Canadian rock group The Glorious Sons are just a month away from kicking off their U.S. tour, and are hyping up fans with a new video for "S.O.S. (Sawed Off Shotgun)."
The clip, premiered exclusively on Billboard, was shot at Toronto`s Scotiabank Arena on Nov. 22, 2018, in the midst of their Canadian tour. The band is seen performing the song live with their characteristically infectious energy, cumulating in singer Brett Emmons holding up the microphone for a sea of 10,000 concertgoers to chant the last chorus.
"I think the reason this song is connecting and resonating with people is because it’s about real issues that we all face, it’s a sign of the times," Emmons said of the tune, featured on the band`s Juno award-winning 2017 album, Young Beauties and Fools. "It’s time for the genre to get back to its roots, and I’m not talking about the sonics. Rock n Roll should be dangerous, it should be rebellious, and has to start making people think again."
"S.O.S." also gave the rockers their first No. 1 on a U.S. Billboard chart, topping the Mainstream Rock Songs airplay list dated Jan. 19.
The Glorious Sons` headlining U.S. tour starts Feb. 12 in Cambridge, Massachusetts. See the full list of dates here
