4 OCTOBER 2021 (TORONTO, ON) – Today, Arkells are back with their hotly anticipated return to live touring. Full details and tickets available BELOW.
After playing for 30,000 fans over three once-in-a-return-from-pandemic history making nights at Toronto’s Iconic Budweiser Stage, Arkells are hitting the road in support of their freshly minted new album, Blink Once, released on September 22 via Universal Music Canada.
“We snuck in a few shows this summer and it was an amazing feeling,” said frontman, Max Kerman. “Our live show is a craft we’ve developed over the years from touring. The way each show builds on the last is how we evolve and grow. We’ve missed it so much as it’s a huge part of our identity as a band. The chance to bring concerts back to Canada with music lovers across the country is something we won’t take for granted.”
In addition to this run of shows, Arkells also announced fresh Blink Once dates in the USA, UK and Germany. As committed supporters of vaccine awareness, the band want their fans to feel safe at their shows.
“We want to move forward together,” continues Kerman. “Based on the consistent findings from our healthcare community, we proudly support the vaccine and accompanying regulations to keep our most vulnerable safe. As a courtesy to all guests, full vaccination is required to enter the show."
Tickets for the BLINK ONCE Tour will go on-sale Thursday October 7th @ 10 AM, with fan pre-sales commencing tomorrow, Tuesday October 5th at 10 AM.
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.
