The Glorious Sons Investigate “The Ongoing Speculation Into The Death Of Rock And Roll”

Listen To The Newest Song From Forthcoming Album ‘A War On Everything’ (9/13, BMG/Black Box)
“Maybe the self-aware band thinks the genre is dying, but they might just be resurrecting it” -BILLBOARD


Who said rock is dead? Today, The Glorious Sons release the next single off their bracing new record 'A War on Everything' (9/13, BMG/Black Box) called "The Ongoing Speculation Into The Death of Rock And Roll." Billboard loves the songs “turbulent guitar licks,” saying, “maybe the self-aware band thinks the genre is dying, but they might just be resurrecting it.” Listen here:

A witty jab at the genre's death-knell that pervades music headlines every couple of years, the song is a guitar-heavy rejection of that very idea. Following the recent release of heartbreaking track "Pink Motel,” this rebellious new track is emblematic of the "dirty, sweaty rock" (Alternative Press) the group has become known for.

"We all start in a bedroom," says frontman Brett Emmons. "We all would do it for free. Mainly, I think we do it for the freedom. This song is kind of a love letter for people who were completely robbed of their freedom for doing something they loved.”

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 on its fifth week at #1 on the Canadian Active Rock chart, and it currently sits in the top 10 at US Active Rock and in the top 40 at US Alternative. 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 play select shows in Canada through the fall before embarking on a European tour in November. The band will announce additional North American dates soon.
