We had the pleasure of interviewing The Glorious Sons over Zoom video!

The Glorious Sons, renowned for their chart-topping hits and captivating live performances, are poised to make an impact on the musical landscape once again with the release of their new album, 'Glory'. With a distinct roots rock feel, the 10-track project is out now via Warner Music Canada and ADA Worldwide.

Best known for their twoBillboard Mainstream Rockchart-topping singles "S.O.S. (Sawed OffShotgun)" and "Panic Attack," as well as being nominated for the 2020 iHeart Media Best NewRock/Alternative Rock Artist, The Glorious Sons have consistently pushed boundaries and defied expectations. With their latest album, 'Glory', they delve even deeper into the human experience, exploring themes of perseverance, personal growth, and the tumultuous journey of self-acceptance.

Lead singer Brett Emmons shares his perspective on the album's inspiration and themes: "When I listen back to this album, it kind of presents itself as one big inner struggle puked out for everyone to hear. Sometimes it actually embarrasses me quite a bit—but that’s what was in there, so—life goes on, I guess."He attributes the album's themes to spending time alone and confronting his inner thoughts during the pandemic: "It kind of feels like the acknowledgment of that annoying pain of what it means to be human."

The Glorious Sons' journey in the music industry has undeniably influenced the evolution of their sound.‘Glory’ showcases their growth, maintaining the emotional intensity they are known for while exploring new sonic territories. Emmons reflects,"’Glory’ is just another chapter in what we’re doing—I’m sure we’ll be another band next album, it’s kind of just the way our minds work."He emphasizes the album's departure from the immediate hit-seeking approach, instead focusing on creating a body of work that breathes and takes its time, allowing the band's personal taste to shine through.

The album's lead single, "Mercy Mercy," set the tone for the introspective journey. The song combines elements of familiarity and innovation to showcase the band’s distinct sonic style and poignant lyrics, while highlighting their anthemic and ambitious nature.“Mercy Mercy” quickly became a contender, it was the most added track at rock radio formats for two consecutive weeks, reached #3 on Mediabase's Multiple Rock Formats in Canada, and continues to receive strong support from Triple A and Alternative stations in the US.

"Glory" not only stands as the album's title but also embodies its essence, playing a pivotal role in the project's narrative. Emmons describes it as" a rally cry to the band," a reflection on their journey, a surrendering of emotions, and a reminder that success is not a guarantee. He notes, "I wanted people to know how good we had it, and remind them that this [success] doesn’t last forever. It’s not just something that’s owed to us."
