Albany Sounds is Q103's way of highlighting local bands in the Albany/Capitol Region. Each 'episode' is dedicated to one band or artist to showcase their work and tell their story.
Episode 3 features the guys of ABOVE THE FLOOD.
The four members making up the band have been playing the area for several years in others band such as Split 2nd Alibi, The Velmas, and Hygeer. The band features a sound of straight ahead rock with influences like Theory of a Deadman, Breaking Benjamin, Pop Evil, and Nirvana - just to name a few.
Speaking of names, the band has shared the stage with the likes of Nonpoint, Buckcherry, and All That Remains. Most recently the band played alongside TRAPT at Upstate Concert Hall and are currently planning out their 2014 shows.
