Jen Militia’s Berlin Boot Camp
Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) January 7, 2007
Call it Commando Pop. Call it Mad Pimp. Call it whatever you want, but pay attention because Jen Militia is back. Berlin Boot Camp, the band’s third album, will hit the streets early 2007 supported by a tour that takes the band from Toronto to Charlottetown.
Jen Militia is a group of illegal rock combatants. Their explosive sound has been described as having the throw down factor of The Clash, the soul of Mary J. Blige, the raps of Ol’ Dirty Bastard and the straight funk of Rage Against the Machine.
“If you take the sexiness of hip hop and the swagger of punk rock then you pretty much know what we’re about,” says Trinidad-born frontman Mike Dainjah.
Dainjah returned to his MC roots in 2004 after a stint with blues rock band Stone Prophets. He is backed by virtuoso guitarist Jay Double, the powerhouse rhythms of Christion and Kyle Nova, Holla the entertainer and notorious beat-jacker Gord Pesst. Their mission: to reclaim the airwaves from the Sucka MCees.
Girls, gin and revolution are Jen Militia’s forte but introspection is never far behind. Jen Militia’s songs cover everything from love to loss to the pursuit of freedom. “Citizen” reminisces about being in love with a ‘broken girl,’ on the driving lead single “Not A Test” Dainjah growls at the Sucka Mcs “come on out your graves for the mind!” and with “5GF” there is no mistake: “Got 5 girlfriends and no control but the 2 I love best are rock and roll.”
