"I'm thrilled to be asked to sing this song- the words are beyond relevant in these modern times. Mental and emotional health are no longer dirty words or deep dark secrets. Everyone can say it out loud now when they are going through it and not be shamed for it. "LIVING FOR NOTHING" is an anthem for anyone who gets sensitive to life's discontents. I hope it empowers those who need an outlet for their frustrations and it gives them strength." - Militia Vox

MILITIA VOX is featured on THE VATICANTS' new release “LIVING FOR NOTHING.” This is one of the most powerful rock songs to hit the modern music scene. At the height of the pandemic, they connected & collaborated with like-minded musicians from across the globe to create the best possible team to execute this vision.

Watch "Push Comes To Shove" here:

Militia Vox explains "After the vocal session, I asked Michael Holtzman(songwriter, guitarist from Bad Penny) how they found me. They said they took a poll at the Bad Penny camp, the Judas Priest camp and Tony Bruno's (Producer, Rihanna's music director) camp, asking for recommendations for the new singer to go toe to toe with the metal god, Rob Halford. They asked "Who's not famous yet, but should be?" ...and my name came up a few times. Incessant thanks to them!"

Militia Vox also shares, "Working with Rob Halford was a dream come true. I respect him so much as an artist, vocalist, lyricist and soul. He’s the greatest voice teacher I’ve ever had- by no intention of his own!" She adds, "I was sitting in a CoViD testing spot, anxiously waiting for my results. I had tested positive a week prior, did my time and was hoping for a clean result. As I’m waiting, I see an email on my phone titled, 'Duet with Rob Halford?' I immediately thought it was some kind of sick joke. I read the email thinking, 'I wonder how many people they sent this to?' Music was attached. I open it, saying to myself ‘it’s probably some shitty demo.’ The music plays and it’s high quality. Then I think, ‘oh, it’s probably a demo with someone else singing as a placeholder’ then I hear Halford’s voice. ‘Well, it’s probably not a proper duet, they just want me to do the hook.’ Then I hear spaces in the song- vocal space during a verse and a bridge with very other line out. I melted- it’s a proper duet! Just at that moment, they told me I tested negative! I responded to the email and the rest is herstory. Best day ever."

Militia has a BFA from Boston Conservatory at Berklee and has Music Certificates from Harvard X and Berklee Online. She speaks at colleges and conferences such as Berklee College of Music, NAMM and SXSW. She currently models for Manic Panic - the #1 alternative hair color company in the world.
