Arkells Launch Rally Cry, Announce Major Canadian Tour

A well-executed publicity blitz by the Hamilton rock favourites augurs well for the success of their new album, while the arena settings of an upcoming cross-country headlining trek confirm how far they have come.

Arkells Launch Rally Cry, Announce Major Canadian Tour

By FYI Staff

Hamilton rockers Arkells took Toronto by storm on Friday with a well-executed publicity blitz on the release day of their fifth album, Rally Cry (Last Gang/UMC). They were interviewed on major local TV and radio outlets and threw a pop-up party at Union Station. Judging by this clip from CBC, the pop-up blew up real good. 


In a label press release, the band describe Rally Cry as "very much an outward-looking recording. The songs, in one way or another, are asking questions about how we lean on each other, how to love one another, and sometimes - how to best channel your frustration and disappointment and turn it into something productive."

A headlining Canadian tour set for February has been announced. Beginning on Feb. 2 at Vancouver's Pacific Coliseum, it features 11 arena shows, closing out at MTelus in Montreal on Feb. 19. Lord Huron opens.

Arkells began a 14-date US tour with St. Lucia on the weekend, and on Nov. 16 they begin a 10-show tour of Europe and the UK. A full tour itinerary here.
