EXCLUSIVE: The Glorious Sons Go Unplugged for 'A War on Everything' and 'Closer to the Sky'

Watch the Canadian rockers' acoustic performance

March 10, 2020

The Glorious Sons conquered their native Canada first, but the U.S. wasn’t truly aware of what was melting ice up north until January 19, 2019. If that seems specific, it’s because it’s the date the band went to #1 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock chart with their anthem “S.O.S. (Sawed Off Shotgun).”

Frontman Brett Emmons and company got right to work after that victory and went back to #1 with “Panic Attack,” the lead single from 2019’s A War on Everything. The Glorious Sons are no longer a secret in the states as evidenced by the bigger crowds and brighter stage they’re bringing with them on their current tour.

On any given night on the road, Emmons presides over an enthusiastic audience that knows all of his painful words, sacrificing his soul so the whole room can be cleansed. And he has a pretty good time as well. Now it’s time to strip down a pair of those new songs in an exclusive unplugged performance.

The title track, much like the brutally honest “Pink Motel,” wants to blow up all the outside influences that can attack love, as RADIO.COM noted in our original album review. Emmons, flanked by brother Jay Emmons and Chris Koster on guitars and harmonies, also treated us to “Closer to the Sky.” It’s the band’s latest single and we can’t wait to hear what’s next.

Watch the performances in the video above and catch The Glorious Sons on tour all spring and summer.
