Drummer Joe Cangelosi stated: “I’m very excited to get this band off the ground, it only took 3 years! with so many ups and downs, people flaking, lineup changes and overall dysfunction. we finally have a complete lineup and we are gearing up to play our debut show to open up the flood gate to the future of Brooklyn Militia. I want to thank everyone for their support and patience.”

The band is currently writing and demoing material for its debut album, tentatively due in early 2014 via an as-yet-undetermined record label.
