We regret to report that Kyle Pavone, co-vocalist for Michigan based metalcore outfit We Came As Romans, tragically passed away yesterday (August 25th 2018) at the age of 28.

The news of his untimely passing was confirmed in a post made by the band on their social media accounts, through which they provided the following statement.

“Today music lost another great with the passing of Kyle Pavone of We Came as Romans. Kyle’™s tragic loss came too early in his life and those of his bandmates. All are devastated by his passing. We will miss his smiles, his sincerity, his concern for others, and his impressive musical talent. In lieu of flowers, we will be providing information regarding charity donations this coming week. The family and the band wish to thank their fans and the music community for all of their love and support as they navigate their grief.

‘Will I Be Remembered or Will I Be Lost in Loving Eyes?'”

The closing line of the band’s statement is a lyric taken from their song ‘Promise Me’, and is also one of final tweets that Pavone sent before his passing.

At the time of writing, it is uncertain as to what was the cause of Kyle Pavone‘s death, though TMZ are reporting (here) that close sources state he was “transported to a Michigan hospital on August 19 and pronounced dead Saturday morning.”

Pavone joined We Came As Romans a decade ago back in 2008, and featured on all five of their studio albums, the latest being last year’s ‘Cold Like War’.

He also featured ‘Dreams’, the second of their two 2008 self-released EPs.

Since his death, many other peers, musicians, friends, and fans in the community have shared their condolences.

We here at DEAD PRESS! offer our deepest condolences and sympathies to Kyle Pavone‘s family, friends, bandmates, and loved ones at this incredibly difficult time.
