Full text of the news release follows:

Following the release of their new tracks Daylight, Young King and the top-10 radio hit Hold Steady, two-time Juno Award-winning rock band The Glorious Sons have announced The Unfinished Business Tour, which kicked off in the US in December 2021 and continues in Canada starting in April 2022. The Glorious Sons will play the Sault Community Theatre Centre on Sunday, May 29, 2022.

From their very start, The Glorious Sons have achieved the near impossible by sounding both familiar and unprecedented, offering a bold new idea of what it means to be a rock ‘n’ roll band in the modern era. Fronted by brothers Brett and Jay Emmons, the Kingston, Ont.-based quintet have resolutely manifested all of rock ‘n’ roll’s most positive principles – creativity and adventure, energy and expression, unbridled individuality and spirit of community.

The past decade saw the band unleash three remarkable studio albums fuelled by immense ambition and strikingly emotive songcraft, their stadium-sized hooks ringing out with an ardent, impassioned spirit that earned them two #1 rock airplay smashes in the US and 13 consecutive top 10 rock radio hits in Canada.

“I truly believe that, to use the old cliché, rock ‘n’ roll will never die,” says lead singer-songwriter Brett Emmons. “It’s not just a sound anymore. It’s more of an attitude, a freedom of expression that people will always believe in.”

Founded in 2011, the Glorious Sons immediately caused a commotion with their indelible brand of 21st century rock ‘n’ roll, born of classic elements but made fresh through the band’s spirited musical slant and raw-boned songwriting. The band proved as imaginative as they were motivated, recording and touring near non-stop in an effort to drive their music ever further. 2014’s debut album, The Union, earned them breakthrough success as well their first Juno Award nomination for Rock Album of the Year, fuelled in part by such singles as Heavy, Lightning and The Contender, the latter of which proved the band’s first ever #1 at Canadian Rock radio.
