The Virtues (not to be confused with The Virtues) continue to record pop masterpieces from their Stockholm home. Their initial Zip Records release was in 2003 ("Ruminate"). Now, their 7th album on Zip Records will be out on January 13, 2017.  Called "Oh Dear" and packed with the restrained power of guitar rock, The Virtues deliver the goods and will delight fans of REM,  the Beatles and The Ramones.
