Progression, or more generally, change, is a constant in music; in order to adapt and survive, you must grow and develop – and no band knows that more than midwestern metal act OF VIRTUE !
What began as a humble, promising metalcore act born from the blistering chill and barren fields of mid-Michigan has erupted into an internationally recognized and critically acclaimed alternative powerhouse. Playing this year’s UK Tech Fest, Summer Breeze, Fallen Fortress, 6K Fest and Upheaval festival and accruing a staggering 3,5 million plus streams on their new SINNER EP on Spotify alone, Of Virtue’s growth is nothing short of jaw dropping.
Today, Of Virtue serve their blistering new single ‚A.N.X.I.E.T.Y.‘ via Arising Empire!
Produced by Carson Slovak & Grant McFarland (August Burns Red, Polaris, Hollow Front), additional production by Chris Shifflett, mixed and mastered by Dan Braunstein, known for his work for Spiritbox, Dayseeker, Volumes – this heavy new material by modern metal experience Of Virtue hits you straight in the face.
„This song is about being uncomfortable in your own skin and being so far in your own head that you allow outside factors to break you down. While you may know you need to change, not knowing how, not wanting to ask for help, not allowing yourself to be vulnerable to change – all due to the fear of the unknown, the anxiety – that’s what paralyzes us. This all isn’t talked about enough because of guilt or shame. The last few years have been very difficult for a lot of people, including us, for this reason – so we decided to speak up in case anyone felt the same way.“ – Tyler (vocals)
