Normally we give you a blog from our road crew on their perspective of the tour, but this one is a little different. We Came As Romans is currently on tour with our great friends in Alesana and the guitarist Lou Cotton is doing something awesome because of our great road crew: he is going vegetarian. In order to get his perspective on it, we asked him to blog about it. Here is Lou in his own words:

My name is Lou Cotton, I play guitar in We Came As Romans. I am currently on “The Emptiness” tour with Alesana, A Skylit Drive, Of Mice and Men and The Word Alive. Sponsoring this tour, and traveling with is an amazing organization named peta2.
On the first day of tour, I talked to some of the peta2 people about what they do, and what they stand for, and I’ve been interested ever since. They explained to me about animal cruelty and showed me some videos of innocent animals being beaten to death. Those images stuck in my mind, and I can’t even look eating meat the same way.
The thought of becoming vegetarian had never really crossed my mind up until a few days ago when I decided to give vegetarianism a try. I’ve always loved animals, in fact, I remember making my mom stop on the side of the highway to save a lost dog when I was younger. The peta2 people are very supportive of me and I plan on spreading the message that they spread to me.
Currently, we’re about two weeks into the tour. I’m going to be sharing my story with you guys and updating you on my progress every few days. If anyone has any good veg recipes, or knows of any good places to eat, please let me know. Also please come check out “The Emptiness” Tour! Hope to talk to you at a show! :)
Hey readers! Help Lou out and give him some advice on good food to eat and other tips! Visit their MySpace or leave comments here, we will be sure to pass them onto Lou!

    I have been a vegetarian since birth.
    Recently I bought Oliver Sykes’ (Bring Me The Horizon) “Meat Sucks” shirt.
    I think being a vegetarian is the way I was born to be.

    Lou should get the Peta College Cookbook: lots of yummy recipes and all really quick and easy to make (which is what you need if you’re on tour right now).

    My favorite veg dish is ratatouille. Good stuff, but takes some time to make it right.
    Since you are new to this vegitarian thing, make sure you get some info about nutrition from the PETA2 guys. You don’t want to end up having health complications later on down the road.

I’m an only child. 8. I knit. 9. I like to press flowers. 10. I like to shrink potato chip bags. I have a tattoo on my wrist that says peace in braille. I feel like I should've been a teen in the 60’s-70’s. I have rainbow gauges in my ears. I’m FTM transgender but only identify as a gay male. I will write to anybody! I love fast food, glass blowing, making solar sensitive paper prints, ceramics, making friendship bracelets, tie dying, decorating my room, shopping online and off (but mostly online), cuddling with my Cockapoo named Mickey,eating candy, making things, fashion, & going to the mall. I can’t cook to save my life. I enjoy Netflix, crafts, & making people laugh, I am generous and enjoy Oldies. Green is my favourite colour. I hate the colour orange. Halloween is my favourite holiday. I’m addicted to playing Kardashian on my Ipod and using Instagram. I want to travel a ton one day, learn German, drive and lifeguard, and be an elementary school art teacher. I collect international stamps, coins, postcards, Betty and Veronica Archie Comics, kawaii stuff, cameos, *stickers*, and trinkets (I pick things off the ground, I’m a klepto like that). I write in a diary everyday. I hate candy corn. I have two cactus plants. I have Facebook, Snapchat, Tumblr and Instagram, so HMU if you want my usernames. I believe loosely in karma, fate, kismet, déjà vu, reincarnation, dreams, destiny & fate. I love for stores: Etsy, Hot Topic, Francesca's, & Claire’s. People say I look like Brenton Thwaites.

"It’s all okay in the end. If it’s not okay, it’s not the end." "And in the end, the love you take, is equal to the love you make." -Paul McCartney Looking for: • Penpal • Art Pals • Package Pals • Snail Mail I send small gifts, and even surprise you when I’m thinking of you. **I ask that your age is 18-23.** No country requirements, I enjoy using stamps lol. What I expect from a pen pal is LGBTQA respect and a consistency to correspondence. But I seriously love meeting new people with different interests and writing to them.
