Although recorded with the same producer, there is still an intentional difference between the two albums. We Came As Romans didn't let the fact that they are only a six-piece hold them back from achieving a more symphonic sound on To Plant A Seed. "I played the trombone from Elementary school until I graduated high school and I always took the sound of a symphonic band or an orchestra with me," explains Moore of their decision to add orchestral elements to the album such as the violins, brass, and piano interlaced throughout the album's dynamic layers.
Not unlike the EP, the lyrics on To Plant A Seed reflect We Came As Romans' goal of spreading a positive message through their music. The band hopes, "when people hear the album, they might not change the way they think or the way they act right now, but hopefully we've planted that 'seed', that thought of love, and it can grow."
The theme of the album is carried through to the artwork. Painted by acclaimed artist Paul Romano (Mastodon, Chiodos), the album cover depicts a "very innocent looking boy in which the 'seed' has been planted in his mind and it grows to his heart, out of his palms and becomes branches," describes Moore.

"I always had a thing for heavy/electronically driven music" Austin Thornton (Ex: drummer from Of Machines) explains. "That's the basis that we built WIM around although it's only semi-represented in our current available tracks, our new material will truly highlight that "metal/electrical" sound we've came to acquire over time, so I'd expect nothing less then a heavier/melodic side of us, for sure hah no joke! "
Starting to tour in early/late July, with the drive behind them this "experimental melodic-core" band will be sure to stand against any mountain put in front of them.
So keep and eye and ear out, only to be expecting new things around every corner!
On October 5th the highly anticipated full length Geeving was released and debuted at #27 on Billboard. The band launched the record with a coast-to-coast headline tour of Canada, following that tour with another full US tour supporting Miss May I.
With a 3rd video down the pipe for the title track "Geeving", Abandon All Ships show no signs of slowing down in 2011.
The band hails from Cincinnati, and has been touring and selling records DIY for a great part of their early career. The band's hard work ethic got them many sponsor/endorsement deals that even national signed bands would be competing for. The band recently decided on a label to get behind their first full-length release and will be announcing it very shortly.
They have toured DIY independently for years and played dates with Warped Tour, Taste Of Chaos, Silverstein, We Came As Romans, Saosin, Papa Roach, I See Stars, Attack Attack!, Asking Alexandria, and many more. Their Infectious melodies and lyrics keep you wanting more, but they bring enough strength to their live performance and breakdowns to leave even the heaviest of fans satisfied.
The Hampton, VA-based band is currently in San Diego, CA recording their debut full-length album at Lambesis Studios, with Joshua Travis also serving as producer. Glass Cloud will release the full-length album in late Spring/early Summer 2012 through Equal Vision Records.
Musically, Glass Cloud offers a sense of controlled chaos fueled by Roush's deep, ferocious growls and distinct, gritty cleans. Travis' phenomenal guitarwork and ability to constantly surprise listeners stands out as he displays the perfect balance between energetic, driving intricacies and calmer progressions that carry a dark, eerie tone. Sykes and Hasty, graduates of Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA, rule the rhythm section contributing unique cadences and swinging, jazzy grooves interlaced with softer symphonic touches. Glass Cloud shines as the members deliver some of their heaviest and most technical compositions to date.
Excitement and enthusiasm simply radiates out of the band as they discuss working together in the studio and developing a sound that is all their own. "The collective musicianship and talent level in this band is unbelievable," explains Travis. "…and to top it off, the guys are all down-to-earth people too. Working on this record has been a lot of fun. We are trying to introduce something organic and ambient into heavy music. Not the typical breakdown heavy, but darker chords upon layers and layers."
Roush also boasts unabashedly about the remarkable caliber of musical proficiency within the band, and specifically about the creative connection between himself and Travis stating, "From the moment he became involved in this band, he was sending me fully finished tracks left and right, songs that were blowing my mind. Musically, Josh is a beast…the dude is a musical machine. We meshed so well, right from the start, making tracks that had no limits to them. I couldn't have asked for a better and more prolific guitarist to accompany me in this new musical endeavor. And with Josh being the producer of the debut Glass Cloud record, we know that we are making the exact album that we want to make."
"We have been working intensely in the studio, but it will definitely pay off when we introduce something new and fresh to the scene," Travis concludes. "I don't think I could be more excited about a project." Glass Cloud will spend 2012 on the road supporting their forthcoming album, with tour dates to be announced soon.
