Update: Lee Bains III and the Glory Fires

WYMA has been all in for Lee Bains III and the Glory Fires from the get go. We raved about their debut CD There Is A Bomb In Gilead when it came out and it cleaned up on our Best of 2012 year end lists (John's too - here).

Now the Birmingham, Alabama band has left its native South for a major tour. I saw them in Portland this week and was floored by how great it was. The set consisted of almost all brand new songs from an upcoming release they just finished recording in Nashville. It had a much harder edge and they tore through the songs with abandon. It took me back to the glory days of Jason and the Scorchers and that's about the highest praise I can grant a live show.

Here's a peek of the kind of night it was:
