We Came As Romans will release their much-anticipated fifth album Cold Like War tomorrow, October 20. The band has teamed up with Alternative Press to premiere the new video for "Foreign Fire," along with an in-depth interview. It is the first deep dive into the band's mindset and process for Cold Like War.
The video focuses on both singers sitting at a couch, each of them bearing their emotions to the camera. The duo's sing-scream dynamic is on full display in this format, their voices interweaving and separating in an instance. Both singers are playing chess against the embodiment of death, fighting for what looks like their loved ones in the background.
“['Foreign Fire'] is actually my favorite track,” singer Joshua Moore says to AP, who premiered the video. “It’s probably the most connected I’ve felt to a song in a really, really long time. Writing the lyrics to that song was therapeutic but was really hard. The idea behind it is us being gone so much and for so long. We’ve been doing the band for 12 years now. There’s a lot that we miss out on at home with our family, with our friends, with our girlfriends… Frankly, it sucks. It’s not one of the more rewarding things you get for being in a band. Sometimes I feel like at the end of the day we’re the story of the ones that our family loves. I’m the story of my mom’s son or the story of ‘Uncle Josh,’ but I’m not actually there to make those memories anymore because I’m out doing this.”
