“I don’t think we’ve ever toured with such kindred spirits,” says Arkells front man Max Kerman with regards to the pairing. “They embody everything I love about rock’n’roll, and they make us bring our A-game every night. Our biggest shows yet deserve the best lineup, and that’s what we’ve got here.” After a string of dates together, Turner recently tweeted, “I’m totally mainlining Arkells new record. It’s so FUCKING GOOD.”
The tour is in support of Arkells’ acclaimed fourth studio album, Morning Report, out now via Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company. Produced by Joe Chiccarelli (The Strokes, My Morning Jacket), Tony Hoffer (Beck, M83), Brian West (Sia, AWOLNATION), and Gus van Go (The Stills, Wintersleep). The record showcases the intuitive interaction between frontman Max Kerman and Mike DeAngelis’ intertwining guitars, Nick Dika’s urgent basslines, Anthony Carone’s dulcet keys, and Tim Oxford’s lockstep drumming.
