The Glorious Sons, renowned for their chart-topping hits and captivating live performances, are set to make waves in the musical landscape with their new album, 'Glory'. Featuring a distinctive roots rock feel, this 10-track project is available today through Warner Music Canada and ADA Worldwide. Alongside the album release, there's also an official music video for the lead single and title track, “Glory”.

Best recognized for their Billboard Mainstream Rock chart-topping singles "S.O.S. (Sawed Off Shotgun)" and "Panic Attack", and a nomination for the 2020 iHeart Media Best New Rock/Alternative Rock Artist, The Glorious Sons continue to push boundaries and exceed expectations. Their latest album, 'Glory', delves deeper into the human psyche, addressing perseverance, personal growth, and the tumultuous path to self-acceptance.

Lead singer Brett Emmons offers insight into the album's inspiration and themes: "Listening to this album feels like one massive inner conflict laid bare for everyone. At times, it's almost too revealing for my comfort, but that's what emerged, so life goes on." Emmons attributes the album's themes to introspection during the pandemic, noting, "It feels like an acknowledgment of the inherent discomfort of being human."

The Glorious Sons' experiences in the music industry have unquestionably shaped their sound. ‘Glory’ demonstrates their maturation, blending the emotional intensity they're famed for with fresh sonic explorations. Emmons says, "‘Glory’ represents another chapter in our story. We might morph into a different band for the next album—it's just how our minds evolve." He underscores that the album moves away from a hit-driven approach, instead aiming to present a cohesive, immersive body of work that resonates with the band's unique taste.

Setting the stage for the introspective journey of the album is its lead single, "Mercy Mercy". This track melds familiar and innovative elements to spotlight the band’s signature sonic style and compelling lyrics. Highlighting their grand and ambitious nature, “Mercy Mercy” gained rapid traction, becoming the most added track at rock radio formats for two consecutive weeks and reaching #3 on Mediabase's Multiple Rock Formats in Canada. It also garners strong backing from Triple A and Alternative stations in the US.

"Glory" is not just the album's title; it encapsulates its essence and holds a central place in the project's narrative. Emmons describes "Glory" as a clarion call for the band, reflecting on their journey and emphasizing that success is fleeting. "I wanted fans to grasp the heights we've reached and to understand that such success is ephemeral. It isn't merely handed to us."

As 'Glory' embarks on its musical voyage, The Glorious Sons are also launching The Glory Tour, a thrilling trek through 57 cities in the U.S. and Canada. Special guests The Blue Stones and The Velveteers will join on select dates, ensuring that the tour offers unforgettable performances that encapsulate the essence of their music.
