Through their years of relentless touring, Arkells have earned a well-deserved reputation for being one of the best live bands around. With this fifth album, Rally Cry, the Hamilton band is reaching new heights, and it's about to embark on its most ambitious tour yet — a stadium tour.
Musically, Rally Cry reflects this evolution: it’s got bangers that are sure to evolve into crowd sing-alongs in those stadiums.
Watch, below, as an audience of Arkells superfans was lucky enough to experience the band as up close and personal as it gets. For this First Play Live session, Arkells performed Rally Cry in sequence, from track 1 to 10 — the only time they’ve ever played it that way.
