Lee Bains III & The Glory Fires.

Today we meet the Birmingham, Alabama-based rock band Lee Bains III + The Glory Fires. This is loud rock 'n' roll that draws from Southern rock, punk, and, believe it or not, gospel.

Bains' new album, Dereconstructed, his first for Sub Pop, is a musical treatise on what it means to be a Southerner in the new century, being true to your history and your aspirations.
