Arkells are on the road promoting their latest studio long-player, Morning Report, which was released in August 2016 through Universal Music Canada and Last Gang Records. The Juno Award-winning band brought in four different producers to record Morning Report: Joe Chiccarelli, who has worked with The Strokes and My Morning Jacket; Tony Hoffer, who has worked with Beck and M83; Brian West, who has worked with Sia and AWOLNation; and Gus Van Go, who has worked with Wintersleep and The Stills. The album spawned four singles: “Private School,” “Drake’s Dad,” “My Heart’s Always Yours,” and “Knocking at the Door.”
Morning Report follows Arkells three previous full-lengths: Jackson Square (2008), Michigan Left (2011), and High Noon (2014).
Serving as opening act will be Irontom, an artsy indie rock band based in Los Angeles. The band, which includes the son of drummer Jack Irons of Red Hot Chili Peppers and Pearl Jam fame, released its debut studio album, Partners, earlier this year. The 10-track collection, released back in May, was producer by Aaron Bruno of Awolnation and Under the Influence of Giants. Partners spawned three singles: “Brain Go,” “Hookers,” and “Bold Like Elijah.”
Tickets are available for $15 here at AXS.com. Doors open at 8 p.m. This is an 18 & over event. The Sinclair is located at 52 Church Street in Cambridge, Mass. For more information, visit Arkells’ website, IRONTOM’s website, and The Sinclair’s website.
