The Militia Group was founded in 1998 by Chad Pearson as a booking agency, booking for artists such as Slick Shoes, Craig's Brother, Dogwood, twothirtyeight, Acceptance, and Element 101. Both Pearson and Rory Felton had previous experience with independent labels and artists; Pearson working at Tooth & Nail Records in Seattle, WA and Rory Felton co-operating Arise Records in Kansas. Arise released titles including first The Juliana Theory release, Dawson High, Tijuana Crime Scene, The National Arobat, Reflector and Recess Theory. In 2000, Chad Pearson teamed up with Rory Felton to turn the agency into an independent record label based out of Huntington Beach, CA. By January 2001, the label had signed Rufio, The Lyndsay Diaries, Tora! Tora! Torrance!, Veronica, and Noise Ratchet. Within the next year Copeland, The Rocket Summer, The Beautiful Mistake, and Acceptance joined the fold.

By 2002, the label had sold its first 100,000 albums with its first release: Rufio's 'Perhaps, I Suppose...', and was operating out of offices in Anaheim, CA. By 2004, as the label moved operations from Anaheim, CA to Garden Grove, CA. In early 2007, Pearson left TMG to start a company called P is for Panda. 2007 saw albums released by Denison Witmer, The New Frontiers, Chase Pagan, and We Shot The Moon. By 2008, the label had sold over 1,400,000 albums. from Wikipedia
