FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Monday, October 17, 2016
(Halifax, NS) – Four-time JUNO Award winners Arkells return to the Maritimes, in support of their latest release Morning Report, for performances at the Molson Canadian Centre at Casino New Brunswick in Moncton on Tuesday, Feb. 14 and at the Scotiabank Centre in Halifax on Wednesday, Feb. 15. English folk troubadour Frank Turner and The Sleeping Souls is the very special guest for both shows.
“I don’t think we’ve ever toured with such kindred spirits,” says Arkells front man Max Kerman with regards to the pairing. “They embody everything I love about rock’n’roll, and they make us bring our A-game every night. Our biggest shows yet deserve the best lineup, and that’s what we’ve got here.”
Arkells will kick off their 2017 tour dates with Turner on Jan 19 in Silver Spring, MD at The Fillmore. The band will hit several major markets, including Philadelphia, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York City for a special appearance at the Beacon Theatre.
The tour is in support of Arkells’ acclaimed fourth studio album, Morning Report, out now via Last Gang Records, and includes the lead single “Private School”. Produced by Joe Chiccarelli (The Strokes, My Morning Jacket), Tony Hoffer (Beck, M83), Brian West (Sia, AWOLNATION), and Gus van Go (The Stills, Wintersleep). The record showcases the intuitive interaction between frontman Max Kerman and Mike DeAngelis’ intertwining guitars, Nick Dika’s urgent basslines, Anthony Carone’s dulcet keys, and Tim Oxford’s lockstep drumming.
Earlier this month, Arkells released the video for their new single “My Heart’s Always Yours.” The video features the band being observed in a collection of unique art installations. When coming up with a video concept the band decided to turn to Alyssa Pankiw of the interactive media production company, The Young Astronauts.
