*Debuted at #33 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart!

The Medic Droid’s debut album and Modern Art/Epic release Whats Your Medium hit stores June 10, 2008, debuting at #33 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart and # 14 on the iTunes Alternative chart. The album’s first single, “The Killer Anna” has quickly become a shout-out-loud live-show favorite.  

Starting out as a simple side project for its two members last year, Chris Donathon and Hector Bagnod posted their few demos on MySpace, including the obsession-worthy “FER SURE.” The response was so overwhelming that they realized they had no choice but to bring the band to life.  Their first show was Sept. 2007 at the Bowery Ballroom in NYC and to date, they have already sold over 87,000 downloads on iTunes and have been regularly packing out venues across the US. 

Reminiscent of Orgy, Depeche Mode, Muse, New Order and Duran Duran, The Medic Droid’s feverishly rhythmic sound fills every void in the room and permeates through the veins with lightning intensity. The Medic Droid’s success and buzz status has been fueled by a viral frenzy of Internet downloads and is gaining steam through record crowds and merch sales as they tour the US.  Their MySpace page has already received over 8.5 million profile views, and total song plays are nearing 11 million with over 3 million plays on their single “Keeping up with the Jonses” and over 1 million plays on at least two others.

The Medic Droid’s Whats Your Medium is in stores and on iTunes NOW.  Please see European tour dates below.  For more info, including up-to-date show listings, visit www.myspace.com/themedicdroid.
