Chicago-based band Archers & Illuminators was added to the Red Cord Records family, and will be hitting the studio next May to record their Red Cord debut. They already have an EP out, Perception is Reality, which you can grab over at iTunes.

Check out their song “Rise Up,” and we look forward to hearing more from these guys in 2014.
