OF VIRTUE SIGN TO SHARPTONE RECORDS AND UNLEASH NEW SINGLE SUFFER.
Another great catch. SharpTone Records reveals its latest signing, it’s Michigan metalcore outfit OF VIRTUE debuting their brand new single SUFFER on January 11th, 2019.
Of Virtue are Tyler Ennis, Damon Tate, Michael Valadez, Jon Fox and Kyle Pruehs. They formed in Lansing, Michigan in 2009 and debuted with To Breathe Again EP followed up by full-length Heartsounds in 2011. In 2012 they brought out a limited released EP called Learn/Love and a further studio album in 2015, under the name of Salvation, a staple record for the band’s signature sound. Since then, Of Virtue have released stand-alone singles Ghost Town, Surrounded, Torn Apart until the day has arrived.
Known for their message of positivity and inspiration, Of Virtue toured relentlessly performing in the majority of states in the Continental US and 12 European countries, sharing the stage with bands ranging from Bring Me the Horizon, Architects, Smash Your Enemies, Lorna Shore to For The Fallen Dreams, Born Of Osiris, Ghost key, Obey The Brave, The Royal and more.
Of Virtue is embarking on a headlining tour to the East Coast with fellow label mates Kingsmen and Blessing A Curse of Smartpunk Records across February 2019, dates available below.
OF VIRTUE. SUFFER.
SUFFER is a taste of punching and charming metalcore catalyzed by a flawless formula of heaviness and catchiness. Driven by a heavy stomp and pulsating beat, the song is a wise combination of blistering hooks and driving melody in the backdrop. Huge drop-tuned riffs and a punchy drums pattern sets up the rhythmic frame combining very thick and intense bass lines. I am mesmerized by the harsh vocals and full bodied tone of the clean vocals having a true allure in delivering expressivity as they dive into a sing along chorus. Sick riffs, infectious groove and plenty of catchiness. Don’t you dare listen without headbanging!
