This is the heart of ilia.
In a generation consumed by its media ilia is making a stand in purity, modesty, and faith... challenging guys and girls alike to rise to a whole new level. Desiring the factory line lifestyle to be broken, ilia encourages youth to pursue their calling whole heartedly, even if it means going to the other side of the world or just standing strong in the hallways of their high school.
Freshly off their 5 month summer tour since May where they played well over 100 shows all across the country from New England to California packing out stages at Ichtus, Cornerstone, Lifest, Soulfest, Prolife and Kingdowm Bound festivals and touring with such great bands as Wavorly, The Wedding, Spoken, Children 18:3, Dizmas, Flatfoot 56 and Since October.
This fall they will be hitting the road to support their New Special Edition Ep for a two month tour with Tooth and Nail Recording Artist - Since October doing over 40 dates in the months of November and December of 2008. Then they will be heading back into the studio to record some brand new material in January 2009 set to be released in February 2009 and then they will be heading out on the road in February and March of 2009 with Wavorly.
