Canadian alt rock band Arkells have dominated the charts in their homeland and rise to international acclaim. The band consists of drummer Tim Oxford, guitarists Max Kerman, Mike DeAngelis and Anthony Carone sharing vocals with Nick Dika on bass.
Hailing from Hamilton in Ontario, the band met at university and took their name from Arkell Street nearby their campus which was where they lived and practised music. They self-released their debut EP Deadlines in 2007 and later began touring the country playing support for Matt Mays & El Torpedo.
They continued their self-releases with their first album Jackson Square in 2008 which helped them win the (Canadian Artists Selected By You) CASBY Award for Favourite New Artist the following year. Their breakthrough moment came in 2011 with the release of the second album Michigan Left. The record rose to #5 in the Canadian charts and was nominated for Rock Album Of The Year at the Juno Awards. This paved the way for High Noon which hit #3 and was certified Gold after selling more than 40,000 copies.
Now firmly in the headlights of the mainstream the awards came flooding in, winning Rock Album Of The Year for High Noon and Group Of The Year at the 2015 Juno Awards.
Arkells are back with their brand new album Morning Report which has shot straight to #3 and will feature in their upcoming live shows.
