After the tragic passing of We Came As Roman's co-vocalist Kyle Pavone just over two weeks ago, the band have announced that they will continue on into the future as a five-piece without replacing Kyle.
The band had scheduled tour dates with Bullet For My Valentine in the US starting next week, and in a new video with vocalist Dave Stephens, he addressed the band's future plans:
“The last few weeks Kyle‘s family, his fans, his friends, and the five of us have been expericing a very wide range of emotions, and for us it’s been the most difficult time of our lives. Through this we’ve been trying to be very honest with each other and open about how we’re feeling and grieving.
So, through all this we’ve decided that the best course of action for the band is to do the Bullet For My Valentine tour. We feel like this honors Kyle, and we can talk about his foundation, the Kyle Pavone Foundation, and carry on doing what he would have wanted us to do and us be together on stage, playing music together, with our fans.
We will not be replacing Kyle. We’ll be continuing on the five of us, and honoring his life for the next few weeks while we’re on tour.” [Transcription via ThePRP]
