Arkells (Max Kerman, Mike DeAngelis, Anthony Carone, Nick Dika, Tim Oxford) formed nine years ago and have since become one of Canada’s most successful rock bands. High Noon, released on August 2014, landed at #1 on the Canadian iTunes chart and debuted at #3 on the overall Canadian Neilsen Soundscan chart and #2 on the Digital Albums chart. At the 2015 JUNO Awards in Hamilton, Ontario, Arkells won ‘Rock Album of the Year’ for High Noon and ‘Group of the Year’ and did a unique performance of “Come to the Light” accompanied by Boris Brott and the National Academy Orchestra of Canada. The band’s current single, “Leather Jacket” also recently landed at #1 on the Alternative chart in Canada. Jackson Square, the band's first full length LP was released in 2008 to critical and commercial acclaim, garnering them a JUNO Award for ‘New Group of The Year’ in 2010. Arkells’ sophomore album, Michigan Left, brought the band to the forefront again in 2011, where they put on an electric performance at the Grey Cup in Vancouver. Shortly after, Arkells were named ‘Best Live Act’ by CBC Radio 3 and, in 2012 they won the JUNO Award for ‘Group of the Year’. High Noon was written in Hamilton, is produced by Tony Hoffer (Beck, The Kooks, M83), and includes the band’s hit single “Come to Light”. This collection of songs is the band's most unabashed effort yet – politically charged, heart-on-your-sleeve lyrics, combined with modern and throwback production styling. Arkells have toured with acts such as Metric, The Tragically Hip, Tokyo Police Club, British Sea Power, Anti-Flag and The Black Crowes.
