What do you do after your third studio album hits #1 on the iTunes dance chart in 20 countries? After the accompanying tour sees you become the first DJs to sell out NY’s Madison Square Garden and LA’s The Forum? How do you top a global run of shows in 2015 that makes you the second-highest grossing electronic act in the U.S.? And what’s next after you’re the only act to get Breaking Bad legend Bryan Cranston to join you onstage in Las Vegas and, you know, play along? If you’re Above & Beyond, after all that, what next? You go acoustic.
But because you’re Above & Beyond, a London-based trio for whom progress is everything, you go further, in every sense. For a band who pride themselves on the song craft at the heart of their dance music anthems, the untapped possibilities inherent in their music was a far bigger buzz — and challenge.
