Canadian alt-rock group Arkells formed in Hamilton, Ontario in 2006. The band, named after the street on which they would often rehearse, self-released their first EP Deadlines one year later. Their full-length debut Deadlines followed in 2008, earning the guys their first Juno Award for New Group of the Year. They have since released five more albums, dropping a number of singles that have charted in Canada and earning several more Junos over the course of their career. The current line up includes Max Kerman, Mike DeAngelis, Nick Dika, Tim Oxford, and Anthony Carone.
