LIVE REVIEW: Arkells + Frank Turner Sold Out Performance in Hamilton, ON

There’s something so special about being witness to a band’s hometown show. When I learned that I’d be in Toronto for Arkells‘ hometown show in Hamilton, ON, just an hour away, I knew I had to be there. I’d been following the band for only a few years, but after being blown away by their performances at SXSW, I knew that they provided an intense energy and stage presence that was only set to amplify when they were back home.

STREAM: Arkells “A Little Rain (A Song For Pete)”

Is it August yet? After the premiere of “Private School” just a few weeks back and now the unveiling of their second single, “A Little Rain (A Song For Pete)”, the August 5th release of Arkells Morning Report is beginning to feel further and further away, mainly because we just really want to hear the album in its entirety. If the first two singles are any indication, it might just live up to what’s been called their most adventurous, honest album to date. For all you Jay’s fans out there, lest we…

WATCH: Arkells “Private School”

Canadian rock band, Arkells have released a new music video for their latest song,”Private School.” The track is the first single off the group’s upcoming album, Morning Report. “I just wanna love you, but it’s so hard,” Max Kerman sings, stumbling across the video set, which features the band hanging around a bunch of preppy private school teenagers. It’s kind of like a behind the scenes look at the making of Gossip Girl. The video feels like high school all over again and even features guest performances from Lights, Dave Monks of Tokyo Police…

Why Canada’s Arkells Should Be On Your Radar

Let’s talk about Canadian music for a moment. Many of us never get to hear some of the incredible music making waves in Canada, simply because it never breaks the US. We don’t know about it because we don’t live there, and we don’t know enough to listen to some of the incredible stations (like Indie 88—indie lovers get on that stream ASAP!) or to tune in to some of the fine blogs and tastemakers in the area. And sure, we do fine with our US music, but if that’s all you’re…

Tour Alert: Arkells Embark On Post-SXSW Tour

There’s something magical that happens when seeing a band live for the first time. For the average fan, seeing an artist perform live has the ability to either a) totally turn them off if the band is terrible or b) suck them into the music even more than before, because the live show is that memorable. Thankfully, seeing the Arkells perform at last week’s SXSW proved to be the latter. Never have I seen a band perform with such high-intensity and infectious energy. Their connection to their audience as well as one another was…
