We. Are. Six!

Perhaps second only to the SG50 fanfare this year, the biggest birthday bash we’re most looking forward to here at Spin or Bin Music is of course, our own!

2015 might still be a decade away from the site’s sweet sixteen and though 6 isn’t a multiple of five, it’s always exciting to count the candles. Fads fade away and Zayn Malik is no longer part of in 1D anymore, yet one thing has stood the test of time – YOUR unwavering support!

As an ever-evolving motley crew united solely through our pure love for music, it is the relentless stream of tweets, hits and the occasional stinging comment that spur us on to better ourselves and present the most relevant news while trustily inserting a few worded opinions of our own.

Truly, without you, there is no Spin or Bin Music. And that is why we're rewarding the most deserving of fans the best we can give them. So read on to find out what YOU might be winning!

We Came as Romans is a post-hardcore group out of Troy, Michigan that was formed in 2005 when they were seniors in high school.  After several lineup changes, they released their debut album, To Plant a Seed, in 2009 to solid reviews. Featuring thematic, synth-filled choruses along with their heavy vocal screams, WCAR was able to create a unique sound and quickly carved out a healthy fan base, especially among the younger crowd. The band's relentless touring to support this album (alongside acts such as Asking Alexandria, Parkway Drive, Of Mice and Men, and more) brought them closer to fans and increased their popularity.

In support of their latest album Tracing Back Roots, WCAR is hitting the road again with a pit stop at our sunny shores.

Concert details:

       We Came As Romans: Tracing Back Roots Tour
       Date: May 20, 2015
