Virtue In Vain | A dummies guide to metalcore

Welcome to Metal Digest!

Please describe the band in a single sentence.

Virtue In Vain is a metalcore band who pride themselves on creating heavy music and putting on passionate performances.

What’s your latest project and what are you working on right now?

We are currently writing for our next EP, we have the beginnings of a couple songs which we are really excited to finish and get out for everyone.

How do you want people to feel when they listen to your music?

I (Hywel) would like people to enjoy the music that we create but most of all to feel that no one is alone in the issues we talk about in our songs, and we as a band and as a community will always support and help one another.

Major influences: Who put you on this path?

The Devil Wears Prada was my major influence. The album With Roots Above And Branches Below just made me want to create music and I have never stopped since.

If you had to flee the country as a band, where would you choose to live?

I would like to think the US, just to be around a lot of the bands we love and play shows in such a wonderful place.

What’s the ‘wow factor’ that makes YOU decide which songs to keep, record and release?

Good question. I would have to say if it’s memorable and the song gets stuck in your head. We have so many alternate versions of our songs because of this reason.

Usually if we remember the song and start humming it or something along those lines, then we know we have created something amazing. The only exception to that rule is if the song makes us feel a certain way, then we know we also have an amazing song on our hands.

What’s the most hilarious band memory you can think of?

A while ago we toured with a band called FRCTRD and the first few days were so funny. Because of the language barrier (as FRCTRD are from France) it was just constantly using googl;e translate to talk to each other, which was so funny. To do this day we love those boys dearly and it is one of our favorite tours we have played.

What would be the title of the band’s biography?

What’s the next milestone you’d like to achieve as a band?

To play either the EU or US. We have wanted to for a long time, but we hope we can do that sometime soon to meet new people and play some amazing places.

Until we meet again,
