Arkells Support Hamilton-Area Refugess



If you’ve been paying attention at all you may have figured out the Arkells have become one of the biggest rock bands in Canada in the last year or so.

They seem to understand that with this great new power they’ve also got great new responsibility.

When they played their big hometown stadium show this past June in Hamilton they also used it as an opportunity to raise funds for Refuge Hamilton Centre for Newcomer Health.

I spoke to lead singer Max Kerman about the reasons why they did this for Samaritanmag.
