Ontario, CA-based alt-rock band Arkells recently released their new track, “Knocking At The Door,” which was a surprise release pulled off by the band, and now they’re following that up with the release of the official video. I recently had the pleasure of checking Arkells out live when they swept through Boston on a stop with Frank Turner, and if you haven’t listened to them yet, get on it. These guys are the real deal.

“This is our most fierce song yet. So we needed a fierce video. We recruited our talented friends SHANE&mark to make the video and they nailed it. Our audience has embraced this new tune, and it’s a thrill for the band to release a video that further elevates the song,” says frontman Max Kerman.

“All the old Arkells fans like it because I scream a bit, and new Arkells fans like it because it’s also kinda modern and poppy. We like it because it’s the most adventurous and exciting thing we’ve done yet. Who knew we could have such a fun ride with one surprise song.”

Co-inciding with the launch of the regular baseball season, “Knocking At The Door” is featured in a new Budweiser/Toronto Blue Jays themed commercial running now.
