Following the critical success of their debut album, There Is A Bomb In Gilead, and lighting up music venues across the nation for the better part of the year with their incendiary live shows, Lee Bains III & The Glory Fires will be releasing their brand new digital single Total Destruction To Your Mind later this month.
Total Destruction To Your Mind is a cover of '70s psych-soul legend Swamp Dogg, and as a bonus, the Birmingham, AL foursome revisites the title track from There Is A Bomb In Gilead for a new studio version with even more impassioned fervor than the original. Both songs were produced by The Glory Fires and producer/musician Jim Diamond at Ghetto Recorders in Detroit.

It won’t be easy finding a recent set transmitting more passion or generating more soul-burnin’ BTU’s than the debut disc of this Birmingham-based four-piece. Bains’ so aptly-named band serves up a combustible blend of Southern rock and soul, the bandleader’s writing tapping deep roots as he throws down vocally with an authority well beyond his years. There’s not one slouch among the tracks on Gilead but the ballads “Reba” and “Righteous, Ragged Songs” and the raver “The Red, Red Dirt Of Home” jump out. This one ought to make more than a few “Best Of” lists this year. – Duane Verh / Roots Music Report
Lee Bains III & The Glory Fires, from Birmingham, Alabama, are technical masters of their art. Their art: out and out barnstorming Southern rock ‘n’ roll. Sharing qualities and characteristics of every critic’s favourite new band, Alabama Shakes, whom they have also toured with, The Glory Fires are more powerful, more faithful to the southern sound of the USA and carry an unrivalled authenticity. – Redbrick
This is rock ‘n’ roll from the South, dirty and distinguished, polished (but not too much) to a Motor City shine. Fresh, soulful, assured, There is a Bomb in Gilead is damn fine debut from Lee Bains III and the Glory Fires. – Steve Wilson / Reverberations
