2011 East Coast Music Award Nominees for Fan Choice Entertainer of the Year, Alert The Medic, is coming to Governor’ Pub on Saturday, June 25, for a 10pm show.
A four piece rock band from Halifax, Alert The Medic’s sophomore album, We, the weapon, received 2010 Music Nova Scotia Award Nominations for Group Recording of the Year and Pop/Rock Artist/Group Recording of the Year. It also earned them 2010 East Coast Music Award Nominations for Sirius Satellite Rock Recording of the Year and Vibe Creative Group Single of the Year for “Atlas”, the debut release from the album.
In 2010, Alert The Medic performed at the JunoFest celebrations in St. John’s, Newfoundland, alongside fellow rockers The Arkells and Hollerado, and won a spot on the Music Nova Scotia Week Gala Awards Show stage in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia.
Alert the Medic joined forces in 2006 with producer Laurence Currie (Sloan, Wintersleep) to create their first release that carried the title of the band’s name. The first single off this project, “Reported Missing” climbed to #1 on East Coast Radio and garnered Award Nominations from both the ECMA and Music Nova Scotia, including CBC’s Galaxie Rising Star of the Year.
Reviewers say Alert The Medic will “wake people up” and are “fast-paced, heavy-hitting fun.”
