SWEAR ON YOUR LIFE was created in the spring of 2005 by MilitiA. (from

Often described as "Riot grrrl meets Rage Against the Machine," SOYL is
exhilarating, empowering, triumphant, daring and mean with a vengeance-
while putting a bullet into every cliché associated with female-fronted
hard rock / heavy metal.

SWEAR ON YOUR LIFE has recently shared the stage with Twisted Sister [Bent

NYC Premiere Party - where original riot grrrl KATHLEEN HANNA (Bikini
Kill, Le Tigre) described MilitiA's voice as "some of the best live vocals
(she's) ever heard.”
