Virtue reaches out and hopes to be a voice in musical form. Using a combination of soaring melodies and heavy-hearted screams the band strives to welcome listeners attempting to answer a fundamental question: “What Defines You?”
Formed in Lansing, Michigan in 2009 with the concept of bringing positivity to their listeners, Of Virtue came out strong with their 2009 EP “To Breathe Again”. It was this which catapulted them into the ears of many of listeners eager for something new, something real. Knowing that they had captured the attention of a fan-base within an exhausted genre, their first full album, “Heartsounds” helped define a message of inspiring people across the globe to find their passion through Of Virtue’s music. The band followed in 2012 with “Learn/Love”, a limited release EP, which sold out immediately. In 2015, Of Virtue added more power to their sound via “Salvation”, an album which has grown to be a staple for the band’s sound. After introducing Tyler Ennis as the new vocalist in 2017, the band released a stand-alone single, “Ghost Town,” completely different from anything they’d done before. It was then when the band began their journey towards the new album, “What Defines You”.
Of Virtue continues touring constantly to bring its sound to as many people live as possible. They have performed all across the Continental U.S, traversing Europe, and recently touring Asia. They plan to keep bringing their music as far as their passports allow. The band has performed at several major heavy music festivals, domestically and abroad including Warped Tour, Cornerstone, JAMboree, Bled Fest, UK Tech Fest, Fajtfest, and Rockstadt Extreme. Hot Topic awarded them the Band Grant grand prize in 2010 on the Earn It Yourself tour which led to their addition to the Kevin Says Stage at Warped Tour Detroit in 2011. Of Virtue have built a reputation following their performances supporting artists such as Bring Me The Horizon, Of Mice and Men, Every Time I Die, The Ghost Inside, Architects, and many more.
