For this week’s playlist, we asked We Came As Romans which songs get them pumped to play a show. Before they take the stage on their current Tracing Back Roots headlining run, you may encounter them listening to the following.
Guitarist Joshua Moore
LINKIN PARK – “Lost In The Echo”
This song is just awesome. There is a driving force behind it that makes me stoked. It makes me want to go on stage and put 110 percent energy into what we're doing.
ANBERLIN – “Paperthin Hymn”
We recently played a festival in the Philippines with Anberlin and I had to make sure to not expose that I'm a pretty big fan. This song, as well as “Self-Starter” off their newest release, are awesome, driving rock songs to pump yourself up with.
Vocalist Dave Stephens
NORTHLANE – “The Calling” and “Masquerade”
I really liked listening to these songs on Warped Tour this year.
STRAY FROM THE PATH – Anonymous
On the headliner, I'll be listening to Stray From The Path's new record, Anonymous. I listen to these songs while I stretch out and get my blood flowing before we take the stage!
Drummer Eric Choi
BERMUDA – “In Trenches”
THIS WILL DESTROY YOU – “A Three-Legged Workhorse”
Guitarist Lou Cotton
MAJOR LAZER – “Bubble Butt”
It gets all of us twerking before the set.
A$AP ROCKY – “Wild For The Night”
A good high-energy song that gets the blood flowing!
Bassist Andy Glass
HACKTIVIST – “Wild Ones”
I listen to this song on the bus right before I hit the stage. It gets me amped every time!
WHILE SHE SLEEPS – “Dead Behind the Eyes”
This is a super-fast and thrashy song that just makes me want to destroy everything.
Vocalist Kyle Pavone
The PROTOTYPES – “Suffocate”
PENDULUM – “Crush”
Drum and bass is the best way to get hyped for the set!
The Tracing Back Roots Tour also features Silverstein, the Color Morale, Chunk! No, Captain Chunk! and Dangerkids and runs through the beginning of November.
