“We’ve developed a real bond with these communities over the years so it was important to us to come back,” frontman Max Kerman said.

“Sometimes, when we get out of the biggest cities, we find the rowdiest crowds. Those shows and that energy can be the most memorable.”

They will be joined by Nashville band Coin for all six shows.

The Arkells will also play a show in Halifax on Oct. 26 at the Scotiabank Centre with Mother Mother.

The Arkells have quickly become one of Canada’s best-known rock bands since forming in 2006.

They have released five albums and won multiple Juno Awards, including the 2019 Rock Album of the Year for Rally Cry.
