The Single Is The First CanCon #1 At Active Rock Radio In Almost 2 Years
Toronto, ON – Sirius XM Indie Group Of The Year The Glorious Sons continue their incredible rise to the top with their single “The Contender” (Black Box Recordings) taking the #1 spot on the Active Rock Chart (Mediabase) this past week. The hit song marks their fourth consecutive Top 3 song and back-to-back Top 2 single from their JUNO nominated album The Union making it one of the most successful Canadian debut rock albums in recent years. The band are currently on their first North American headlining tour and kick off the 32-date Canadian tour today in Winnipeg with a second date being added in their hometown of Kingston.
“It’s been three years of hard work and it’s very special for us to have cracked the top spot,” says lead vocalist Brett Emmons. We want to thank all the radio stations and fans across the country for all of their support. We’re very excited to get out across Canada to celebrate it with them starting tonight in Winnipeg.”
“The Contender” marks the first CanCon #1 single at Active Rock radio in almost two years, an accomplishment that reflects the bands hard work and dedication to their craft. The MuchFACTsupported video for “The Contender” premiers today on  with a broadcast premiere to follow in the coming days. The video is a light parody of the infamous Anchorman news team fight scene, injecting some of the band’s own tongue-in-cheek personality and was shot by director Dane Collison, a JUNO and MMVA nominee for his work on SonReal’s “Preach”.

Comprised of vocalist/lyricist Brett Emmons, guitarist Jay Emmons, bassist Chris Huot and drummer Adam Paquette, The Glorious Sons burst on to the Canadian music scene in 2013 with the EP Shapeless Art, produced by John-Angus MacDonald of The Trews. Their first full-length debut album The Union earned them a 2015 JUNO Award nomination for Rock Album of the Year and theband also took home two 2015 Sirius XM Indie Awards for Group of the Year and Rock Group of the Year.

The band again worked with MacDonald on The Union, along with producer Gavin Brown who helmed the eventual singles “Lightning” and “Heavy.” The latter track was most recently heard as the official theme song for the WWE pay-per-view event, “Battleground.”
