked to finally put it out! We finished writing "Plagued" in January 2020, so it's great to finally share it with our fans. My friend who I do a ton of writing with, Nick Sampson, texted me a little video of this idea for a riff he was working on - and I loved it. So I drove over to his place and we finished the song together - and then our friend Ryan Leitru came in and we all sat down and wrote the vocals to it. Over a year later, when we were in the studio recording the album with Drew Fulk - we smoothed out just a few parts and the song was done! And now here we are - over two years later, able to share "Plagued" with you!

Lyrically, "Plagued" was about a part in the grieving process we all went through - feeling like the anguish you're dealing with, then anger you're dealing with, is turning you into a different person. That you're watching yourself change into someone you don't want to be - being consumed and overwhelmed by your grief. It's an incredibly difficult thing to live with, and I hope this song can help anyone who's feeling the same way."
