The Glorious Sons will release new album Glory on September 6.

Vocalist/songwriter Brett Emmons said: “How do I feel about Glory? I’m glad it’s done. And I’m glad I still like the songs. It was one of those classic times in a band’s career where you have that awkward choice to either let go, or hold on as tightly as you can. We chose the latter. Every detail on this album was important to me— and though I can’t control how people will receive it, I did my best to control how kindly I look back on the music and the process. That was the most important thing this time around. When things don’t come easily, how do you respond? We were gritty as fuck, and we represented ourselves to the truest form possible. I guess that’s all just a long form way of describing growth. So there you go. It sounds like growth to me.”

Code Orange – The Above

Tim Saccenti

Code Orange will release new album The Above on September 29 through Blue Grape Music.

Jami Morgan said: “We wanted the album to be able to wash over you with melody, aggression, and joy, but it was of equal importance that the closer you look, the more you are rewarded. It was to feel rooted in the “analogue” world, but with threads of digital reality binding things together. We wanted the sound and even the recording process itself to reflect that edict, so we enlisted Steve Albini at Electrical Audio to get the most real and raw version of the band possible, even recording us all at once in a room together for the first time in our career.”
