The Glorious Sons To Tour U.S. with 10 Years & Otherwise Begining 2/10

A mechanic shop in the corner of a dusty cul-de-sac in the heart of industrial Kingston, Ontario surrounded by dead trees and rusted out machinery is where The Glorious Sons call home.  The band burst on to the scene in 2013 winning the HTZ-FM Rocksearch then launching three consecutive hit singles on to the airwaves with "Mama," "White Noise" and "Heavy."  The latter two of which rose to #2 on the Canadian Rock Charts.  The band was the most played new Canadian artist on rock radio in 2014, and overall only Pearl Jam received more spins at the format last year.  As 2015 begins, they set their sights south of the border with a buzz building across The U.S.  

This week, The Glorious Sons impact Active Rock radio in the U.S. with "Heavy."  The accompanying video can be viewed here:

The band's songs are anchored in recollections of real stories from a blue-collar perspective.  THE UNION, their new release, is a collection of honest and heartfelt songs that touch on the themes of life, love, passion, loss and redemption.  Vocalist / lyricist Brett Emmons has a voice that is uniquely his own, indelibly recognizable with immediacy, that when backed by The Glorious Sons emits the best of timeless rock and roll.  This loud, lush and powerful ensemble is built from the union that is guitarists Jay Emmons and Andrew Young alongside the rhythm section of Adam Paquette (drums) and Chris Huot (bass).

After producing the band's EP Shapeless Art in 2013 with The Trews John-Angus MacDonald, they collaborated once again on a majority of the compositions that make up THE UNION.  A hero of Emmons, he shares, "When you are able to push and pull with a hero of yours as well as listen and be heard, you get perspective on yourself and on your dreams."  In addition to John-Angus' contribution, the band worked with famed producer Gavin Brown on the lead single "Heavy" and the ballad "Lightning."  The album was mixed by Werner F and Gus van Go.

The real power and beauty of these songs comes to life on the live level.  On the upcoming coast-to-coast across the U.S. with 10 years and Otherwise, front man Brett Emmons shares, "The cities are close, some of the women have pretty accents, and even though the beer sucks, the boys and I are really excited to get across the border and play in the States. We have a new single hitting radio and were hot on the heels of our first album release 'The Union.' I cannot wait to show people our dirty, sweaty brand of rock, and I'm sure it'll be the time of our lives."
