Arkells release their brand new studio record, Blink Twice, via Virgin Records. As the band stayed busy making music during the last two years, they always knew they would come out of the pandemic with two distinct records – Blink Once (50M+ streams) and its companion, Blink Twice, which showcases a new collection of songs and collaborations. Blink Twice’s current single “Past Life (ft. Cold War Kids)” sits atop the alternative radio charts in Canada this week.

“We wrote most of these songs during the quiet confusion of the pandemic and always knew that they’d make more sense to us once we played them in the real world,” says frontman Max Kerman. “We are on tour right now and every new song we’ve played feels like a living, breathing thing. The album comes out the day of our London, UK show. It’s our biggest London show ever and after all of the stops and starts of the past few years there is no better city in the world to let these songs start living their own life.”

Blink Twice is about going to new places and seeing the world with fresh eyes. “You can either move through life and grow stubborn, or you can grow curious,” says Kerman. “We’ve never had an album with so many guest artists along for the ride. Everyone from Cold War Kids to Aly & AJ, Tegan and Sara, Lights, Cœur de pirate, Joel Plaskett, Jake Clemons and Wesley Schultz of The Lumineers. At our core we’ll always be a living, breathing soul band. But Blink Twice lets us be that and more.”

Arkells detailed the new album in an exclusive Track By Track via Consequence who calls the new album “a reflective ten-track run…the band turned outward, exploring the world around us with a sense of wonder.”

The most emblematic example of this being The Rally, Arkells’ beloved hometown concert event that’s been hailed as one of the biggest headline shows in the country, with record-breaking attendance.
