THE GLORIOUS SONS KICK OFF MASSIVE NORTH AMERICAN HEADLINE TOUR NEXT WEEK
*NEW ALBUM, A WAR ON EVERYTHING OUT NOW VIA BLACK BOX/BMG STREAM/DOWNLOAD*
**BAND NOMINATED FOR MULTIPLE IHEARTRADIO AWARDS**
JUNO Award winning rockers The Glorious Sons will kick off their highly anticipated “A War On Everything” North American headlining tour next week! The excursion begins in Pennsylvania on January 16, the sweeping 40+ date tour will hit iconic venues across major cities throughout the U.S. and Canada including stops in New York, Los Angeles, Toronto and Vancouver before wrapping in Montreal on April 11. Joining the tour as special guests are Des Rocs (U.S. dates) and Black Pistol Fire (Canadian dates).
In recent news, The Glorious Sons have been nominated for multiple iHeartRadio Awards, including “Best New Rock/Alternative Rock Artist” and “Rock Song of the Year” for their hit radio anthem “S.O.S. (Sawed Off Shotgun).” The awards will take place at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles on March 29th and will be aired live on FOX stations at 8PM ET as well as broadcast on iHeartMedia stations nationwide.
The upcoming tour coincides with the celebrated release of the band’s brazen and brutally honest new album A War On Everything (9/13 via Black Box/BMG), that features the hit single, “Panic Attack” (#1 on Billboard Mainstream Rock and Mediabase Active Rock Charts).
Tickets are on sale now at https://www.theglorioussons.com/tour.
A daring 14-track collection of stadium-ready, “dirty, sweaty rock” (Alternative Press), rife with devastating moments of vulnerability and searing insight into universal truths about anxiety, sadness and isolation in the 21st century, A War On Everything was produced by Frederik Thaae (Kate Nash, Atlas Genius), and recorded at North of Princess studios in the group’s hometown of Kingston, ON. Billboard hailed the record’s “turbulent guitar licks,” saying, “maybe the self-aware band thinks [rock] is dying, but they might just be resurrecting it.” Stuart Berman for Apple Music said, “‘A War on Everything’ heightens the tension between entertainment and inner torment at the heart of The Glorious Sons’ sound.”

The record marks the start of a new chapter for a band who last year landed their first Billboard #1 with “S.O.S. (Sawed Off Shotgun)”, which held the #1 spot at Active Rock in Canada for 10 consecutive weeks (4 at US Active Rock), spent a record setting 64 weeks on the Canadian Rock Radio Charts while earning CRIA GOLD certification, and was the most-played song on rock radio in the US in 2019 according to Mediabase, firmly planting The Glorious Sons in uncharted territory.
Last September, The Glorious Sons played to a raucous hometown crowd to commemorate the release of A War On Everything, taking over Kingston’s Richardson Memorial Stadium for a 2.5 hour headline set for the over 14,000 fans in attendance. From headlining clubs to arenas and festival dates, 2019 saw the award-winning band play massive shows with The Rolling Stones and Twenty-One Pilots and tour across the U.S. with The Struts.
