We Came As Romans plans to live on in the wake of vocalist Kyle Pavone's death.
Dave Stephens, the Troy-formed rock band's other lead singer, shared a video on the band's Facebook page announcing WCAR's future plans. "We've decided that the best course of action for the band is to do the (upcoming) Bullet for My Valentine tour," Stephens says in the clip. "We feel like this honors Kyle, and we can talk about...the Kyle Pavone Foundation and carry on doing what he would've wanted us to do, and (for) us be together on stage, playing music together with our fans."
Stephens added that, "We will not be replacing Kyle. We will be continuing on (with) the five of us, honoring his life for the next few weeks while we're on tour."
WCAR has shows booked in Iowa and Wisconsin this weekend before the tour with Wales' Bullet For My Valentine kicks off Sept. 18 in St. Louis. The trek includes an Oct. 7 home town stop at the Fillmore Detroit.
Pavone, a graduate of Birmingham Seaholm High School, died on Aug. 25 at the age of 28 from a drug overdose, six days after being admitted to the hospital. No details have been revealed yet about the Kyle Pavone Foundation, but WCAR did announce there would be "a public event in early October at the Fillmore Detroit" to honor Pavone.
