    To me they are the great Canadian hope for rock music right now. Great live show. Last time I saw them they did an amazing rocking cover of Fatboy Slim's Praise You. Looking forward to their show in Van in November

    had no idea they were so popular. they added a second show in Winnipeg at a 1800 seat theatre here. I saw them open for the Headstones in Kingston and they were good, but I kind of wrote them off as radio-rock poseurs (could have been a band that green at the time didn't translate well into an arena setting). even declined an offer to meet the band at that show. LOL. may check them out again.

    Their live show is really good, especially White Noise. Check out some non radio songs such as Shapeless Art and Sometimes on a Sunday.

    Totally agree with you.  You tube videos are always good as well.

    I was at that K-Town show too. Hugh was on that night. I thought the glorious sons were ok for an opening act at the time.
    havent seen them since. I guess they are getting bigger.

    They are opening for The Struts in November at a local venue. I enjoy The Struts and I had never heard of these guys. I've listened to some of their stuff the past few days and I'm excited to see them live.

    Have you seen The Struts live?  Saw them before they blew up and will never see them again.  Lead singer reminds me of a cross between Russell Brand and Mark Wahlberg in Rockstar.  Couldn't stand him!  I do want to see Glorious Sons though. They were just through town here at 7th St. Entry but I couldn't make it.  Would have liked to see them in a small venue.

    I saw The Struts a few years ago and the lead singer definitely is a little over the top. I enjoyed the first show and they are playing a small venue again so it should be a good show. I always enjoy a good opening band, I've discovered some of my favorite bands that way.

    our local rock radio station, WMMR has been playing Sawed off Shotgun a lot.  I'm kinda digging it.

    Saw them at the Commodore over the weekend initially kinda as a favour to my brother as he is a big fan. I enjoyed the music on the albums fine enough but wasn't blown away or anything so wasn't overly hyped about the show. They totally exceeded my expectations live and really made me more of a fan than I was before. Very very good live band, well worth checking out.

    They played an ad for them on Stern last week.  Surprised me.

    They’re rolling through my town in a week, can’t wait to see them live again!  Brett Emmons voice is great
