Produced by Howard Benson (Papa Roach, Three Doors Down), Vices and Virtues expresses Art of Dying’s energy and vitality with a blend of urgent, blaring guitar rhythms, atmospheric and transcendent counter melodies, and vocal harmonies that complement the heaviness of the music. Uptempo songs like “Die Trying” and “Straight Across my Mind” reverberate with the triumphant spirit of a raised fist, while tracks such as the acoustic-based “I Will Be There,” “Best I Can,” and “Raining” (which features guest vocals by Three Days Grace frontman Adam Gontier) are more reflective and vulnerable, revealing the pain of imperfect relationships and the redemption that lies within their repair.
Art of Dying, which is vocalist/lyricist Jonny Hetherington, guitarist Greg Bradley guitarist Tavis Stanley, bassist Cale Gontier, and drummer Jeff Brown, hit the road this month for the first annual Avalanche Tour with Stone Sour, Theory Of A Deadman, Skillet, and Halestorm. The tour kicks off Thursday, March 24th in Chicago. Please visit www.AvalancheTour.com for details.
