new album „Omen“ is out Sep 29 via Arising Empire
Midwestern metal act OF VIRTUE have released their brand new single and music video for ‚Holy‚ taken from their upcoming full-length album »Omen«, due 29th September via Arising Empire.
On the new track, the band comment:
„‚I wrote „Holy“ after a relationship which meant a lot to me ended. It was difficult, I wanted to apologize for who I was and „Holy“ is how I made my best attempt. All in all, „Holy“ is about holding yourself accountable and realizing that it’s possible that you were the reason why something, in this case my relationship, didn’t work out the way we had wanted it to.“ – Tyler (vocals)
Set for September 29th, »Omen« will be available in limited colored vinyls and CD, together with unique merch options at the Arising Empire online shop, Impericon & band shop.
„Three years in the making and feeling as if it’s the most significant one in our timeline thus far, this album was by far the most difficult to create in many more ways than one and one of the most emotional experience for us. Hope that it helps you through your time of need, the way it did us.“

Progression, or more generally, change, is a constant in music; in order to adapt and survive, you must grow and develop—no band knows this as much as Michigan heavy music act Of Virtue.
Born from the blistering cold, barren fields of Michigan and erupting into an internationally recognized and critically acclaimed alternative powerhouse, Of Virtue’s growth is nothing short of jaw dropping. Whether it’s having shared their music with fans in over 30 countries across the globe, amassing a multitude of Billboard charting positions, gaining Top 50 Mediabase radio play slots, having over 20 million total streams or beyond—Of Virtue is always looking forward to change and progress, to evolve and grow.
The band combine an eclectic taste for the melodic, catchy and ethereal with a foundation seeping with brooding, thick guitars thanks to guitarists Damon Tate & Mike Valadez along with a penchant for multifaceted vocal tonalities shared by vocalists Tyler Ennis & Damon Tate. All of this is brought together by the monstrous rhythm section featuring Ryan Trinh on drums. With this lineup at their disposal, Of Virtue has cemented themselves a diverse and engaging act drawing influence from all types and styles of music to create something that is truly their own.
With their next record, »Omen«, on the way they have even further expanded on what makes them who they are, and by doing so they bring a warning—tread lightly and base today on yesterday or you may not get to tomorrow.
