What really happened last night? 

For Hamilton rockers Arkells, the honest answer could fill an entire pop album. Their revealing new record, Morning Report, kicks off with a track called Drake's Dad — a true story about getting drunk with Dennis Graham in Memphis. 

(The Toronto rapper's father also makes a cameo in their new video.)

But the record's not just a collection of booze-fuelled adventures. 

Lead singer Max Kerman and guitarist Mike DeAngelis join guest host Rachel Giese to discuss their irreverent look at privilege, break-ups, and modern bromance. They also explain why they wove humour and social awareness into the fabric of their latest collection.

Morning Report comes out this Friday.

After a chance encounter with Drake's father Dennis Graham, Arkells managed to rope the famous father into the video for a song named after him. (Universal Music Canada)
