The Glorious Sons Declare 'A War On Everything' With Incisive New Album, Out September 13th On BMG/Black Box

ANNOUNCEMENT COMES AMID NATIONAL US TOUR W/ THE STRUTS WITH UPCOMING SHOWS IN NYC, DC + MORE

Today, The Glorious Sons announce their incisive new album ‘A War On Everything’ - out September 13th on BMG/Black Box - a daring 14-track collection of stadium-ready, “dirty, sweaty rock” (Alternative Press) rife with devastating moments of vulnerability and searing insight into universal truths about anxiety, sadness and isolation in the 21st century. 

Produced by Frederik Thaae (Kate Nash, Atlas Genius) and recorded at North of Princess studios in the group’s hometown of Kingston, ON, ‘A War On Everything’ marks the start of a new chapter for a band who in 2019 alone landed their first Billboard #1, played massive shows with The Rolling Stones and Twenty-One Pilots, and toured with The Struts - and that’s just the beginning.

The Glorious Sons also release their new song “Pink Motel” today. On “Pink Motel,” frontman Brett Emmons ruminates on a failed relationship strained by material things - or lack thereof. “I wrote this song in response to my ex claiming ‘we don’t have anything’ as she looked around my shitty apartment,” he says. “‘Pink Motel’ was my last effort to remind her how meaningless everything was if we couldn’t get back to just her and I.” 

Listen to “Pink Motel” here.

“I think these days we all walk around over-stimulated, over-dependant, addicted, yearning for some magic way to isolate ourselves from the world and still be loved,” says Brett, and those themes penetrate the entirety of the album.

The Glorious Sons’ dangerous brand of rock and roll is on full display on ‘A War On Everything.’ From the kinetic intensity of “Panic Attack” to the frenzied “The Ongoing Speculation Into The Death Of Rock and Roll,” the album bursts with bulletproof energy and trenchant, brutally honest lyrics.

Loudwire named The Glorious Sons an up-and-coming rock band “you need to hear,” and Billboard has praised the band’s “infectious energy.” Their most recent single “Panic Attack” is currently #1 on the Canadian Active Rock chart and in the top 15 at US Active Rock. Their breakout 2017 single “S.O.S. (Sawed Off Shotgun)” held the #1 spot at US Active Rock for 4 consecutive weeks earlier this year and remains one of the most played tracks at rock radio.

The Glorious Sons will tour extensively behind ‘A War On Everything,’ including forthcoming dates with The Struts at New York’s Pier 17, DC’s 9:30 club and more. They’ll play Osheaga next month, and in September, they’ll headline a hometown show at Kingston’s 14,000-cap Richardson Memorial Stadium.
