In July 2016, Altona began what should’ve been a brief hiatus. Following countless member changes and dwindling creative momentum, a general sense of disillusionment arose among remaining members. To top it off, an invitation to play Canadian Music Week didn’t materialize when the band were in a serious car accident en route to Toronto.
So, despite a successful 2015 EP release and Western Canadian touring, the group sank beneath the radar.
Now, three years later, Altona is categorically firing on all cylinders once more. With a string of regional shows lined up for the new year, the Vancouver indie/emo rockers are moving ever-forward with the recent past, vigorous and real, still in their eyeline.
Their debut full-length "I Hope I Got All The Good Stories Out Of Them" is out now.
