Juno Award-winning Canadian rockers Arkells, named after the Hamilton, Ontario street on which they rehearsed, formed in 2006. They self-released their debut EP, Deadlines, in 2007 before seeing it reissued the following year on the Canadian independent label Dine Alone. The band's first long-player, Jackson Square, arrived in 2008, and resulted in a 2010 Juno Award for New Group of the Year. It was followed in 2011 by their sophomore outing and major-label debut, Michigan Left, which earned the group its second Juno Award. Known for their passionate, politically charged rock and energetic live shows, Arkells have toured diligently since their early days. Working with producer Tony Hoffer (Beck, M83), they released their third album, High Noon, in 2014. Landing their first bona fide alt-rock number one with the single "Leather Jacket," the album was eventually certified gold in Canada and put another two Junos in their growing collection. Following 2015's Study Music EP, Arkells began teasing songs from their forthcoming fourth LP while on tour in early 2016. The album, Morning Report, was released in August 2016 on Last Gang/eOne and was described by singer/guitarist Max Kerman as their "most honest" work yet. The album's first single, "Private School," peaked at number one on Canadian Alternative radio. ~ James Christopher Monger & Timothy Monger
