The show comes just ahead of the band’s appearance at Download Festival.
2019 saw The Glorious Sons release their feisty new album A War On Everything followed by a lengthy European tour. In addition to their Download Festival appearance on 12 June and a new single Closer To The Sky the band have just announced a club show at London’s Omeara.
Closer To The Sky is “inspired by a hooligan with his shirt off rubbing my brother’s feet, with pupils the size of the moon and his jaw fixed like Bill Murray’s character from Caddy Shack” according to Singer Brett Emmons.
Hailing from Kingston, Ontario, the band gained notoriety across the alt-rock scene culminating in their Young Beauties and Fools album winning the 2018 Juno award for Best Rock Album. Lead track S.O.S. was officially the most-played song at rock radio in the US, and second most-played song at rock radio in Canada in 2019.
They swiftly released their next album A War On Everything which has also been nominated for ‘Rock Album of the Year’ at the 2020 Juno Awards where they will perform on the national television broadcast on 15 March.
This was followed by Panic Attack which spent 2 weeks at #1 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Chart, featured on Spotify’s ‘Rock This’ and Apple Music’s ‘The New Rock’ playlists as well as garnering support from Radio 1’s Daniel P. Carter who previously gave the band one of his coveted live sessions.
