Alert the Medic (ATM) has earned a reputation as one of the most compelling live rock bands on the East Coast.
— Carlton Munroe, Ex. Dir., NG Riverfront Jubilee
 
 

This Halifax based, four piece rock band is one of the East Coasts’ best kept secrets, known for
bringing the Stadium experience to intimate venues and festival stages alike 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.

2017 will witness the release of their fourth full-length studio project, Let Them Have Their Fun,
a powerful mix of their signature rock-infused anthems along with an exploration of some
uncharted soundscapes, all while under the familiar ATM umbrella. The group was fortunate to,
once again, partner with Producer, Mike Turner, (co-founder/former guitarist of the multiplatinum
band Our Lady Peace and current member of Crash Karma) at The Pocket Studio and
Revolution Recording in Toronto for this project.

Their 2014 release, The Phantom Moves, also produced by Turner, received two 2014 Music
Nova Scotia Award Nominations for Group Recording of the Year and Rock Recording of
the Year. The first single from the album, “Echo And Fade” climbed the MediaBase charts all
the way to #20 on the Canadian Active Rock, #30 on the Alternative Rock Charts, and #29 on
Iceberg Radio's “2014 Top 40 Songs”. The song made its debut south of the border when it
was featured in a SiriusXM montage highlighting the “2014 NHL Plays of the Year”, broadcast
live from Las Vegas on the NHL Network, CBC, NBCSN, and NHL.com during the 2015 NHL
Awards.

 

 

Their songs have been featured on NHL.com and CFL.ca in SiriusXM Ultimate Replay
segments and featured on Rogers Sportsnet MLB Central throughout the entire 2014
Postseason and during the 2014 and 2015 World Series!

In 2013 the group performed to a National audience, live on CTV’s Marilyn Denis Show. Their
single, “The Weatherman Pt. 2” was featured in an episode of Global TV’s hit police drama,
Rookie Blue and was the feature track on the Canada International Film Festival Award
winning production “William’s Lullaby”.

ATM’s sophomore album, We, the weapon, received critical acclaim and 2010 Music Nova
Scotia Award Nominations for Group Recording of the Year and Pop/Rock Artist/Group
Recording of the Year; 2010 East Coast Music Award Nominations for Rock Recording of
the Year and Group Single of the Year for "Atlas", the debut release from the album; and
received an East Coast Music Award nomination for Fan Choice Entertainer of the Year in
2011. "Atlas" achieved national rotation for over 14 weeks and cracked the Mediabase Top 50
Active Rock Canadian Charts.

We, the weapon was Alert The Medic’s follow up to their 2006 Self-Titled debut album. The first
single off the Self-Titled project, "Reported Missing", climbed to #1 on the East Coast
Countdown radio show and gained the group national attention. The album garnered 2008
Award Nominations from both the East Coast Music Association and Music Nova Scotia,
including CBC’s coveted Rising Star of the Year.
