Rise Up Lights

Genre: Post-Hardcore, Emo
Hometown: Pensacola, FL

Rise Up Lights is a post-hardcore crew hailing from the sunny shores of Pensacola, FL. These guys don't play by the rules - they've mashed up everything from Screamo, Metalcore, pop-punk, and even including more EDM accents to create a sound that's as unique as a unicorn in a tutu. Their first EP 'A Sunny Place for Shady People' dropped in 2016, but they disappeared for a hot minute before coming back in 2018, ready to rock harder than ever. They even opened for Bayside, The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, We The Kings, and Northbound - talk about rubbing elbows with the bigwigs! Plus, I don't know what kind of deal with a cosmic being they had to sign but they even got Kellin Quinn from Sleeping With Sirens to lend his pipes to a track on their album 'Black Heart'. Rise Up Lights is definitely not your average band, so buckle up and get ready for a wild ride!

Rise Up Lights are:

Aleks Acari - Vocals
Shane Palag - Bass
Brandon Mckendrick - Guitar
Michael Cannon - Guitar
Dylan Petitt - Drums
