Arkells to tour

Canadian rockers Arkells are excited to return to the US for a 4-week tour with Lights. Beginning October 23rd in Seattle, WA, Arkells will hit the road and continue to win over music fans with a sound Esquire Magazine, Alternative Press, Nylon and Paste Magazine spotlight as an impressive "combination of crunchy rock guitars and an unabashed love for Hall & Oates pop melodies."

New song "On Paper," one of the ten impressive tracks on the band's new album MICHIGAN LEFT, helped win the band another Juno award - this time for "Group Of The Year."
