The Glorious Sons
With Special Guests The Blue Stones
Following the release of their brand-new single “Mercy Mercy” two-time JUNO Award-winning rock band The Glorious Sons have announced the Glory Tour, kicking off this September with dates across North America including a stop in Oshawa at the Tribute Communities Centre on Thursday, November 30, 2023. The Glory Tour will feature special guests The Blue Stones for their performance in Oshawa.
Beginning September 6 in Pittsburgh, PA, the North American run will visit 57-cities in both the U.S. and Canada, making stops in Nashville, Boston, New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Edmonton, Calgary, Halifax, Montreal, Ottawa, and more before wrapping in St. Catharines on February 17, 2024. The tour will also feature a special hometown show, with the band taking over Kingston, ON’s Leon’s Centre on December 31 to ring in the New Year. The Glorious Sons’ presale begins today (June 20) at 3pm ET exclusively in the TGS Union App, followed by the Spotify pre-sale on June 21 at 10am local time and the venue’s Backstage Pass Cyber Club pre-sale starting on June 22 at 10am. The public on sale is confirmed for June 23 at 10am local time. A limited number of VIP packages which include a pre-show acoustic set and other exclusive experience and merchandise are available beginning today at 3pm ET.
Earlier this month, The Glorious Sons delivered the resilient brand-new single ‘Mercy Mercy’ in partnership with Warner Music Canada and ADA along with the visualizer HERE. Sounding both familiar and unprecedented, ‘Mercy Mercy’ displays a remarkably vivid sonic approach alongside, heartfelt lyricism while amplifying the multi-platinum certified band’s more anthemic and unapologetically ambitious side. Available on all major streaming platforms and radio now, the track was the most added song at both Alternative and Active Rock radio last week.
Of the single, lead singer / songwriter Brett Emmons shares, “Mercy Mercy is my own quiet little prayer. It’s me fighting through some twisted process of self-forgiveness and acceptance. It’s a glimpse into my inner dialogue, however hilarious or concerning that might sound. A friend told me that this album sounds like someone at war in their own mind. In that context, I think this song is about faith in oneself, and one’s future—even if the past is always still there.”
Produced by Brett Emmons and Frederik Thaae ‘Mercy Mercy’ is a testament to The Glorious Sons, and in particular Emmons, ability to conquer his own bullshit and let go of the harmful narratives one often serves rent free to their cerebral centre point. A reflection of the struggles one faces, the song dives into the depths of the human experience, exploring themes of redemption, vulnerability, and the relentless pursuit of personal growth. With its spirited chorus, and vast depth of artistic input, ‘Mercy Mercy’ is a sonic journey that demands to be heard.
Hailing from Kingston, Ontario, The Glorious Sons have steadily pushed the boundaries of modern rock music – by consistently being deeply personal and wholly universal. Their previous releases have garnered critical acclaim and commercial success earning them multiple JUNO Awards, sold-out tours, and a dedicated global fanbase. ‘Mercy Mercy’ marks the next milestone in the band’s career and serves as the first track off their fourth studio album “Glory” due out this fall.
