Published Oct 19, 2018Today marks the release of Arkells' fifth studio LP Rally Cry, and to keep the good times rolling, the group have now mapped out plans for an accompanying Canadian tour in 2019.
With support from Lord Huron, Arkells will play 11 total dates across the country in February, kicking things off on the West Coast with shows in Vancouver, Victoria and Kelowna.
From there, the bands will head east towards stops in Edmonton, Saskatoon, Calgary and Winnipeg, before four final dates in Kitchener, Ottawa, Toronto and Montreal.
UPDATE (11/6, 6:30 p.m. EDT): The Edmonton concert has now been moved to January 31 from February 7. You can see the revised schedule below.
Tickets for all tour dates go on sale October 26, and Exclaim! is giving you a chance to win some stubs and other great prizes with our Rally Cry contest.
One grand prize winner will come away with a one-of-a-kind shirt worn by vocalist Max Kerman, a copy of Rally Cry on vinyl and a pair of tickets to any show on the tour. Secondary prize winners could pick up a pair of tickets for every other date on the itinerary.
For fans in Toronto, Arkells are celebrating Rally Cry's release today with a pop-up event at Union Station, where they will also be collecting gently used winter coats for donation to New Circles' GLOW (Gently Loved Outfits to Wear), Toronto's largest clothing bank.
