Living Illusion

Living Illusion

 Edmonton, Alberta, CAN

Living Illusion is a high-energy progressive hard-rock band from Edmonton Alberta, Canada. Known for their awesome live performances, Living Illusion is infecting people across the globe with their unique blend of heavy guitars, melodic vocals and driving percussion.


Living Illusion's debut self titled album, has established them as a fresh and innovative force, uncovering a sound which showcases their melodic and progressive hard rock style. Their single "Whispers" has made it to the Top Ten of various University & College charts and has received airplay across Canada and the UK.

Founding members, Shane and Jason Lamotte, joined together in 2002 and spent the next years perfecting their first album. The record is a combination of songs written over a 5 year span and is a journey from aggression to self-realization. Since the albums release, they have succeeded in building a following for their music through touring and guerrilla style marketing.

While the brothers were accompanied on their album by Andrew "Doc" Degroot (Bass Player for Murder City Sparrows) and Lyle Molzan (Drummer for Jann Arden) they have since formed a solid touring group. The new additions to the band come in the form of Randy Bergh on bass and Sean Kamenski on drums. This addition assists in completing the edgy sound and high energy performance the boys were looking for.

Although the band may not be picked up by a major label they have been marketing themselves effectively. They play as many gigs as they can and still manage to hold down full time jobs. Unfortunately for the business world, their positions may soon be available for those who are looking for regular employment.

Living Illusion's professionalism, musical talents and passionate performances make way for a captivating live experience, leaving their audience feeling thoroughly rocked and begging for more.

Living Illusion has headlined to crowds of over 5000 and has shared the stage with many notable artists including: Econoline Crush, The Art of Dying, Tin Foil Phoenix, Cold Driven, Portal, and most recently ASHES dIVIDE.


Living Illusion has one full length record out, entitled "Living Illusion", and they are currently working their next record.
