In 2008, Iowa based power trio North of Grand is celebrating their fifth year as a band with the release of their fourth album, "Setbacks Are Scheduled For Tomorrow." The eight songs, which clock in at just over 23 minutes, were recorded and mixed with John Svec at Minstrel Studios in Iowa City and mastered by Doug Van Sloun at Studio B in Omaha.
From front to back, "Setbacks" displays North of Grand''s knack for writing catchy, guitar-driven rock n roll, littered with memorable hooks and powerful lyrics. The album is certain to further boost the band''s growing popularity across the Midwestern U.S. In March of this year, listeners to KCCQ Radio, 105.1 FM in Ames , chose North of Grand as the "Best Local Band." Hundreds of people voted for North of Grand ahead of major label acts like Slipknot and The Envy Corps.
North of Grand formed in March 2003. The original and current line-up is Sean Wilson (vocals, guitar), Dan Ketelsen (bass, backing vocals) and Pat Curtis (drums, backing vocals). Since their first gig in April of 2003, North of Grand has played more than 200 shows in nearly 20 states (as of April 2008).
The name "North of Grand" comes from the area in Des Moines (just north of Grand Avenue ) where the band chooses to drink and live.
