We Came As Romans Drummer Eric Choi Announces Exit From Band

We Came As Romans

Less than a week after kicking off their next chapter with an explosive new single, “Wasted Age”, metalcore titans We Came As Romans have announced that founding drummer Eric Choi has taken a walk from the (now-)quintet.

“After 10 amazing years with We Came as Romans,” he wrote in a statement, “it is time for me to move onto the next chapter of my life. It’s sad to see my time with WCAR come to an end, but I truly believe this is for the best. I wish nothing but the best for the guys and am excited to watch them continue to grow.

“To anyone and everyone who has made this last decade such an unforgettable, irreplaceable time of my life, I am forever grateful and hold the moments we shared very close to my heart. I’ve had music in the works for some time now and am excited to be sharing it with you all sometime next year. I’ll be available for lessons for those who are interested.”

Along with offering personalised drum lessons (hit him up via EricChoiDrums@gmail.com), Choi has assured fans that his career in music is far from over, hinting at a new release in the not-to-distant future.

WCAR themselves have also released a statement, saying, “We’ve thoroughly enjoyed the 10 years we’ve spent with Eric in this band and the countless memories we’ve made together. He is an extremely talented musician and a great person, but life happens and we’re all torn in different ways as we grow older.

“Eric has chose to pursue a different future than we have, and as someone we respect and deeply care for, we need to allow him to live his life. The band will continue on and Eric will be successful in whatever he chooses to do and we only wish him the best.”
