The Arkells have announced the album ‘Morning Report’, the band’s fourth album and first on Last Gang Records, set for release August 5th.

This is Arkells’ first record since 2014’s ‘High Noon’, which landed on #1 on the Canadian iTunes chart and earned the band a certified Gold record (Canada) and 2015 JUNO Awards for Best Group and Best Rock Album.

Max Kerman explains the album: “A lot of songs start from what happened the night before – that’s where the title comes from: friends who text the next day and demand ‘Give me the morning report!’” Max continues, “this is our weirdest, funniest, saddest record yet, and therefore, our most honest one, too.”

‘Private School’ is the first single off the much awaited album and showcases the bands infectious and tongue in cheek attitude that lures so many towards their music.


This summer Arkells will hit the road for a string of festival performances, making first time appearances at Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, and Firefly Music Festival. More tour dates to be announced soon.
