Alt-rock band Arkells last year released Blink Once, a seventh full-length album, on Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company and released in partnership with Virgin Music Label & Artist Services US. The Arkells plan to release a new album, Blink Twice, later this year!
Meanwhile, the Arkells visit 9:30 Club on Friday, May 20, for their Blink Once Tour!
You can win a pair of tickets to go with Parklife DC.
As Arkells stayed busy making music during the last two years, they always knew they would come out of the pandemic with two distinct records. “The title of Blink Once was born from the song ‘Reckoning,’ and lyrics ‘blink twice, there’s gonna be a reckoning,'” said Arkells frontman Max Kerman.
Max added, “’Reckoning’ is about privileged people who bury their heads in the sand. It’s also about the admiration for those who lead by example, and want justice for people. We wanted the song to be big and cinematic — something that felt like walking through the streets at night time. We were inspired by everyone from Justice to Run The Jewels and at this point we only wanna go where inspiration takes us.”
