Announce Toronto Show on October 20

21 July 2017 (Toronto, ON) – Today, The Glorious Sons release, “Everything Is Alright”, the first single from their highly-anticipated sophomore album, Young Beauties and Fools, out this October via Black Box /Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company.

“Everything Is Alright” marks the first glimpse into the band’s evolved sound: powerful, autobiographical lyrics woven into a soundscape that seamlessly blends rock and alternative elements into undeniable anthems. Speaking about the lyrics of the first single, lead singer Brett Emmons says, “‘Everything Is Alright’ is about feeling isolated, hungover, and trying to be okay with yourself and your mistakes. People tell themselves that everything is going to be alright all the time but I don’t know if that’s necessarily true.”

Written during his most prolific period of songwriting, “Everything Is Alright” is the result of a summer of self-reflection. The Glorious Sons had just taken the Canadian rock scene by storm with six consecutive top 10 radio singles (including their first #1 hit with “The Contender”), had played over 200 shows in Canada alone, were the most played band on the country’s rock radio format, and were nominated for a Juno. “I didn’t really know how to deal with it,” says Emmons. “I got exactly what I wanted and I didn’t know how to handle it. It was a period of reflection and adjusting to the attention.” Emmons spent the summer channeling his introspection into deeply personal songs that have taken The Glorious Sons sound to the next level.

A departure from the songwriting style of their previous releases, Young Beauties and Fools is a collection of songs born out of the mind and heart of Brett Emmons. Beginning as character-based folk songs written on an acoustic guitar, the album offers a unique perspective in the world of rock music: the authentic voice of a 24-year-old songwriter. A demonstration of the growth of the band and an undeniable force of a record, Young Beauties and Fools promises to launch The Glorious Sons into becoming one of the biggest bands in the country.

“Everything Is Alright” follows the January release of their standalone single, “Kill The Lights”, a song written as a gift to their fans, which became the #1 most added song at rock radio in its first week. With over 100,000 singles sold in Canada and over 5.8 million streams, The Glorious Sons are poised for an explosive year as their dedicated fans discover the dynamic songwriting and uniquely crafted sound of Young Beauties and Fools.

The Glorious Sons are currently in the middle of their summer tour with recently added dates supporting Greta Van Fleet. This fall, the band will headline a Canadian tour in support of Young Beauties and Fools beginning in Toronto at The Phoenix on October 20. Tickets go on sale Monday, July 24 at 10am and are available at, Rotate This, and Soundscapes.
