Hailing from Kingston, Canada… The Glorious Sons are Brett Emmons (vocals), Brett’s older brother Jay Emmons (guitar), Chris Koster (guitar), Adam Paquette (drums) and Chris Huot (bass). A high-spirited rock band with blue collar roots, they truly found themselves when Brett quit school in 2013 to join them as lead singer. Subsequent years of hard touring and hard partying — sometimes in places so sketchy, as Brett puts it, “There was no electricity in the building” — provided fuel for the songs which now exist across the band’s catalogue – opening EP ‘Shapeless Art’, debut album ‘The Union’, and debut record for Earache ‘Young Beauties and Fools’.
With ‘The Union’, The Glorious Sons set an immediate bar in Canada – seven consecutive Top 10 rock radio tracks, two SiriusXM Indie Awards (Group of the Year and Rock Group of the Year) and a Juno Award nomination in 2015 for Rock Album of the Year. The recording of ‘Young Beauties and Fools’ took the band to Los Angeles to work with producers Fast Friends (Frederik Thaae, Ryan Spraker and Tom Peyton). 12 days of writing and 14 days of recording later, something special had been born.
‘Young Beauties and Fools’ has taken the band into arenas in Canada. It’s garnered BBC Radio 1 support from Annie Mac and Dan P. Carter. It’s helped the band tour Europe, including the world-famous Reading and Leeds Festivals, and more importantly it’s brought the band to now… this moment. On the cusp of greatness, worldwide.
