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’ beloved hometown concert event that was hailed as one of the biggest headline shows in the country, with record breaking attendance. Arkells continue to unleash new music and international tour dates in support of their BLINK ONCE & BLINK TWICE acclaimed companion albums: featuring collaborations with everyone from Tegan and Sara to K.Flay, Cold War Kids to Aly & AJ and Wesley Schultz of The Lumineers.
“Red Deer it’s been too long, and we needed to change that. We’re not passing through on the way to Calgary, we are bringing the party to Westerner Days for a night to remember. Our only summer rock ‘n’ roll show in Alberta? Sign us up.”
