22 SEPTEMBER 2021 (TORONTO, ON) – Today, Arkells release their brand new album, Blink Once (https://
“Blink Once is about resilience. It’s about grieving with loss and fall outs and finding your way back,” says frontman Max Kerman. “The making of the album began before the pandemic, but the material seems to hit harder after everything we’ve been through over the past 18 months. These songs are about finding comfort in your family, community and music.”
Blink Once, a bi-coastal project which was recorded in LA and completed in Toronto, includes current hit single, “You Can Get It” featuring K.Flay, which has charted in the #1 spot at Canadian Alternative Radio for 4 weeks and is their fifth #1 at the format. “You Can Get It” was prominently featured in the E3 launch of the Forza Horizon 5 video game trailer this summer. Blink Once also includes #1 track “Years In The Making,” “One Thing I Know,” “Swing Swing Swing,” as well as “All Roads,” which serves as the soundtrack to #TogetherAgain, a national vaccine awareness PSA to combat vaccine hesitancy.
The new album comes shortly after Arkells’ triumphant return to live music, three once-in-a-return-from-pandemic history-making nights at Toronto’s Iconic Budweiser Stage, in August. Previously announced as a two-night affair, a third show was added to meet the overwhelming demand and enthusiasm for a return to live music this summer, as the band played to a cumulative 30,000 fans. New tour dates to be announced in the following weeks as Arkells return to play across Canada and abroad.
