Michigan’s Of Virtue have released the video for new single “True Colors,” the latest track off their upcoming album Omen, out September 29 via Arising Empire.
Guitar and vocalist Damon Tate comments, “The wise Maya Angelou said, ‘When people show you who they are, believe them the first time.’ This is also true of drug addiction. This disease can wear many faces and often times, we choose to ignore the obvious red flags that are right in front of us. Because of our own struggles, insecurities or reasons for wanting to drown out the pain, we allow these things to have agency over our actions and our way of life, contributing to the vicious cycle that is so hard to break. It can be easy to blame the vice or behaviors for the misery that is brought in our lives. ‘True Colors’ is also indicative of another hard truth: What you consume, what/who you believe you are…can become your new reality and ‘true’ self.”
Omen will be available in limited colored vinyl and CD, along with unique merch options at the Arising Empire online shop, Impericon, and band shop. Pre-order Omenhere.
Of Virtue combinse an eclectic taste for the melodic, catchy, and ethereal with a foundation seeping with brooding, thick guitars, thanks to guitarists Damon Tate and Mike Valadez, along with a penchant for multi-faceted vocal tonalities shared by vocalists Tyler Ennis and 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 have cemented themselves a diverse and engaging act, drawing influence from all types and styles of music to create something their own. With, 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.
