'Black Hole'



We Came As Romans are back with another new track, and this one is a proper anthem. 

The track is called 'Black Hole' and combines hard rock melody with post-hardcore intensity whilst describing the feeling of falling into the darker regions of your mind.

And based on the contents of their recent album 'Below', Beartooth's Caleb Shomo is a perfect guest to add his own experience to the storyline, with honest and open imagery of what it's like to feel completely lost.

It's another vital piece of music from a band that continue to come back stronger and stronger each time.

Vocalist Dave Stephens has explained a bit about the track and the collaboration:

"Black Hole was the very last song that we wrote for the record. We had this idea of what we wanted it to sound like, and we wrote a bunch of music for it throughout our time in L.A. But we were never really satisfied with what we created. With only a week left in the studio, we had finally created something that we were all stoked about - and it was time to put a message to the song."

"The lyrics to Black Hole are about dealing with the anxiety that you feel going through life. For me, at the time, the anxiety I was feeling in dealing with loss and the grieving process. But we wanted to leave the song open ended enough for our fans to relate to, with anything they were going through. That anxiety is sometimes so crushing, and so heavy, and you have to deal with the weight of it, the gravity of the situations you're in, and sometimes it just feels like an endless cycle."

"When the song was complete, we sent it over to a long time friend of ours - Caleb Shomo. We've been playing shows together for well over 10 years now, and we're so happy we've finally had a chance to collaborate on a song together. Caleb is an amazing vocalist and the song wouldn't be the same without his contribution!"


Here we go:



It follows on from 'Darkbloom', which sounds like this:
