November 13th 2015: The Glorious Sons at the London Music Hall
Glorious Sons is one of my favourite Canadian bands right now. They’ve got a real mix of sounds but the Doors is probably what shows through most prominently. Their set at the London Music Hall was absolutely fantastic.
The bands set was full of solid sound and excellent lyrics. They played crowd favourites including The Contender and White Noise but also stuff from their back catalogue (ok their catalogue isn’t that deep but you know what I mean). They played a (then) new song and my current favourite, Sometimes on a Sunday as well. Perhaps the most moving and important part of the night however was when the band played a cover of Neil Young’s Rockin’ in the Free World. That evening had also been the night of the Paris attacks on the Eagles of Death Metal concert at the Bataclan. The band dedicated this song to the victims of these attacks. The cover sent shivers up my spine.
Glorious Sons are an amazing up and coming band. If you haven’t checked them out yet I suggest you get to downloading or “vinyling” and see a show on their next tour.
