Level 2.0 (pronounced: Level two-point-zero) is an EBM/Industrial band originally based out of Long Island, New York. Mike Hoffman (singer/lyrics) & Matt Clennan (synth/programming) formed the band in 2005. In August of the same year, this duo exploded onto the electronic scene with their first (and self-released) album entitled 'Dreams of Youth.'
Their 'Betrayal' EP followed in Autumn 2005 and was released by Nemesys Music. Later that year, they toured the northeastern United States where their aggressive dance floor style created a new emphasis within EBM music.In 2007, Alex Matheu helped produce and master Level 2.0's 'Intercept' release. His influence has proven to be instrumental in helping Level 2.0 find their focus and in building their recognition on dance floors across Europe and the United States. By creating a much larger and more diverse fan base, 'Intercept' has pushed LEVEL 2.0 further into the evolution of EBM & Industrial music today.Once again, Level 2.0 are back with 'Armageddon,' in December 2009; mastered by Ted Phelps of Imperative Reaction.
'ARMAGEDDON' was their first release on Nilaihah Records and by far the strongest yet from this riveting up-and-coming band! Mastered by Ted Phelps of Imperative Reaction.
With their newest release 'Battle Sight Zero', New York's Level 2.0 pulled upon the real life war experience of band member Matt Clennan's experiences and time over in Iraq. These songs gave life to a polished new album with 13 intense, hard hitting and insightful tracks.
Now in 2012, due to personal circumstances, Matt has found a new direction in his music career. But that has not stopped Mike Hoffman from delivering perhaps the best release yet with 'ELEVATE'.
