Let’s call Arkells’ new toll-free number: 1 (800) 426 8856

When I spoke to Arkells’ singer Max Kerman backstage at the Skookum Music Festival in Vancouver last month, he was very excited about what the band had planned for the release of their new album, Rally Cry, which is due October 19. He wouldn’t say what was coming up other than “it will be cool.”

This week a billboard appeared at 374 Smith Street in Buffalo.

What will you get if you call 1 (800) 426 8856? The band’s new single, “American Screams,” which is a critical look at what’s happening in the US right now. Now the Buffalo location makes sense, right?

Go on. Give ’em a call.
