We Came As Romans have released a destructive new track “Daggers”. The track also features a hard and heavy verse from Zero 9:36.
The band comments: "'Daggers' was the song on the record that was written, and rewritten, over and over again. It was a wild ride of us just trying to create a song that sounded unlike something we've done before — a new journey for the listener that they weren't used to hearing from us. We couldn't think of a better way to do that than to introduce an entire verse of Zero, and try to make a genre-connecting bridge.
Lyrically, 'Daggers' is about that inner battle that we all go through — the talks you have with yourself about whether or not you're good enough, smart enough, or just enough in general. The lyrics are about conquering that battle, being able to emerge victorious and be sure about your self worth and your value as a person. With the acknowledgement that it's not an easy task, that it can be a rage-fueled combat between the negativity in your mind and the place you want to be... we've decided to be ready for it and conquer the fight."
We Came As Romans continues to get heavier with each release this year. They have released two other tracks in 2021: "Black Hole," featuring Beartooth's Caleb Shomo, as well as the video for "Darkbloom" which both have showcased the band digging in on a heavier sound. “Daggers” catapultes them further into the heaviest side of metalcore, opening with an isolated vocal growl, then an absolutely manic drop. This track is entirely unforgiving and relentless - with a furious spit of rap vocals that are just as aggressive as the metal moments.
The band just wrapped its successful To Plant a Seed anniversary tour last week, which sold over 35,000 tickets, and will return with more new music and touring 2022. But for now — “Daggers” out!
