New Album Morning Report is out August 5th
Every Arkells album feels like it sits in a completely different gear from the one before, but they’re still somehow apart of that same musical transmission. The new track “Private School” might be their weirdest gear yet, but it’s so good.
Why “Morning Report” for an album title? Max Kerman explains “A lot of songs start from what happened the night before, that’s where the title comes from — friends who text the next day and demand ‘Give me the morning report!'”
If some of the background vocals sound familiar, it’s because Dave Monks of Tokyo Police Club is on it too! It makes us happy when Canadian bands hang out in song. Keep yours eyes out in the video for Steve Jocz (drummer for SUM41) who also directed the vid.
