Hamilton rockers Arkells just released their fourth studio album Morning Report and have already scored two of the buzziest singles of the summer.
Frontman Max Kerman and guitarist Mike DeAngelis were traveling through the southern US states as part of a bachelor party last summer when they ran into Dennis Graham, pops to Aubrey Drake Graham. What happens when you meet the father of Canadian royalty? You write a killer track.
The autobiographical “Drake’s Dad,” their second single from Morning Report, has also been given a video – which shows the band gallivanting around Memphis and reuniting with, who else, Drake’s dad. Kerman and Graham, a native of Memphis, strike a number of poses throughout the video while the rest of the band parties, plays a gig in Tennessee, drinks cheap American beer and gets drunk on friendship.

Morning Report was released earlier this month and, in addition to “Drake’s Dad,” the album’s first single “Private School” has been racing up the charts with its poppy beat and earworm chorus. Arkells are set to kick off the North American leg of their Morning Report Tour on August 27, which will include six Canadian shows.
To celebrate their upcoming tour, the boys have released a live video of “Private School” from their huge WayHome Festival performance earlier this summer. The band doubled in size for this electric rendition, enlisting the help of a brass section and back up singers to help drive home those catchy, tongue-in-cheek lyrics.
