Arcana Kings, out of British Columbia and Saskatchewan, Canada, formed in 2015, and have never looked back with their arena rock, punk pop sound and bagpipes as their secret weapon. Their new single and video, “Soldier On” is already gaining a mass amount of attention and can be experienced now on all streaming platforms and YouTube.
Arcana Kings lineup consists of Johnny McCuaig (lead vocals, bagpipes, rhythm guitar) James Picton (lead guitarist), Allan Morrison (rhythm guitarist, vocals), Kevin Kyle (bass) and Graham Templeman (drums).
McCuaig says, “Soldier On” is a song written by Arcana Kings and members of the Soldier On program. The lyrics come straight from soldiers suffering with PTSD. We asked them to put their thoughts and feelings on paper and the end result is our tune, “Soldier On”. The song was written in hopes of raising awareness to programs like Soldier On (https://www.soldieron.ca/) and hopefully raising some money for the charity.”
“Soldier On” was recorded and produced in Saskatoon at Reddoor Recording with Producer Ryan Andersen (Nickelback, Theory of a Deadman) and mixed by producer, engineer and mixer Mike Fraser (Metallica, Aerosmith, Led Zeppelin).
