Recovery Unplugged is saddened to report the sudden and tragic loss of Kyle Pavone, the voice of American metalcore band We Came as Romans. The band announced Pavone’s death today on social media. Though a cause has yet to be determined pending an autopsy, one thing is immediately evident: the metalcore genre, and music in general, has lost one of its most distinct, explosive and promising voices. Kyle Pavone joined We Came as Romans when he was just 18 and was pivotal in propelling the band to success. He was taken to a Michigan hospital on August 19th and died this morning.
At just 28 years old, Kyle Pavone undoubtedly had great things ahead of him both in and out of the music business. During his tenure in We Came as Romans, he recorded five records, including 2017’s Cold Like War. The band was set to begin at tour in support of Bullet for My Valentine this September. Tributes have been pouring out through social media from fans and other musicians. Recovery Unplugged sends our sincerest and most profound condolences to Pavone’s family, friends, bandmates and the legions of fans he leaves behind. We will post further updates as cause of death and other details unfold.
