Started off as just 2 guys starting college and high school remixing music we wrote for our last band, The PaceMakers (http://www.myspace.com/pac3mak3rs) and after 2 shows we split. so I, Patrick Patterson, started up The UpGrade with my brother, Michael Patterson, the 2008-2009 school year. we released our freshmen album, [Insert-Title-Here], the spring of 2009, but even though the album was just coming out, i started work on the next album, The Dream Isn't Over Until The Ending Credits Roll. the 2nd album was written over an 11 week camp session in which both Mike and I were working. The Dream was released at the beginning of the 2009-2010 school year. during the summertime, i found 2 cool things. one was that i could write a rap song based off of my boss, and that i found chiptune music very interesting. you can see that was trying to throw a little bit of it into the mixes, but it wasn't until the Christmas season of 2010, where we released Chapters, a 5 part series where the transition of electronic to chiptune took effect as the songs moved. the album was released New Years day. Working t get a new sound after chiptune, we spent some time working on updating sites and making them up to date. for the longest time, our myspace page (http://www.myspace.com/xthexupgradex) was set to a teal-green tint, to show that we were working on a style that would fit it, so under the name, we put Site Under Construction. As this was all going on, we were still writing music, but along the lines of being more piano based. The early summer of 2010, UnderConstruction, was released. As we were promoting, i would just keep writing music. Michael and i got separate jobs at the camp that we wrote The Dream at, so as i was working, i wrote Electric Logging Company. this album is filled with many different sounds, from piano, to wake up 5-minute wake up calls. this was the summer i started working on a sound board for a friend of mine. moving on, recently I've been working on 2 album sets. one titled The Broken Record, is a remix album with all the songs I've done for contest and just for fun. the other is titled The Fall of... and this album is everything that i have written this 2010-2011 school year.
