ALERT THE MEDIC
This Halifax based, four piece rock band is known for bringing the Stadium experience to intimate venues and festival stages and creating anthemic melodies that stick in your brain! Over the past decade, they have produced a diverse catalogue of music that attracts Rock and Pop music fans alike. Alert The Medic are Ryan MacDonald, vocals/guitar/piano; Troy Arseneault, guitar; Matt Campbell, bass; and Dale Wilson, drums.
Their fourth full-length studio album, Let Them Have Their Fun, was released in September, 2017 and has been nominated for Rock Recording of the Year at the 2018 East Coast Music Awards. The lead single from the album, Corporate Kid, reached #17 on the MediaBase Canada Active Rock Charts, charting Top 20 in Canada, and spent 11 weeks in the Top 30 songs in Canada on the Nielsen BDS Mainstream Rock Charts. The song was also featured on popular Spotify playlists and to date has received 250,000+ plays.
For their recent recording, the group was fortunate to, once again, partner with Producer, Mike Turner, (co-founder/former guitarist of the multi-platinum band Our Lady Peace and current member of Crash Karma) at The Pocket and Revolution Recording studios in Toronto. The project involved a new approach to the recording process for the group, as the entire album was recorded “live off the floor” at the renowned Revolution Recording studio with Assistant Engineer Phil Hotz (Arkells/Billy Talent/July Talk). This method allowed Alert The Medic to capture both the essence and energy of their live shows, creating a powerful mix of their signature rock-infused anthems along with an exploration of some uncharted soundscapes.
“The new material is very strong and with it the band continues to develop their signature sound, going from strength to strength. The new songs reveal a continuing maturity in their writing and musical identity.”
