Altamadum

Altamadum was born in the fall of 2007 in Thunder Bay, ON, Canada. Founding members Cameron Thomas (Lead Guitar) and Brendan Byers (Drums) met James Cole (bass) during high school and the three began playing together, mostly instrumental covers. In early 2008, the trio approached another classmate, Joey Parker who would join on performing vocals & rhythm guitar. Altamadum and Parker would separate in the summer of 2013. In the fall of 2009, Sam Mucha (Lead vocals/Rhythm guitar), was approached for taking over lead vocal duties. Mucha's first live appearance with the band would take place on St. Patrick’s Day 2010. Within a year of Mucha joining Altamadum, the band would win its genre in a local "Last Band Standing" competition, firmly cementing their name in the local music scene. Following this, Cole's uncle Russ Elder, owner of ThunderSound Studio, offered to help the band evolve their sound and the band found a new home in the Studio where they would go on to record their two full-length CD's; "We Are..." (2013) & "Levels" (2014). The band also brought in Richard Lawrence to handle all media responsibilities including website management, social media sites, & promotions. Following the release of "Levels" Altamadum embarked on a tour of Ontario in the summer of 2014. In support of the 'Levels' album, Altamadum has released two music videos for the singles "Frozen In Stone" and "Lost In Space". A third video containing a montage of pictures from the summer tour was released to the track "Immortal". Currently, Altamadum is working with various international artists to explore different avenues of music. The group is now writing material for a third full-length album set to be released in 2016, with singles and videos planned for the fall of 2015.
