Lee Bains And The Glory Fires

Lee Bains III And The Glory Fires


If you ever needed another reason to sneer at that white collar, money-hungry dude who seems to have found happiness in his big back yard and two-story house, today’s your lucky day. Lee Bains III And The Glory Fires are storming out of Alabama, with The Company Man, the first single of what I can assume will be an album brimming with similarly gritty blues-rock stick-it-to-the-manthems. If you dug through Bains’ record collection, you’d probably find a copy of Born to Run, and while his union-leader charisma is powerful, it’s the super dry guitars, heavy back beat, and backwoods fire that really get your blood boiling. Their second album, Deconstructed, roars into town on May 26 via Sub Pop, but you can get quench your “Down with the 1%” thirst by checking out The Company Man as well as the group’s tour dates below.
