Arkells shared the video for their new song “Drake’s Dad” from their highly anticipated new album, “Morning Report”, out next Friday, August 5 via Last Gang Records/eOne in the U.S. and Universal Music Canada. The video, which features Drake’s dad himself, premiered via Consequence of Sound, who commented that, “the song itself incorporates a distinctly Southern groove that feels right at home alongside visuals of Arkells getting up to all kinds of mischief.” The song is based on an actual experience frontman Max Kerman had. “Last summer I was on a road trip with my best friends through the American south, and in the magic of the night, we happened to meet Drake’s dad – Dennis Graham – in a Memphis bar,” Max said. “He couldn’t have been more gracious, especially given that there were 16 of us, drunk on friendship and cheap American beer. This chance encounter inspired this song.” “The narrative carries on to Nashville for some more shenanigans, and finishes with us all crawling back in to bed back home in Hamilton, very tired and missing our girls,” Max continued. “I love writing about the joy of friendship, and the lighthouse that home can be while you’re out lost at sea. ‘Drake’s Dad’ is Elton John meets Kanye West. Southern groove, classic piano changes, 808s, and a gospel choir.” It only seemed fitting when the time came to film the video that the crew head back to Memphis and figure out a way to get Drake’s dad in it. Arkells are thrilled to announce that they will hit the road this fall for a run of North American tour dates in support of Frank Turner, in addition to a select number of headlining dates. The band is currently on tour where they made first time appearances at Bonnaroo and Firefly Music Festival. The band will also be making a first time appearance at this year’s Lollapalooza music festival and will perform at an official Lollapalooza After Party with The Struts tonight at The Bottom Lounge.
