Watch Metalcore Act We Came As Romans Shred "Tracing Back Roots" Live

One of the top-billed acts of metalcore's current high-tide wave is set to drop their first live DVD release. Michigan sextet We Came As Romans' Present, Future, and Past will come out on September 2 via Equal Vision Records, and you can now watch the very first full performance from the DVD for "Tracing Back Roots" above!

Filmed at the House of Blues Chicago in November 2013 during their Tracing Back Roots Tour (supporting the band's third LP of the same name), the performance of the title track makes for a high-energy shred session. Dual vocalists Kyle Pavone and Dave Stephens make their mark on the crowd with their tried-and-true screaming/singing combinations as mosh pits spring up throughout the song. 

While Tracing Back Roots as a whole is WCAR's most melodic album to date–it features a lot less screaming than their previous two releases–the title track is a complete barn-burner, and that fiery intensity shows up full-force in the performance. We're happy the band decided to give this recording the full DVD treatment rather than issue a live audio-only release, as the end result is a more intimate experience for those watching at home. 

Present, Future, and Past is available for pre-order in the Equal Vision webstore, and the band's upcoming tour with For Today, The Color Morale, Crossfaith and Palisades kicks off in mid-September.
