Kingston, Ontario outfit The Glorious Sons are following in the fine tradition of their hometown, writing blue collar, soul-soaked rock anthems, descending from the likes of fellow Limestone City heroes The Tragically Hip and The Headstones. Today, we’ve got a look at the new video for their provocative single, “Sometimes On A Sunday.”

"It took us three months to assemble four minutes of footage,” The Glorious Sons’ vocalist Brett Emmons told Complex. “I asked our director Dane Collison to go out and find footage of struggle, violence, and chaos, because I wanted viewers to have to watch the things that happen in our world that most of us chose to ignore.”

Emmons was hoping an intense visual treatment would evoke something a little deeper in the audience, as opposed to a standard performance video. For a song that’s concerned with finding existential meaning, a stark black and white visual, peppered with some borderline-disturbing archival footage, is a fitting counterpart. “The message in this song isn’t as black and white as equating God with man,” he added. “It is about power, materialism and the things we do. The way we feel as human beings, as we strive to achieve some sense of heaven.”
