We Came As Romans have finally debuted the studio version of “Daggers“, a track they have been playing live for quite some time recently. “Daggers” acts as a brutal homage to their earlier days, the video features them sharing the stage with rising talent Zero 9:36, and the blend results in excitingly destructive anticipation for their upcoming album.
We Came As Romans described the process of creation for “Daggers“, commenting:
“Daggers” was the song on the record that was written, and rewritten, over and over again. It was a wild ride of us just trying to create a song that sounded unlike something we’ve done before – a new journey for the listener that they weren’t used to hearing from us. We couldn’t think of a better way to do that than to introduce an entire verse of Zero [9:16], and try to make a genre-connecting bridge.
Lyrically, “Daggers” is about that inner battle that we all go through – the talks you have with yourself about whether or not you’re good enough, smart enough, or just enough in general. The lyrics are not about conquering that battle, being able to emerge victorious and be sure about your self worth and your value as a person. With the acknowledgment that it’s not an easy task, that it can be a rage-fueled combat between the negativity in your mind and the place you want to be… we’ve decided to be ready for it and conquer the fight– We Came As Romans
We Came As Romans are currently on tour, supporting the 10th Anniversary of the release of their debut album, “To Plant a Seed”.
