High Noon is the third full-length studio album by Canadian rock band Arkells. It was announced on May 13, 2014 that the album would be released on August 5, 2014. The album sold 5,200 copies in its first week and debuted at on the Canadian Albums Chart. It is the band's highest position on that chart in their history. By September 2015, High Noon had sold over 40,000 copies and was certified a Gold Record. The album is a longlisted nominee for the 2015 Polaris Music Prize.

Their new album, High Noon, was written in Hamilton and produced by Tony Hoffer (Beck, The Kooks, M83). These collection of songs are the band’s most unabashed effort yet – politically charged, heart on your sleeve lyrics combined with adventurously modern and throwback production stylings. Max Kerman - Guitar, Vocals Mike DeAngelis - Guitar, Vocals Anthony Carone - Keyboard, Vocals Nick Dika - Bass Tim Oxford - Drums. Listen to Arkells' High Noon album stream

High Noon showcases Arkells' lofty ambitions, and while it might not be their defining record it's another intriguing step in their evolution.

Still, High Noon is a fairly exceptional album, particularly as it doesn't have a bonafide Canadian sound while not necessarily making market concessions to the States or a worldwide audience. Arkells seem to exist solely on a plateau of their own, and that's what makes them so darn special. Who knows? Perhaps with just the right amount of luck, and with the right radio push, this band might no longer just be collecting Juno Awards and other accolades, but may have a Grammy or two (or three) to put on their mantle.
