Lee Bains III & the Glory Fires Announce 'Dereconstructed' for Sub Pop
Birmingham, AL's Lee Bains III & the Glory Fires released their 2012 album There Is a Bomb in Gilead through Alive Records, but they've since inked a deal with Sub Pop. Their first album for the new label is called Dereconstructed, and it will drop on May 27.

The 10-song LP was produced by Tim Kerr and mixed by Lee Bains and Jeremy Ferguson at Nashville, TN's Battle Tapes. The tracklist is below. At the bottom of the page, hear "The Company Man," which takes an explosively fuzzed-out approach to vintage, blues-laced Southern soul rock.

Scroll past the tracklist to see the band's tour schedule, which includes a number of U.S. shows but Canadian dates.

Those who pre-order Dereconstructed on vinyl from Sub Pop will receive the so-called "Loser Edition" on yellow wax. What's more, pre-orders on LP or CD will receive an embroidered patch, while supplies last.
