Earlier this month, The Glorious Sons delivered the resilient brandnew single ‘Mercy Mercy in partnership with Warner Music Canada and ADA along with the visualizer HERE. Sounding both familiar and unprecedented, ‘Mercy Mercy’ displays a remarkably vivid sonic approach alongside, heartfelt lyricism while amplifying the multiplatinum certified band’s more anthemic and unapologetically ambitious side. Available on all major streaming platforms and radio now, the track was the most added song at both Alternative and Active Rock radio last week.
Of the single, lead singer / songwriter Brett Emmons shares, “Mercy Mercy is my own quiet little prayer. It’s me fighting through some twisted process of selfforgiveness and acceptance. It’s a glimpse into my inner dialogue, however hilarious or concerning that might sound. A friend told me that this album sounds like someone at war in their own mind. In that context, I think this song is about faith in oneself, and ones futureeven if the past is always still there.
Produced by Brett Emmons and Frederik Thaae Mercy Mercy is a testament to The Glorious Sons, and in particular Emmons, ability to conquer his own bullshit and let go of the harmful narratives one often serves rent free to their cerebral centre point. A reflection of the struggles one faces, the song dives into the depths of the human experience, exploring themes of redemption, vulnerability, and the relentless pursuit of personal growth. With its spirited chorus, and vast depth of artistic input, ‘Mercy Mercy’ is a sonic journey that demands to be heard.
Hailing from Kingston, Ontario, The Glorious Sons have steadily pushed the boundaries of modern rock music by consistently being deeply personal and wholly universal. Their previous releases have garnered critical acclaim and commercial success earning them multiple JUNO Awards, soldout tours, and a dedicated global fanbase. ‘Mercy Mercy’ marks the next milestone in the band’s career and serves as the first track off their fourth studio album Glory due out this fall.
