ROCK | Arkells


This 5-piece Canadian rock band feels both throwback and modern. Pumping guitars and 4-to-the-floor beats dominate, while the band's flair comes through the high-energy live performance. Arkells is striving to create something more cinematic and grand. A few days before the release of its third and latest effort, "High Noon" (2014), the band collaborated the National Orchestra of Canada and the result was nothing short of impressive. Since its freshman release in 2008, "Jackson Square," the band signed to Dine Alone Records and has won two Juno awards.

Arkells plays Friday, April 24, at Montage Music Hall, 50 Chestnut Street. 7 p.m. $12-$14.,
