TRACK PREMIERE: dubé – “Bittersweet”

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.

And sure, we do fine with our US music, but if that’s all you’re…

Tour Alert: Arkells Embark On Post-SXSW Tour

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.
