The Glorious Sons have resolutely manifested all of rock ‘n’ roll’s most positive principles from their very start – creativity and adventure, passion and truth, energy and expression, individuality and spirit of community. Now, after a four-year journey fraught with multiple stops and starts, theKingston, ON-based band returns with Glory, an album co-produced by Brett Emmons and Frederik Thaae, that fully captures the depth and breadth of their vast artistic vision. Fired by a remarkably vivid sonic approach and raw, heartfelt lyricism, stellar new songs burn bright within candescent emotional truths that are somehow both deeply personal and wholly universal.
“I think that all this time has allowed us to very slowly hone in on something that just feels a little bit bigger,” says lead singer-songwriter Brett Emmons. “Something a bit more anthemic and celebratory.”
From their very start, The Glorious Sons have achieved the near impossible by sounding both familiar and unprecedented, offering a bold new idea of what it means to be a rock ‘n’ roll band in the modern era. Now, with Glory, The Glorious Sons have pushed themselves to the brink to create something meaningful, true, and undeniably their own.
“We spent a long, long time on the hamster wheel when we started out,” Brett Emmons says,“and now, I want to just take things as they come. For the first time in my life, I feel like the way people receive it matters less to me than ever before. It’s not that I don’t care what people think but I just know in my heart that we did everything we could.”
