Birmingham, Alabamaniacs Lee Bains III & The Glory Fires’ utterly jaw-dropping collection of Southern Rock anthems that comprise their Sub Pop Records debut, Dereconstructed, came out today on the aforementioned record label to a ton of critical praise, and we couldn’t be more proud to offer it to you, consumer of fine musical records, on this very website. Head on over here, and pick up your copy of Dereconstructed on the formatway of your choice.
Sub Pop noise mongers, clipping., just delivered their first music video for this record label for the song “Work Work”, and I have to say, we are APPALLED. It features copious amounts of violence and a plethora of swears, not to mention A TON of innuendo and refer references. FILTHY.

What People Are Saying About Lee Bains III & The Glory Fires Dereconstructed:
“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.” - 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.” - NPR Music
“As pure a shot of adrenaline as a guitar band will release this year… a terrific album.” [4 / 5 stars] - The Guardian
“Sounds like Flannery O’Connor gave up fiction for a Coors and a Gibson SG.” - Rolling Stone
“A radical, literate update of Southern rock.” - UNCUT
“A raging burnpile of garage and Southern rock, dirty, supercharged blues and soul, Stonesy groove, Crazy Horse howl, and punk slam. With these songs, Bains surely wants to make you think; he surely will make you shake.” - The Boston Globe
“Four Birmingham boys have made what might be the greatest-ever rock record about the South.” - The Bitter Southerner

Sub Pop is joining with Lung Force, led by the American Lung Association, for the ‘Turquoise Takeover’ week, from May 12th-18th.
This is a cause we are proud to support and one that has personally
touched us here at Sub Pop. Proceeds from the sale of these
special-edition turquoise Sub Pop logo shirts will go directly to the
American Lung Association. These funds will assist them in their
continued fight for those whose lives are affected directly or
indirectly by lung disease through research, outreach, and education. And ne-er-do-wells, here’s a chance to be a do-gooder just once in your life.
