Kingston rock band The Glorious Sons have had a “glorious year,” touring Canada twice with Head of the Herd, and seeing their songs “Mama” and “ White Noise” getting airplay across the country.The Glorious Sons play Sidelines in Coaldale, March 21. Photo submitted

 They return to Southern Alberta, March 21 to play Sidelines in Coaldale on their first headlining tour.

“That  was a different tour because were a grimy working class band and they’re kind of the opposite end of the spectrum,” said lead vocalist Brett Emmons.

“We went to Vancouver and back again with them. It was pretty good, so we’ll keep in touch with them, ” continued  Emmons who joined the Glorious Sons a few months after his brother and  lead guitarist  Jay Emmons, bassist Chris Huot and drummer Adam Paquette formed the core of the band.

“ I was in Halifax, going to school, well not really going to school but trying out my acoustic stuff when the boys gave a me a call, so I came back to Kingston” he continued.

 They released their debut EP “ The Shapeless Art” in September, which has been a hit with fans and radio as “Mama” and “White Noise” get a lot of airplay.

 He enjoys being in a band with his brother.
“It’s pretty good. We’re best friends so  we can create more together. We can have discussions and fight a little bit and then forget about it,” he continued.

 He said the band is working on the follow-up — a full length CD that should be released some time between July and September.
“ All four of us are songwriters. If you listen to the EP, it is all over the place. We don’t really have a sound. We don’t want to be pigeonhole ourselves. It’s rock and roll. So the CD will be more of the same stuff,” he said.

 He is excited about playing Southern Alberta again.
“It will be high energy.”
 “It is high energy rock and roll,” he said.
Toronto band Teenage Kicks and the Glorious Sons play Sidelines in Coaldale, March 21. at 9 p.m. Doors open at 8 p.m. Tickets cost $15 in advance.
