We Came As Romans Announce Darkbloom Australian Tour With Invent Animate
It’s been over seven years since their last visit, but Michigan metalcore monsters We Came As Romans are pleased to announced their Australian return in August on the Darkbloom Tour, with special guests and first time visitors, Invent Animate (US). Tickets on sale tomorrow at 10am local time via Destroy All Lines.
The tour begins on Tuesday August 29 at Lion Arts Factory in Adelaide, travelling to Sydney’s Liberty Hall on Thursday August 31, The Croxton in Melbourne on Friday September 1 and will come to a close at Brisbane’s Princess Theatre on Saturday September 2.
We Came As Romans make the trip down under to celebrate their fifth studio album, Darkbloom, released last October. Darkbloom is a bright light in the darkness, honouring the legacy of their brother and fallen bandmate, co-vocalist and keyboardist Kyle Pavone. The album harnesses the strength of every WCAR album before it, ushering in an ambitious, courageous new era.
We Came As Romans’ ascent was quick and assured, catapulting the band, who met as teens, into the hearts of diehard fans immersed in the metalcore, post-hardcore, and Warped Tour subculture. Their hook-filled heavy music carried an uplifting message and connects with even greater urgency live. The increasingly diverse catalog of metallic might, melodic strength, and electronic atmosphere soars in clubs, theaters, and fests.
Much to fans delight, progressive metalcore quartet Invent Animate are making their first ever trip to Australia to debut their impassioned live show alongside We Came As Romans on the Darkbloom Tour. Amid a generation gripped by loneliness, fear, and a desperate concern for the state of the world, Invent Animate grab fans by the hand and choose to walk with them.
There’s a sense of duty among the band to bare their own pain and tragedy for their listeners, indeed creating a safe, familiar place for listeners to process their own. It’s this deeply empathic and concerned approach to their output that sets Invent Animate apart, and has seen the band develop a close knit, cult-like following over their 10 years together.
Stationed across Texas, Colorado and Sweden following Marcus Vik’s recruitment as vocalist in 2019, Invent Animate are now in prime position to break new ground with their signing to UNFD, who joined the team for the release of their compelling March full-length, Heavener.
Catch two pioneers of modern metalcore tear through Australia on the Darkbloom Tour. Tickets on sale tomorrow, Friday May 12, at 10am local time via Destroy All Lines.
