These guys are kicking off their Summer 2014 tour tomorrow (6/4) and will soon be in town later this month. They will be on the line-up with Diarrhea Planet.
Here’s what the press thinks of them:
"Lee Bains III & the Glory Fires, a four-man band from Alabama, proudly join the Southern-rock tradition of wild-eyed music hitched to serious deliberation. Dereconstructed, the band’s second album, ponders Southern identity in a welter of cranked-up guitars, bristling drums and rasping, hollering vocals. It’s pandemonium with a conscience." - Jon Pareles / NEW YORK TIMES
"If there's one tradition Bains and the Glory Fires unquestioningly uphold, it's the Friday-night custom of burning down the house. They even once got thrown out of a club for being too loud. In Texas. 'We're going to wash ourselves in fire and water,' Bains announces in 'Burnpiles and Swimming Holes.' Dereconstructed is worth the plunge. - Ann Powers / NPR
[4 out of 5 stars] "As pure a shot of adrenaline as a guitar band will release this year…a terrific album." - Michael Hann / THE GUARDIAN
Personally, I like their tunes; they’ve got a dirty classic rock sound that would suit any Southern style bar. If they play as loud as I imagine they should then I have no worries about enjoying the show!
