Of Virtue announce new album What Defines You; premiere new single “No Control”

Official press release:

Rising Michigan metal band Of Virtue will release their awaited new album, What Defines You, with SharpTone Records on May 24th. The band has revealed a brand-new single titled “No Control,” which is now streamable via a lyric video and on all major streaming services. The label has also launched a pre-order for the new record that can be found here. The band said of the single:

‘No Control’ was written from the perspective of someone who has never fit into any specific mold. Those nights we spend awake, wandering in our own thoughts considering what we can do to change the course of where we are headed and the realization that if we don’t do something, we are damned to repeat the same mistakes, staying in the same cycle of misery – only because we feel we have ‘No Control’.”

Of Virtue’s new record, What Defines You, further establishes the band as a one of Michigan’s finest metal bands to emerge in years. The band’s dynamic mix of hardcore, metal and rock along with their positive lyrics for the downtrodden and explosive live performances help separate them from the cluttered scene. Speaking of the effort, the group stated:

What Defines You is a testament to anyone who has been told to give up, been beaten down by life, for those who believe that they aren’t good enough, those who struggle to dream, or see beyond their own circumstances. With What Defines You we chose to tell ourselves that we will construct our own future, for better or for worse, through hard work, dedication, and learning from our past.”
