The latest single off the upcoming Arkells album is here. 11:11 is a sweet jam with a really slick video. Hamilton’s rock goldenboys are releasing their third album, High Noon, on August 5th and judging from the singles released so far it will be a solid album. These few new singles have made me quite excited to hear the rest of the album. Arkells have also been recently added to the main bill for Supercrawl 2014.
We’ve written songs about love before, but the protagonist is usually a bit of an asshole and situation in general is grim. 11:11 is the opposite of that – there’s nothing but hope in the air, blue skies ahead. There’s a local rocknroll club called The Casbah in our hometown, Hamilton, ON, and that’s where the song takes place. I was at a show watching a band, and I met a girl.
