Rise Records has welcomed Portland's Defeat The Low to their roster. The band self-recorded their album at Rain City Studios in Portland and Rise will be releasing it later this year. Vocalist Chris Huaraque stated:
Defeat The Low is extremely excited to announce our signing with Rise Records! We couldn't be more stoked to release our debut album with such tremendous support behind us. This collection of our first songs written together as a group is emotionally charged and straight to the point. Defeat The Low aims to be as enthralling as it is familiar.
