Arkells Perform "Come to Light" 

Published on Monday, Jan. 12, 2015

Hamilton, Ontario rock band Arkells know what it’s like to try and earn attention as young musicians. The group met in school in 2006. Fast-forward, and they’ve released three killer albums, copped two JUNO Awards, and toured relentlessly to win fans with their massive riffs and heart-on-sleeve lyrics.


All of which made Arkells’ vocalist and guitarist Max Kerman an ideal judge for TD and CBC Music’s Rock Your Campus contest. One of the prizes? Opening for Arkells at a concert produced for the winning act’s school.


Arkells flew in to appear while in the midst of a European and U.K. tour, but you’d never know it from the band’s huge on-stage energy as they rip through “Come to Light.”
