WE CAME AS ROMANS Releases Video For 'Lost In The Moment'

WE CAME AS ROMANS Releases Video For 'Lost In The Moment'

“Lost In The Moment”, the new video from the Michigan post-hardcore outfit WE CAME AS ROMANS, can be seen below. The song is taken from the band’s fifth album, “Cold Like War”, which will be released on October 20 through SharpTone Records.

According to a press release, the disc represents adversity — in all of its various forms. It is a thrilling, energetic and immensely catchy compendium of songs that run the full gambit of emotion — aggression to sorrow, love to hate — to capture the fullest extent of the conflict and turmoil WE CAME AS ROMANS endured to make it to this point in their careers and their lives.

‘Cold Like War’ is about struggle, those trials,” says guitarist and songwriter Joshua Moore. “They can turn us towards each other, towards those we love, towards those who have supported us. Because the last two years to us have felt like this giant war — an internal war — to figure out the right path for our band… to figure out how to stay together and be happy again.”

“Cold Like War” track listing:

01. Vultures With Clipped Wings
02. Cold Like War
03. Two Hands
04. Lost In The Moment
05. Foreign Fire
06. Wasted Age
07. Encoder
08. If There’s Something To See (feat. Eric Vanlerberghe from I PREVAIL)
09. Promise Me
10. Learning To Survive

BILLY CORGAN Says Reunion Of Original SMASHING PUMPKINS Lineup 'Has Been Knocked About'

BILLY CORGAN Says Reunion Of Original SMASHING PUMPKINS Lineup 'Has Been Knocked About'

SMASHING PUMPKINS founding member and main songwriter Billy Corgan has hinted at a reunion of the band’s original lineup.

Corgan has been touring under the SMASHING PUMPKINS name for several years with a newer lineup of musicians, although drummer Jimmy Chamberlin rejoined the band two years ago.

More significantly, Corgan confirmed last year that he had repaired his friendship with original bassist D’Arcy Wretzky, after not speaking for nearly two decades. With Chamberlin back in the band already and guitarist James Iha joining them onstage for the first time in sixteen years in early 2016, a reunion of the group’s original lineup appears to be imminent.

“[A reunion tour] has been knocked about,” Corgan tells Rolling Stone. “There’s certainly gears that turn and things get waved around, but until it’s inked, I’m in the dark as much as anybody … But I’ll say this and I mean it: If we never play a note together again, that’s okay. I’m way, way more interested in the fact that we have peace with each other. I’ve reached the point in my life where I’m not in a hurry to get to anything. If it’s there, great. If it’s not, cool.”

Corgan is happy to have reconnected with his former bandmates on a personal level. “Communicating solely through the fog of media is obviously not the best way to communicate in the era of fake news,” Corgan says. “Often times I would try to explain to people that the issues were more familial than they were musical. People just don’t believe you. Maybe because they don’t want to since it’s not as interesting.”

He attributes the original band’s split to the fact that “we were in a pressure cooker for thirteen, fourteen years. We were literally together almost non-stop for a long time,” he says. “We did a lot of work and we put ourselves through some crazy shit. When the family thing broke, it was one of those things like, ‘Hey, have you talked to your cousin?’ ‘Eh, I love him, but you know, whatever.’ So it was like that for a long time, and now that that’s over, and the family thing is resolved, it’s awesome.”

The original SMASHING PUMPKINS lineup last played together on April 24, 1999 in Los Angeles.

Corgan‘s new, Rick Rubin-produced solo album “Ogilala”, is due out October 13 via BMG.
