Kyle Pavone, vocalist for Troy-bred metalcore band We Came as Romans, has died, the band said in a statement released Saturday. 

Kyle Pavone performs at the Vans Warped Tour at the Palace of Auburn Hills in 2013.

"Today, music lost another great with the passing of Kyle Pavone of We Came as Romans," the statement read. 

"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 provide 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."


Messages and memorials flooded Twitter, where many wrote of the band's music helping them get through tough times in their lives: 

We Came as Romans was formed in 2005 by several friends who were classmates at Troy Athens High School. The band toured tirelessly and built a solid following, and landed a Top 10 album with 2013's "Tracing Back Roots," which debuted at No. 8 on Billboard's Top 200 albums chart. 

The band's most recent album, "Cold Like War," was released in 2017. 

A cause of death for Pavone, 28, has not been released. 

One week ago, Pavone tweeted, "Will i be remembered or will i be lost in loving eyes," a lyric from the song "Promise Me" from "Cold Like War."
