Lee Bains + Glory Fires (aka Lee Bains III & the Glory Fires) is a Birmingham, Alabama based power trio who plays high octane southern rock with a bit of a punk edge. Between Bains' attack on the guitar and the powerful rhythm section provided by brothers Adam and Blake Williamson, the band can pack quite a punch. This was especially true when they kicked their intensity up a notch or two with 2014's Dereconstructed, where they brought their songs to a fuzzy, growling overdrive. They have dialed it back considerably since then, turning partly to a country inspired sound instead. Bains is a skilled songwriter in terms of his melodic phrasing and riffs, as well as his ability to work his politics into his songs with a light touch and observational humor.
