Latest information

Arkells share new track, Human Being featuring Lights, ahead of their seventh studio record, Blink Twice, coming 23rd September via Virgin Records / Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company.

“We wanted a chaotic energy - something like Talking Heads meets Billy Joel,” says frontman Max Kerman. “We are learning a lot about ourselves on this record. This song is about finding a truer version of yourself - the one you’ve hid in the past. The song is searching for a kind of freedom that conventional life paths have to offer. Once we had it in good shape we sent it to our friend Lights who is the best at writing about this kind of discovery.”

“To me, this song feels like an anthem for seeking out moments and people that can make you feel something,” says Lights. “We all need a shake up and we all hate being stuck in a rut. We all, as humans, share commonalities and needs that bring us together.”

The release of this new track follows the band’s hometown festival, “The Rally” which has become a highly anticipated and celebrated community event, breaking concert attendance records at Tim Hortons Field.


Blink Twice, the brand new companion album to the band’s current release, Blink Once (50M Streams), showcases a new collection of songs where Arkells continue to push their sound and creativity to a new level. As Arkells stayed busy making music during the last two years, they always knew they would come out of the pandemic with two distinct records.

“Blink Twice is about going to new places and seeing the world with fresh eyes. You can either move through life and grow stubborn, or you can grow curious, says frontman Max Kerman. “We’ve never had an album with so many guest artists along for the ride. Everyone from Cold War Kids, to Aly & AJ, Tegan and Sara, Lights, C-ur De Pirate, Joel Plaskett and Wesley Schultz of The Lumineers. At our core we’ll always be a living, breathing soul band. But Blink Twice lets us be that and more.”

Artist bio

Hailed by The Globe and Mail as “the right kind of band for this decade,” Arkells are widely considered one of the most passionate, exuberant and in-demand live bands working today. As radio mainstays, sports-sync shoe-ins and curious students of culture, Arkells have remained ever present - building awareness and personal community experiences around their live shows and new music at every turn. The most emblematic example of this being The Rally, Arkells' hometown concert that was hailed as one of the biggest headline shows in the country, and is slated to return in 2022. Arkells continue to unleash new music and tour dates as the band and their fans return to live in-person festivities. Their hotly anticipated new album BLINK ONCE is out now, with recently teased BLINK TWICE companion album due later this year.
