Published Apr 06, 2018Arkells had a huge hit with "Knocking at the Door" last year, and now the Hamilton pop-rockers are looking to do it again with a brand new track called "People's Champ."
The tune marks the first tease of the band's upcoming fifth studio album and hears the group reflecting on the political climate — take your pick of who the line "the guy currently in charge who only seems to be concerned with creating hysteria and bringing attention and wealth to himself" might be about.
"We're all looking for leadership that is benevolent and generous, and truly has the will of the people in everything they do," frontman Max Kerman said in a statement. "We're comforted every day by the people in our neighbourhood who go the extra mile for their community — especially when they don't have to. We love that person. This song is about the opposite of that: it's about the guy who acts like Robin Hood, but is the farthest thing from it. But that's OK: look around and you'll find people's champs all around ya."
