Emerging from the deep dirty south of Pine Bluff, Arkansas, just south of Little Rock all female hard rock band ilia (ill-ee-uh) combines a slightly
commercial metal sound with a monstrous hard rock attitude and crunchy hardcore tones.
Over the past year, they played over 125 dates from New England to California. They where also just voted # 6 Hard Rock band of the year by CCM Magazine over several major label bands.
With the release of their debut ep, over 100 dates already booked for the first half of 2008 and and receiving radio airplay on over 150 stations ilia is poised to strike and take a bite out of the game we call the music biz
"Mixes melody and those crunchy metal tones that try to out-volume a Harley Davidson's muffler pipe." - HM Magazin
"With a slight commercial-metal sound, they add enough hardcore, and plenty of melody to make their sound widely enjoyable." - Uprise Magazin
"Their hard rock look flies in the face of what traditional Christians might find acceptable. Look at them but don’t judge them. Listen to them but don’t you dare pigeon-hole them. What comes across is their growing talent and spirit positive riffs and passionate vocals." - Unsigned The Magazin
