Hamilton, ON rock band Arkells were surprised with new Gold Album Award plaques for their 2016 album Morning Report by Universal Music Canada. The band has now recieved Gold certifications for all four of their full-length studio albums, which includes Jackson Square (2008), Michigan Left (2011), and High Noon (2014). The custom plaques also commemorates the Gold certification of the Morning Report single “Knocking At The Door.”
The band shared the news with their fans across their social media accounts with a photo from a recording studio, suggesting some new music may be on the way!
For JUNO-Award winning rock group Arkells, Friday, February 10, 2017, will certainly go down as one of the most surreal nights of the band’s career. With the LED sign outside the FirstOntario Centre flashing “Welcome Home ARKELLS,” Hamilton, Ontario was eager to plow through the heavy snowfall and sing along again with their hometown heroes. Around 9 PM, Arkells took to the stage in front of 10,000 adoring fans and kick-started an epic 26-song set that will be talked about for years to come.
HAMILTON. Couldn't have dreamt this up better. Thank you for giving us the best damn view in the world. pic.twitter.com/kZcCPX2k8W
