Arkells (Last Gang/eOne)
5/10/17

WHAT IT IS: The most-played band at Alt radio in their native Canada, the gold-selling, 4X Juno-winning Arkells are making major strides in the U.S. with the release of their latest album, Morning Report. Produced by Joe Chiccarelli (The Strokes), Tony Hoffer (Beck), Brian West (AWOLNATION) and Gus van Go (The Stills), Morning Report is a sonically diverse step forward “that shows the band pushing the barrier of mainstream music (Paste).” Arkells spent most of the past year touring, playing some of the biggest festivals in the U.S., including Coachella, Lollapalooza, Firefly and Bonnaroo, building their audience and solidifying their reputation as a passionate, high-energy, live-rock authority.
