We Came As Romans Covers The Wanted's 'Glad You Came': Video Premiere
Metalcore group We Came As Romans isn't exactly known for its boy band covers, but during its recent shows and for the upcoming live DVD Present, Future, and Past, the band decided to have some fun with The Wanted's biggest chart hit, "Glad You Came." Watch the unlikely cover below, premiering exclusively on Billboard.com:
"We had a lot of fun creating this cover, and playing it live is always amazing," says vocalist Dave Stephens. "Our fans really seem to love it and sing it loudly with us every night. It was also great to be able to record it with our good friend Nick Sampson. It was an all around awesome experience and were so happy with how everything came out!"
"Glad You Came" was a Top 10 hit for The Wanted back in 2012, and while We Came As Romans have never had a big hit on the Hot 100 chart, the post-hardcore group has enjoyed considerable success since forming in 2005. Its latest album, Tracing Back Roots, was issued last year and has sold 72,000 copies to date, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
Following performances at the Reading and Leeds Festivals in the U.K. over the weekend, We Came As Romans will head to Riot Fest on Sept. 12 and the Sunset Strip Music Festival on Sept. 21. Their Present, Future, and Past DVD will be released on Sept. 2.
