Leading up to their Coachella debut and less than a week after performing at the 2017 JUNO Awards, gold-selling alt-rockers Arkells release “Knocking At The Door, an upbeat and empowering track written while on their most recent tour. The band teased the release of the brand new single earlier this week on their socials with visual teasers titled “Knocking,” “At,” “The” and finally “Door” today. “Knocking At The Door” is available digitally now and will be featured on a Deluxe Edition of the band’s most recent album, Morning Report. The Deluxe Edition of the album will be released later this spring via Last Gang Records. “Knocking at the Door” is available for download and streaming today.
“We kicked off this year with a tour across North America. The top of 2017 proved to be an inspiring time to travel the continent, and the experience of playing for different communities began to inform new musical ideas,” said frontman, Max Kerman. “Every night on stage, new melodies, words and arrangements began percolating throughout the band. When we came home we got right to work on this song. We didn’t want to wait around to release it. We wanted you to hear it now.”
With no shortage of new music for fans, Arkells released a “My Heart’s Always Yours” remix EP last month featuring remixes by alt-pop phenom Lights and indie darlings The Darcys.
Since the release of Morning Report, Arkells have spent much of the year touring, playing some of the biggest festivals in the U.S., including Lollapalooza and Bonnaroo; building their audience and solidifying their reputation as a passionate, high-energy, live-rock authority. In addition to performing at the 2017 JUNO Awards this past weekend, they were nominated for Group of The Year and Rock Album of The Year. This summer, Arkells are slated to play a host of marquee festivals including Coachella, Shaky Knees, Bunbury, XPoNential Festival, Osheaga and Mo Pop, and they have a sold-out show with July Talk at Budweiser stage in Toronto on June 24.
