ARKELLS [MAX KERMAN, MIKE DE ANGELIS, ANTHONY CARONE, NICK DIKA and TIM OXFORD] formed nine years ago at school and have since become one of Canada’s most successful rock bands.
JACKSON SQUARE, the band’s first full length LP was released in 2008 to critical and commercial acclaim, garnering The JUNO Award for New Group Of The Year in 2010. In 2011, they released MICHIGAN LEFT, a collection of blue-eyed soul anthems that brought them to the forefront again. In 2012 they won The JUNO Award For Group Of The Year and the CBC Music award for Best Live Band. The band have toured and shared the stage with such acts as Metric, Alabama Shakes, The War On Drugs, British Sea Power, Black Crowes and Anti-Flag.
Their latest album, HIGH NOON, was produced by Tony Hoffer [Beck, The Kooks, M83] and is the band’s most unabashed effort yet with politically charged, heartfelt lyrics. HIGH NOON features three #1 singles in Canada: COME TO LIGHT, 11:11 and LEATHER JACKET. In 2015 the album was certified Gold and led ARKELLS to collect two further JUNO Awards for Rock Album of The Year and Group of the Year.
