Members of WE CAME AS ROMANS have commented further on the death of their singer Kyle Pavone.
According to TMZ, the 28-year-old frontman was transported to a Michigan hospital last Sunday (August 19) and pronounced dead six days later (Saturday, August 25).
A cause of death for Pavone is pending a toxicology report.
Drummer David Puckett took to Twitter earlier today (August 26) to write: “None of us were ready to say goodbye. But I know that Kyle is happy right now, because the entire world came together with the unfortunate news. Tens of thousands of people all over the world supporting one another, encouraging each other and sharing stories together.”
He continued: “Kyle loved bringing people together, however he could- whether that was by being on stage, or by being he most ridiculous person in a room making everyone laugh. He loved creating moments for everyone to share, and he would be ecstatic to see us all supporting each other like the big family that we are. Thank you to everyone who has been reaching out to us and sharing your stories with us. Love you all.”
WE CAME AS ROMANS co-vocalist Dave Stephens shared a picture of him and Pavone, along with the caption: “I will love you forever and I miss you already, brother.” Similar messages were posted on Instagram by guitarists Joshua Moore and Lou Cotton, as well as bassist Andy Glass.
WE CAME AS ROMANS‘ fifth album, “Cold Like War”, was released last October through SharpTone Records.
A week before his death, Pavone tweeted, “Will i be remembered or will i be lost in loving eyes,” a lyric from the song “Promise Me” from “Cold Like War”.
Pavone joined WE CAME AS ROMANS in 2008 as vocalist and keyboardist and appeared on all five of the band’s albums. Their 2013 LP, “Tracing Back Roots”, peaked at No. 8 on the Billboard 200 chart.
WE CAME AS ROMANS was scheduled to embark on a U.S. tour in September as the support act for BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE.
