We recently caught Arkells playing to a huge, adoring crowd at WayHome Festival and couldn't help but wonder: are these sweetheart Hamilton boys on their way to CanRock stardom? Are they the next Tragically Hip?
Well, if they are, their upcoming album Morning Report will be the one to take them there. A Springsteen-sized meditation on the internal conflict that comes from trying to get your shit together while sliding into your thirties hungover, it's an album chock full of anthems you can't help but imagine being belted out by whole hockey arenas.
Arkells' Morning Report comes out this Friday, August 5 via Universal Music Canada, but while you wait for that we have a vinyl copy to give away. And vinyl is how you'll want to hear it. Half blue/half orange with pop art newsprint cover, it's limited to 500 copies globally — which means this bad boy is a collectible. But if that's not enough, we'll also throw in a signed poster.
For a chance to win a vinyl copy of Arkells' Morning Report + a signed poster, follow @ChartAttack on Twitter, and retweet this tweet:
