::Pristinely recorded at the Blasting Room in Fort Collins, More Than Medium's eponymous debut is as polished and by-the-numbers radio-friendly as it gets. If ever there was a forumla for igniting a heated Love affair with broadcasters, this quartet has followed it down to the letter. In the span of three songs that have a running time of just under twelve minutes, More Than Medium makes a strong case for why it should be considered as a contender for Denver's next breakthrough mainstream act. Fans of straightahead, guitar driven rock in the vein of Default and Nickelback will instantly recognize and embrace the patented ebb-and-flow dynamic of those bands on (More Than) Medium, where subdued verses bookend exploding choruses built upon gigantic hooks while ascending/descending octave chods bridge the ends together. There's a distinct line between those who find alt-rock anthemic and those who consider it anemic. Regardless of which side you fall on, Medium more than lives up to its name on this disc.

Bio

More Than Medium came together in March of 2004 in the wake of a number of band breakups with the intention of fulfilling Denver's need for a good show. That year, Alex Zamora (bass) was summoned to Denver from Houston, TX by his brother Nick Zamora (drums) to reunite the locked-since-birth rhythm section they formed as children. Their goal being to elevate the band's overall technical ability, the Zamoras joined Keegan Spangenberg (vocals), who, along with Nick, comprised the foundation of the band's predecessor, and Imkong Yaden (guitar).

Responding to the clamor generated by fans of their energetic live shows, the group recorded their debut E.P. with Jason Livermore at Ft. Collins' renowned Blasting Room in early 2005. The three song disc quickly became among the most played on the 93.3 KTCL Locals Only show, being listed in the Top Ten Local Spins in Denver's Westword.

Plans for a full-length recording and tour were derailed in early 2006 by Yaden's marriage and subsequent departure from the band. After an extensive search, multi-talented guitarist Jose Algara filled the spot and the band spent the few remaining months of the year reestablishing their musical goals, writing, and honing their sound.

Armed with the new songs, a fresh perspective, and a renewed sense of purpose stimulated by Jose's arrival in More Than Medium, the band returned to the stage at Denver's Bluebird Theater in December of 2006 to a tremendous response.

2007 promises to be a busy year for the group and plans are in place for the completion of the long awaited full-length disc and regional touring in support of the album.

Since forming, they have shared the stage with The Dan Band, Seven Mary Three, Billy Corgan, and Love .45 as well as most of Denver’s best bands at venues including Denver’s Soiled Dove, Herman’s Hideaway, The Blue Mule, The Gothic Theater, The Ogden Theater, Larimer Lounge, The Walnut Room, and The Bluebird Theater, as well as The Palms Casino, The Urban Lounge in Salt Lake, The Foundry in Boulder, and many others throughout the mountain states.

Their insanely energetic live performances continue to generate new fans and are built upon the band's philosophy, quoted from their website:

“We give it everything we've got every chance we're given and we thank you for noticing.”

Finally, in response to those who must know what the hell "More Than Medium" means...

* "More Than Medium" was inspired by a member of one of the band's early manifestations. In order to insure that everyone could admire his muscles, he would play in super tight shirts. When, at a show, we overheard the comment "that boy needs more'n a medium" in reference to his shirt size, the name was born.
