JUDAS PRIESTESS Vocalist MILITIA VOX Shows Off Solo Style With New Release And NYC Halloween Residency; "Rid Of Me" Video Posted
October 27, 2014, 2 years ago
Progressive, hard rock/metal vocalist, Militia Vox, releases the first single, “Rid Of Me,” from her upcoming cover EP, Bait, out Halloween 2014. Bait is the tempting lead-in to the upcoming original release, The Villainess, out in 2015. The Villainess is a two-album concept project. The first album is Bait (because every Villain needs good bait to reel in their victims) and showcases Militia Vox as a response to and antithesis of the current pop star, a leader of strong women in music, and a representative of the underworld and its clan of rebels, outlaws and outsiders.
Influenced by the darkness of Type O Negative, Tool and Nine Inch Nails, the multi-talented solo artist Militia Vox (vocals, songwriter, arranger, keys/synth, rhythm guitar) has been a classically trained pianist since the age of 7 and a central figure in bands including Judas Priestess (all-girl tribute to Judas Priest), Swear On Your Life, and Disciples Of Astarothbefore heading out solo in 2013. Named as one of The Huffington Post’s “Ten Fiercest Black Female Rockers,” Militia Vox has lent her vocals to legends such as Dee Snider, Cyndi Lauper and Living Colour, and was a VJ and music/style expert for networks like FUSE, Much Music USA, MTV2, and VH1.
This bi-racial bombshell has reinvented herself as "The Villainess,” a femme fatale with a lust for heavy music, and is on her way to becoming the queen of heavy metal with Bait and the debut single “Rid Of Me”.
Militia Vox will perform a residency during the Halloween season at NYC's premiere haunted attraction, Times Scare, on October 27th, 31st and November 2nd, and just unleashed an accompanying video for “Rid Of Me” this month.
