LVL UP was formed by Dave Benton and Mike Caridi while attending school at SUNY Purchase in late 2010. The project was intended to be a creative outlet for lofi pop songs with an emphasis on brevity. After recording a few demos and garnering a positive response, LVL UP became a full band with the additions of Ben Smith, Nick Corbo and Greg Rutkin. October 2011 saw the release of LVL UP's debut full length "Space Brothers" on cassette, followed by a vinyl release in February 2012 on Evil Weevil Records. The record received modest attention, exciting a small but dedicated fan base in the northeast United States.

LVL UP saw departure of guitarist Ben Smith late 2012. The now four-piece entered the studio winter 2012-2013 to record their second release, "Extra Worlds". This release experimented with both hi-fi and lo-fi recording techniques, while still keeping to the indie-rock/pop song structure of "Space Brothers". "Extra Worlds" was released on Double Double Whammy in April of 2013.

LVL UP has shared the stage with bands such as Real Estate, Beach Fossils, Japanther, The Babies, Bomb the Music Industry, and Joyce Manor.
