Arkells “Doubleheader Weekend” at Budweiser Stage in Toronto June 21 & 22

Cross-Canada BIG FEELINGS tour commences October 18 in Halifax, NS

Big Feelings sounds like what the title suggests. “In the studio, this track was a burst of energy and felt like it came together quickly,” said frontman Max Kerman. “When you have something with propulsion, you just hang on and try to steer it the right way. Immediately, we understood it would be unruly, and that the spirit of the song was more about the collective unvarnished expression than any conventional ‘songwriting rules.’ The most satisfying songs are often the ones where we surprise ourselves.”

Kerman will channel feelings of delight as he celebrates the band’s new single, throwing out the first pitch at tonight’s Toronto Blue Jays game at the Rogers Centre. This weekend, Arkells will be appearing at Toronto’s beloved Sonic Boom record store, signing copies of their brand-new covers album Disco Loadout: Volume 1 and a special limited edition run of 7” Big Feelings singles. All are welcome to attend the event: Saturday June 8th, 1:30 – 3:00 PM @ Sonic Boom, 215 Spadina Ave.

In a few short weeks, fans will get to hear the new single live for the first time ever when they let their big feelings out at Arkells’ doubleheader weekend at Budweiser Stage in Toronto on June 21 & 22.
