We Came as Romans - Golden (Official Music Video)

Their new album “Darkbloom” is out October 14th. Those who are struggling with mental health issues, there is a way out, there is hope.

Their music and message is much needed in today’s dark, cynical, and often times bleak sub-culture that seems to drive people’s interests. The music has an upbeat feel and the beats themselves are an attractive sound that’ll draw you in.… Continued →
