The Glorious Sons to perform in Cranbrook in the fall

  • Jun. 22, 2023 9:20 a.m.

The Glorious Sons, a two-time JUNO Award-winning rock band, will be performing in Cranbrook as part of their Glory Tour, which will kick off this September with dates across North America.

The Glory Tour, in support of their latest record ‘Mercy Mercy,’ will also feature special guests The Blue Stones when the Tour visits Western Financial Place on Thursday, November 17, 2023.

Beginning September 6, 2023 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, Cranbrook, Edmonton, Calgary, Montreal, Ottawa, and more before wrapping in St. Catharines on February 17, 2024.

The Glorious Sons’ pre-sale is available now exclusively in the TGS Union App, followed by the Spotify pre-sale on June 21, 2023 at 10 am MT. The public sale is confirmed for June 23, 2023 at 10 am MT. A limited number of VIP packages which include a pre-show acoustic set and other exclusive experiences and merchandise are also available now.

Earlier this month, The Glorious Sons delivered the resilient brand-new single ‘Mercy Mercy’ in partnership with Warner Music Canada and ADA.

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.

“Mercy Mercy is my own quiet little prayer,” said Brett Emmons, the group’s lead singer/songwriter. “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.”

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.
