Down and Above

Down and Above, otherwise known as DNA is a hard rock band based out of Minneapolis, Minnesota. The band consists of David Young (vocals and lead guitar), Ian Allison (vocals and bass guitar), and Zach Young (drums and vocals).


Down and Above's [ official website] boasts "Minneapolis-based Down and Above have emerged with a refreshing sound that blends heavy grooves, 3-part harmonies, and hardcore-inspired breakdowns into a powerful, melodic mix. Originally from the small town of Kalispell, MT, the three longtime friends entered into the thriving Minneapolis music scene at the end of 2000. Starting off playing tiny record stores and college cafeterias, the band quickly turned the heads of many music fans in the upper midwest."

Down and Above's record, "Anodyne" was released on September 8, 2004. The band considers their influences to be King's X, Rush, Candiria, Björk, Tori Amos, and Richard Buckner.

"Hold Your Breath For A Rising Tide" the band's new album, is slated for release on Feb. 26, 2008. It is said by the band to be a more mature style of writing that is unparalleled by any of their previous work.
