Arkells have announced their fall North American tour dates supporting alternative rock band KONGOS. These dates have been added alongside Arkells’ existing tour dates with English folk troubadour Frank Turner as well as their own headlining dates. This exciting tour will kick off on Sept 15 with a headlining show at the Studio at Webster Hall in NYC. From there the band will play a few Midwest dates supporting Frank Turner before kicking off their support dates with KONGOS on October 6 at Saint Andrews Hall in Detroit. The KONGOS’ dates will come to an end at the Orange Peel in Asheville, NC on Oct 18. The band will join back up with Frank Turner for a handful of East Coast tour dates before Turner takes over the supporting roll for Arkells’ two SOLD OUT headlining shows at Massey Hall in Toronto. See below for a full list of supporting and headlining tour dates and for more information, please visit arkellsmusic.com.
The tour is in support of Arkells’ acclaimed fourth studio album, Morning Report, out now via Last Gang Records. Produced by Joe Chiccarelli (The Strokes, My Morning Jacket), Tony Hoffer (Beck, M83), Brian West (Sia, AWOLNATION), and Gus van Go (The Stills, Wintersleep). The record showcases the intuitive interaction between frontman Max Kerman and Mike DeAngelis’ intertwining guitars, Nick Dika’s urgent basslines, Anthony Carone’s dulcet keys, and Tim Oxford’s lockstep drumming.
