Hamilton, Ontario's Arkells are set to hit the road in October. The band will tour across Canada in support of Matt Mays & El Torpedo. . This follows a summer of touring and festival appearances that saw the band performing with acts like Alexisonfire, Ladyhawk, Tokyo Police Club and Bedouin Soundclash.

The five-piece is gearing up for the release of their debut full length Jackson Square on October 28th via Dine Alone Records. Two songs from the album, "John Lennon" and "Oh The Boss Is Coming" can be streamed at the band's MySpace page.

Given the popularity around here of another Springsteen inspired, soulful independent rock band, you folks may want to get in on this.
