SamaritanMag Features Arkells On Eve Of Hometown Fest

By Aaron Brophy

Canadian rock act Arkells have become one of the country's biggest bands since forming a dozen years ago. So big, in fact, they've created their own music festival at a stadium in their hometown of Hamilton, Ontario, just outside Toronto, with some of the proceeds benefitting the thousand Syrian refugees the city has settled recently.


Taking place this Saturday, June 23, at Tim Hortons Field, The Rally, as it's being called, will feature Arkells, American band Cold War Kids, English singer Bishop Briggs and local act Ellevator.

Read the SamaritanMag interview with band member Max Kerman to find out more about Saturday’s show, and why the band chose this cause.
