OF VIRTUE - Release New Single "Cut Me Open" From Upcoming Album "Omen"

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.

Today, Of Virtue have released 'Cut Me Open', their next banger off their upcoming album! Introducing »Omen«, their most ambitious and heartfelt project to date. This album represents a journey of artistic growth, experimentation, and soul-searching. Including the SINNER EP together with eight additional tracks in total, this brand new album is all about soaring heavy anthems to fierce ballads.

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.

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.
