We Came As Romans’ clean vocalist, Kyle Pavone, has died at the age of 28.
“Today music lost another great with the passing of Kyle Pavone of We Came As Romans,” reads a statement from the band this morning. “Kyle’s tragic loss came too early in his life and those of his bandmates. All are devastated by his passing. We will miss his smiles, sincerity, his concern for others and his impressive musical talent.”
In lieu of flowers, the band will offer more information later this week on charity donations.
The band’s statement ended with the lyrics “Will I be remembered or will I be lost in loving eyes?” from their track “Promise Me” off their latest album Cold Like War.
