In the summer of 2013, we hauled our amplifiers to the second floor of a vacant nightclub in the heart of Hamilton, ON, built originally as a spice factory, and began work on our new record High Noon.

We chose our jam space on the second floor for its large bay windows that let in the light from the east, as well as a stark view of downtown Hamilton, a mixture of historic buildings and underused surface lots. Riding our bikes the ten blocks to the jam space each morning, we kept in mind the unofficial slogan of the city: "Hamilton: a work in progress." Living in an old industrial city in the midst of transition is both revealing and inspiring; like our neighbours, we build on the past and strive for something more. We workshopped the tunes for months, chasing different dreams with each.

If we have regrets, it's rarely from trying something new. What keeps us up at night is the shit we wish we had done, not the times we tried and faltered. As a result, this new collection of songs are our most adventurous yet.

In many ways, the band has had a charmed little run, but at the same time we've never been hungrier. We don't get anxious before heading on stage anymore, but the time in between still gives us nerves. Each record is a snapshot of what's meaningful to us at that moment in time. And so, in the mid day sun of our rehearsal room, we strived to find some kind of truth at High Noon.

Arkells met in school. They are a critically acclaimed rock n roll band, known for their classic songwriting, electric live show, and workman like touring ethic.

Jackson Square, the band's first full length LP was released in 2008 to critical and commercial acclaim, garnering the Juno Award for New Group Of The Year in 2010. In 2011, they released Michigan Left, a collection of blue-eyed soul, sing-a-long anthems. In 2012 they won the Juno Award For Group Of The Year, and the CBC Music award for Best Live Band.

Arkells have toured with acts such as Metric, The Tragically Hip, Tokyo Police Club, British Sea Power, Anti-Flag, The Black Crowes.

Their new album, High Noon, was written in Hamilton and produced by Tony Hoffer (Beck, The Kooks, M83). These collection of songs are the band's most unabashed effort yet - politically charged, heart on your sleeve lyrics combined with adventurously modern and throwback production stylings.

All meaty, beaty, big and bouncy, IRONTOM (vocalist Harry Hayes, guitarist Zach Irons, bassist Dane Sandborg, keyboardist Daniel Saslow and drummer Dylan Williams) set themselves apart from the pack by bringing pop clarity to a blend of ‘70s-inspired rock and twisted electronics. They’re introducing themselves with lead single “Be Bold Like Elijah,” which they recently released the official music video for that features professional skater Elijah Berle. The single is from the band’s debut album Partners (Third Chance/Another Century Records), which was produced by AWOLNATION’s Aaron Bruno, and which influential music outlet Buzzbands praised as “a nod to 1970s shredders and latter-day electro-rockers.” The Los Angeles-based band celebrated the album’s release with a prime-time special on DirecTV’s Audience Channel, followed by an arena tour with the Red Hot Chili Peppers. They’ll spend the majority of 2017 touring in support. IRONTOM’s live show centers on the endlessly riveting interplay between Hayes’s outrageous showmanship and the band’s fierce intensity. And both onstage and on record, the band gives off an infectious energy that comes from a brotherhood-like connection. “Even if something’s off and one of us is going through a bad time, when we’re all together it becomes this powerful thing that’s so much bigger than the sum of its parts,” says Hayes. “If people are getting even 10 percent of the joy that we feel from playing together, then they’re definitely getting a whole lot.”
