A force to be reckoned with, the hard rock powerhouse VILIVANT premieres her new video for “Running on Empty” exclusively via Toronto’s SPILL MAGAZINE. Watch it HERE! Full of skull-crushing ferocity reminiscent of Izzy Hale, Taylor Momsen and Dorothy, the music video was shot by Alex McFarland and Matt Guarrasi of The Trenches Media. Behind-the-scenes shots done by Rob Licandro. 

“I wanted to make a fun, silly interpretation of what it could feel like to the average person stepping out of the typical mundane lifestyle and actually seeing the beautiful world around them. The Alien and magical headpiece is just a bonus, because why not add a bit of fantasy into it?”, explains Vilivant. 

The music video begins by following lead singer Julia Gentile in black and white signifying a boring mundane everyday life until she receives a special magical headpiece that allows her to see the world in vibrant technicolour. What begins as all fun and games quickly becomes an out of this-world battle with aliens from another planet. The sci-fi inspired video was shot in and around Toronto on the hottest day of the year this past summer almost leading to heat stroke. With lots of breaks and some shooting inside, the video tells an exciting story of finding strength and passion amidst the bleakness of the world around us. 

On October 28th Vilivant will be celebrating Halloween with a headline show in Toronto at The Baby G with support from Fluffio, The Backsteps and The Lookout Service. She will also be supporting Goodnight Sunrise at Mills Hardware on November 4th. More shows to be announced soon! 

TOUR DATES:
10.28.22 @ The Baby G Toronto, ON w/ Fuffino, The Lookout Service
11.04.22 @ Mills Hardware Hamilton, ON w/ Goodnight Sunrise

Earlier this month “Running On Empty“, the single was released on streaming. Produced by Sam Guiana (Juno Nominated band Silverstein), it is jam-packed full of punk rock hooks, that will make any rock lover headbang. With already over 60K streams, it was added to CBC Music and saw impressive coverage from Amplify Music Mag, Grande Rock, The Tinnitist, Metal Heads Forever, The Indy Review and more! 

MORE ON VILIVANT
Vilivant quickly gained success when she was approached at age 14 to record a song for the Pan Am Games. Inspired by hard rock’s leading women, she released her first self-titled EP (with the help of producer Tal Vaisman & Andre Kaden Black). Streams from her debut EP garnered 25K+ streams on Spotify and over 25K+ music video videos for “Never Again”. The single earned an impressive spot on the Top 100 rock radio charts in Canada with support from stations 94.9 The Rock (Toronto), Rebel 101.7 FM (Ottawa) 98.3 CIFM (Kamloops) and The Wolf 106.9 FM (Nanaimo), to name a few. While performing over 40 shows just in 2019 alone, Vilivant grabbed the attention of Demetrius Nath (worked with Arkells, Alexisonfire, Walk off the Earth, Billy Talent, Arctic Monkeys, Bush, The Used).  The following year, she was asked to play for the Australian Wildfire festival (televised event) to help raise money for the wildfires in Australia. That year she also won Jim Beam’s National Talent Search in the Toronto Region with her LIVE off-the-floor performance of ‘Stabilized.’ On Top of this, she also supported Lee Aaron at the sold-out El Mocambo.
