The Glorious Sons land #1 spot on Billboard rock chart & premiere new video for "S.O.S (Sawed Off Shotgun)"



Today, The Glorious Sons reveal the official music video for their breakout song “S.O.S. (Sawed Off Shotgun),” which just landed at #1 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Songs chart. Billboard also premiered the video, praising its “characteristically infectious energy.” Watch the video for “S.O.S. (Sawed Off Shotgun)” here:

The video was filmed in Toronto at the Scotiabank Arena during the band’s headline tour this past November with nearly 10,000 fans in attendance. “We spent most of the last year on the road, and we really didn’t have much time to make a scripted video. There were a couple of other ideas bouncing around, but I think in the end this video is the best representation of who The Glorious Sons are and what we are about,” singer Brett Emmons said.

“S.O.S. (Sawed Off Shotgun)” comes from The Glorious Sons’ sophomore studio album ‘Young Beauties and Fools,’ which won the 2018 Juno award for Best Rock Album. Following its release in October 2017, the band slugged it out on the road making fans the old fashioned way, touring across the US and building a devout fanbase with its grassroots approach. ‘Young Beauties and Fools’ has propelled the Canadian quintet into huge success in the US - “S.O.S. (Sawed Off Shotgun)” has climbed the Spotify Viral 50 charts, hitting #36 globally and #15 in the US, it went #1 on the U.S. Active Rock spins and audience charts, cracked the top 30 at Alternative radio and has racked up over 7 million total streams in the U.S. Watch frontman Brett Emmons’ open letter about “S.O.S.

The Glorious Sons are about to embark on an extensive US headlining tour kicking off at Boston’s Sinclair on February 12th and including stops at Brooklyn’s Rough Trade, LA’s Roxy Theater and more. Full tour routing below.
