The Glorious Sons Release “The Ongoing Speculation Into The Death of Rock And Roll”

Published on: 2019/08/19 - in Entertainment

Kingston’s The Glorious Sons have released the next track off their forthcoming new record ‘A War on Everything’ out September 13 via Black Box, called “The Ongoing Speculation Into The Death of Rock And Roll.”

Described as ‘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’, Billboard wrote that “maybe the self-aware band thinks the genre is dying, but they might just be resurrecting it.”

Frontman Brett Emmons said about the song: “We all start in a bedroom. 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.”

The Sons’ 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 onto the #1 spot at Active Rock in Canada for 10 consecutive weeks (4 at US Active Rock) earlier this year and remains one of the most played tracks at rock radio.

This fall, the band will perform select shows in Canada that includes a hometown concert for 14,000+ fans at Richardson Stadium here in Kingston before launching a European tour in November.

And here’s your chance to attend a special event being hosted by the band to celebrate the launch of ‘A War on Everything’ in September:
