Of Virtue
Of Virtue
For all those who have been longing for a way to express their innermost hidden fears, secrets, and desires - Of 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. This release led to extensive live performances nationwide with bands ranging from Bring Me the Horizon and Architects to Smash Your Enemies and Lorna Shore. The band followed in 2012 with “Learn/Love”, a limited release EP, which sold out almost immediately. In 2015, Of Virtue added more power to their sound via the release, “Salvation”, an album which has grown to be a staple for the band's sound. Later in 2017, the band released a stand-alone single, “Ghost Town,” and quickly added it to their live show only to be met with.

Of Virtue continues touring constantly to bring its sound to as many people live as possible. They have performed in the majority of states in the Continental U.S, in 12 countries in Europe and beyond. They have sold music and merchandise to over 50 countries across 6 continents. They have played several major heavy music festivals including Warped Tour, Cornerstone, JAMboree, Bled Fest, and Rockapalooza. Hot Topic awarded them the Band Grand prize in 2010 and the Earn It Yourself tour, which put them on the Kevin Says Stage at Warped Tour Detroit in 2011. Of Virtue have built a reputation an unmatched act supporting such bands Bring Me The Horizon, Of Mice and Men, Every Time I Die, The Ghost Inside, For Today, Architects, and many others. The band has no plans to stop or slow down soon, on the contrary.​
