The Glorious Sons win rock album of the year at Juno awards

THE GLORIOUS SONS are excited to celebrate winning Rock Album Of The Year at the JUNO Awards,  Canada. The awards are the Canadian music industries most prestigious recognition of excellence in recorded music.

The band have previously released a brilliant version of Kanye Wests 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.

“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 ever written.” – Brett Emmons (vox)

“You don’t know what you’re going to get night to night from us,” says Jay. “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.
