“”Alone” is a song about how tiring it can be to constantly hear what people want you to be and never want to hear from you about what you want to be, or better yet, just support you. The song itself is a dichotomy, a conversation between two people. Person A is telling the Person B how they believe they should be, while Person B is saying maybe he’s better off without Person A … Without their “advice”, or baggage. How will we ever know who WE are, what OUR accomplishments are – if we’re constantly living for others, yet we’re unsatisfied? That’s what “Alone” is about!” – Tyler, Of Virtue, (vocalist)
OF VIRTUE just wrapped up a European tour with THE WORD ALIVE and will be returning home, stateside with plans to tour North America. The band has a performance scheduled for Hope For The Quad Cities Fest 2k19 in Moline, IL on July 27th and additional dates to be announced soon.
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. 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 a major positive response. After this the band followed with their breakthrough singles “Surrounded,” “Torn Apart” and “Suffer.”
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.
OF VIRTUE is Tyler Ennis (Vocalist), Damon Tate (Guitarist), Michael Valadez (Guitarist), Jon Fox (Bassist), and Kyle Pruehs (Drummer).
