This week's Metro Times cover dudes We Came As Romans charted impressively high on several Billboard charts this week with their debut full-length, To Plant A Seed. Among the most impressive, the band has claimed the No. 2 spot on the New Alternative Artist chart, No. 6 on the Heatseekers chart, and even cracked the highly coveted Billboard Top 200, placing at No. 175.

The band concludes their current headlining tour on November 18th, after which they will join I See Stars for a four-week full U.S. trek, ending in Grand Rapids on December 19th. There will also be a Mt. Pleasant show on the 25th of this month. As noted in our story, the band plans to maintain their rigorous touring schedule throughout 2010. Congratulations to a hard-working crew.
