The beginnings of the band go back to 2012 with Josh and Steve rekindling the music they used to make when they were in school together. They started Paragon Theorem which went on until 2019 with some local success. That group made friends in the local rock scene, particularly with a band out of Springfield, MA called Vision Within. Vision Within was a modern hard rock band fronted by Dan Vieu from 2012 to 2019. The timely unraveling of both groups and the friendships they had forged sharing stages for so many years lead to the formation of Virtue and Vices.
We first got together in late 2019 but then 2020 happened. During the downtime we put together our first full length record, Edge of Existence, which is available now for download and streaming.
