Formed by twin brothers Michael and Robert Moroni, alt-rock band Viretta is one of the most well-known bands in Denver. Having toured the West Coast on multiple occasions, and headlined or played sold-out shows in nearly every venue in Denver, including a headliner at the historic Bluebird Theater, the group follows their gut; championing electric live shows and quality music, over current music trends. In doing so, Viretta has become one of the most exciting rock acts that’s surfaced in years; so awesome, that you’ll never listen to Ed Sheeran again. And now, with their new full length record “The Fear,” due for release May 18th, nowhere is safe. Serving up their own brand of molten hot riff rock with smooth contemplative guitar work, like Queens of the Stone Age falling backwards into Radiohead, Viretta makes sure everyone’s going home happy. You’ll thank us later.
