Following on from their recently released acoustic album Campfire Chords, Arkells have just released their first-ever holiday song Pub Crawl.

The accompanying video only features frontman Max Kerman (due to lockdown restrictions) and takes viewers on a journey with a bit of a twist from his bandmates and a nod to Home Alone. Watch and listen below.

The Mark Myers directed video stems from a ‘12 Pubs of Christmas’ style tradition – a time the band reconnects with friends and family and gets into the holiday spirit.

Max comments on the video:

Like anything in 2020, making a music video is an exercise in experimentation and creativity, If I couldn’t party with my boys during Pub Crawl, making 50 different life size cut outs of them was the next best thing.

Before its release, Arkells leaked Pub Crawl to various pubs and bars across Canada in order to encourage fans to visit and support their local watering holes (following proper COVID guidelines and with social distancing measures in place).
