Bio

Contrary to what their name might indicate, Illinois formed in Pennsylvania -- Bucks County to be exact. Comprised of musicians Chris Archibald (vocals, guitar, banjo, keys), Andrew Lee (guitar, keys), Martin Hoeger (bass), and John-Paul Kuyper (drums), Illinois forged a style of indie rock that combined the grit and punchiness of the White Stripes with the easygoing vibe of the Arcade Fire. Illinois released their first EP, What the Hell Do I Know?, in the spring of 2007 via Ace Fu Records.
