Arkells share a new music video for their latest single Arm In Arm, from their brand new album Blink Once, released on September 22 via Universal Music Canada.

“Arm In Arm is about the two things that have helped us through hard times: friends and music,” explains frontman Max Kerman. “One of the best things we see from the stage is seeing folks arm in arm, singing along. We haven’t had many chances to do that together lately, but with any luck we’ll be reconnecting on tour with folks who also take this kind of medicine.”

As luck would have it, fans will get the chance to be arm-in-arm at a tour stop in 2022.

After playing for 30,000 fans over three once-in-a-return-from-pandemic history making nights at Toronto’s Iconic Budweiser Stage, Arkells announced that they will be hitting the road in support of their new album, with 2022 tour dates in Canada, USA, the UK and Germany.

“We snuck in a few shows this summer and it was an amazing feeling,” said 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 travel and play for music fans across the globe is something we won’t take for granted. We’re bringing our A-game.”

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 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, Strong, as well as All Roads, which serves as the soundtrack to #TogetherAgain, a Canadian national vaccine awareness PSA to combat vaccine hesitancy.
