Arkells Rise Up To Perform ‘Knocking At The Door’

It’s not easy to find a band that rocks harder than Arkells and during their debut iHeartRadio MMVAs performance tonight, rock is exactly what the Hamilton band did. Bringing the party from the crowd to the stage, Arkells’ high energy performance of their single “Knocking At The Door” was accentuated with a wall of sound thanks to backing vocals by The Arkettes and the Northern Soul brass band.

The band was introduced by Much Creator Jus Reign and singer Lights, who is no stranger to the Canadian rockers. Her 2013 album Siberia Acoustic featured the track “Siberia,” a duet between Lights and Arkells frontman Max Kerman, with Lights and Arkells also touring together in the past.

In addition to their incredible performance, Arkells were up for two awards this year, nominated for Best Rock/Alternative Video and nabbing the Fan Fave Video award for “Knocking At The Door.”

The 2017 iHeartRadio MMVAs are hosted by Alessia Cara and Joe Jonas and feature performances from Camila Cabello, Lorde, Imagine Dragons, Julia Michaels, Post Malone, Jazz Cartier, Niall Horan, DNCE, and Arkells. Click here to watch the show now!
