Kyle Pavone, vocalist for the rock band We Came as Romans, has died at 28.

No cause of death has yet been announced. The news was confirmed via the band’s socials where they released an official 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?”

Pavone joined We Came as Romans in 2008. He is featured on all five of the band’s full-length albums. Aside from being a vocalist, he offered keyboard synthesizer duties as well. His voice gave the band a sound all their own.

Drummer David Puckett took to Twitter earlier today (Aug. 26) for a series of tweets:

Puckett also shared a message on Instagram shortly after the news broke yesterday (Aug. 25).

Co-vocalist Dave Stephens has remained silent on the matter with the exception of sharing a picture of himself and Pavone.


I will love you forever and I miss you already, brother.
