LVL UP is an American lo-fi band from Purchase, New York.
LVL UP formed in 2011 at SUNY Purchase as a recording project between Caridi, Benton, and their friend Ben Smith, with the original intention of releasing a split cassette with Corbo's then-solo material. They instead released their debut full-length album, "Space Brothers" via Evil Weevil Records, as one band, and Rutkin joined shortly afterwards for the group's first show. Smith left the band for personal reasons just before the release of second album Hoodwink'd, a joint release on Caridi and Benton's label Double Double Whammy and Exploding in Sound.
