Alter The Press: Why should Alter The Press! readers check you out?
Down To A Science: Like Paramore we are a punk-pop influenced alternative rock band with an attractive female frontwoman that has an amazing voice. Only our frontwoman plays guitar too! Our songs are infectiously catchy yet totally rocking. Expect huge choruses, technical musicianship, creative rhythms and an unbelievable high-energy live show. If any Alter The Press! reader likes punk pop music at all, then they will absolutely LOVE us! At an average age of 23 we write songs from the heart that the youth of today can relate to, yet we also bring a maturity to our music that broadens our appeal further. We have every desire to be HUGE and go as far as we possibly can in this industry. Join us for the ride, its going to be a lot of fun!

ATP: What's the story behind the band?
Down To A Science: Down To A Science, aka D2AS formed less than a year ago in April 2010. It started in February 2010 when Dan (guitar) put an advert on a musician search website that Emma (vocals/guitar) responded to. Over the next two months three drummers and two bassists were auditioned to join the band. Eventually Stu (drums) was added to the line-up shortly followed by Ste (bass). The band began gigging in June and have been gigging regularly since. In February 2011 the band's debut EP was released. The recording and production of the EP was funded by the band themselves and all artwork used in the production of the EP's digipak was designed by the band too. The band has also organised its own gigs with support acts on several occasions. The most notable of which took place at the highly regarded venue Birmingham O2 Academy3. The band has also produced its own line of merchandise including self-designed t-shirts and glow-in-the-dark wristbands.

ATP: Single highlight as a band so far?
Down To A Science: The single biggest highlight that we have experienced as a band was when we supported LostAlone in Derby, UK in February 2011. Derby is LostAlone's home town and is also where 3 members of D2AS are based so was a very special intimate show. LostAlone have recently signed to Warner Bros record label and in February 2011 were supporting My Chemical Romance on their UK tour having already supported bands like Paramore and 30 Seconds To Mars in the past. They are one of if not THE best live band we have ever seen and no surprise that they have made the breakthrough and been signed by such a major label. It was an honour to share the stage with them and tomeet them in person.

ATP: What are your plans for the 12 months?
Down To A Science: The next 12 months will be a very busy time indeed. This summer we intend to record and release our second EP. Filming of our debut music video is already underway with a view to a summer release. The band will make its first festival appearance at Glastonbudget 2011 at the end of May. We have many more gigs lined up with the intention of starting to branch out of the Midlands, and play shows across the whole of the UK with as many great bands as possible. More importantly keep writing and rehearsing and working to improve as a band constantly.
