New Album 'Young Beauties and Fools' Out Now
"...The Glorious Sons deliver big, melodic rock that swaggers and sneers in equal measure." - KERRANG!
"Loving this new single" - Clara Amfo, BBC RADIO 1
"I'm really excited about this band. The album is SO GOOD!" - Daniel P. Carter, BBC RADIO 1 ROCK SHOW
THE GLORIOUS SONS have released a brilliant version of Kanye West's "Runaway". The track was filmed at Fiction Studios and is the first of a series of stripped down videos to be released over the coming weeks.
"[Guitarist Chris] Koster is a gigantic Kanye fan and he's been covering the song for years. We played it in a church once together, and my voice just kind of worked with the song. I can remember listening to My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy and watching the short film all the time in university. It is by far my favourite Kanye album. I had never heard rap sound like that before. In my opinion, this album is one of the most important of the 21st century, and Runaway is one of the most perfect pop songs every written." - Brett Emmons (vocals)

The band recently released their phenomenal new album, 'Young Beauties and Fools' via Earache Records. The band will be bringing their captivating live show back to the UK from next week for three headline shows before returning in the summer for the legendary Reading and Leeds festivals.
"You don't know what you're going to get night to night from us," says Jay Emmons (guitar). "It's something you have to see - we try to keep it interesting and powerful." "It's also an inch from either side of falling off the tracks every single night," adds Brett.

They previously released a video for lead single "Everything Is Alright". "It's nice getting your hands dirty once in a while. The video was a quite enjoyable and painless experience, other than getting smashed in the face with tomatoes. Thank you to our director Colin and his crew for the outstanding work and fun day." says frontman Brett.
