If you have’t heard this rock group, here’s a little background. Max Kerman, Mike DeAngelis, Nick Dika, Tim Oxford and Anthony Carone all met at McMaster University where they attended college. They named the band Arkells after Arkell Street which is where they all lived and honed their music craft together.
Since the band started in 2006 they have gone to climb the rock ladder, touring with bands such as Tokyo Police Club, The Postelles, X Ambassadors and Lights. Aside from the note-worthy bands they have toured with, they have independently earned their high rank status on the charts. Most recently, garnering awards such as the Juno Award for Group of the Year and Rock Album of the Year in 2015.
Below you can check out their most recent music video for “Private School” which features past artists they have worked with such as Lights, Dave Monks from Tokyo Police Club and Steve Jocz (from Sum 41..throwback!) who was also the director of the video.
Morning Report is due to drop on August 5th so, before you run over to the movie theater to see Suicide Squad, hop onto i-Tunes and download the album here.
