Our very own Nicolas Tremblay sat down with vocalist Julia Gentile of the band VILIVANT to discuss science-fiction, musical influences, the modern rock scene, and her upcoming album “Running on Empty” dropping on March 10th.

Gentile is a Canadian rock singer that quickly gained immediate success in the music scene when she was approached at age 14 to record a song for the Pan Am Games; and consequently decided to start writing her own music. Drawing heavily from influences such as Halestorm, The Pretty Reckless and Three Days Grace she created her first self-titled EP (with the help of producer Tal Vaisman & Andre Kaden Black) with streams reaching over 25,000 on Spotify. The debut video for her first single ‘Never Again’ garnered over 25,000 views on YouTube and saw radio airplay on stations such as 94.9 The Rock (Toronto), Rebel 101.7 FM (Ottawa) 98.3 CIFM (Kamloops) & The Wolf 106.9 FM (Nanaimo). With her continuous success on radio, the two singles reached #89 and #98 on the top 100 Canadian rock radio charts; thus garnering a fanbase across the country and internationally.

VILIVANT will perform at The Piranha Bar here in Montreal on April 15th, be sure to pick up tickets at

“Running on Empty” will be available on all your favorite streaming platforms on March 10th!
