Hailing from Kingston, Ontario, two-time JUNO Award-winning rock band, The Glorious Sons dropped the unexpected new song Daylight today, released independently by the group and distributed via award-winning label Black Box. Produced by The Glorious Sons and written by Brett Emmons, Jay Emmons, Chris Koster, Adam Paquette and Josh Hewson, Daylight displays the unpredictable unmitigated kind of sonic catharsis fueled by emotion and unfiltered intensity that offers an awakening to the mind and body and invites audiences to wholly experience the band’s palpable energy.
The dynamically flourishing track is the first release from the chart-topping self-aware band in 2021 and serves as a stark reminder that if you think you know what to expect from The Glorious Sons, think again.
“I think a lot of people are hoping to hear the follow up to S.O.S.,” shares lead singer Brett Emmons. “It’s not here. Nor do I think it needs to be. We were more interested in making something that sounds energized than organized. It’s by far the closest representation to how the band feels performing a set in a club. But mainly, the important thing to remember here, is that spiritually, the band needed to make music completely for ourselves and that’s what we did.”
