Sons of An Illustrious Father are a trio comprised of Josh Aubin, Lilah Larson, and acclaimed actor Ezra Miller. They self-released their last album, Deus Sex Machina: Or, Moving Slowly Beyond Nikola Tesla, back in June 2018. Now they have shared a new song, simply titled “Sons of An Illustrious Father.” It features string arrangements from Murray A. Lightburn, frontman of Montréal’s The Dears. Listen to it below, followed by the band’s upcoming tour dates, including some shows opening for Priests.

Miller played Barry Allen (aka The Flash) in 2017’s Justice League movie (as well as more briefly in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad). Miller also starred in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, We Need to Talk About Kevin, and The Perks of Being a Wallflower. But Sons of An Illustrious Father is no casual side-project for Miller, he’s known Larson since high school and the band has been active for several years.

A previous press release described the band as such: “Sons of An Illustrious Father were born from an inherent need to represent Otherness within personal identity, continuing the astounding lineage of punk rock icons before them who pushed the boundaries of popular culture via explorations of gender definition and sexual fluidity. Theirs is a sound that leans back towards the outsiderdom and recklessness in music that paved the way for the likes of David Bowie, Iggy Pop, X-Ray Spex, Bikini Kill, and so many more.”
