Published May 19, 2014Before Southern rockers Lee Bains III & the Glory Fires officially wreck you with their Dereconstructed debut for Sub Pop, the Birmingham, AL outfit are letting you taste the moonshine-soaked results a little early via an full album stream on Exclaim.ca. In other words, it's time to drink up.
As previously reported, this is the group's sophomore set, following 2012's There Is a Bomb in Gilead, and it was produced by Tim Kerr (Poison 13, the Monkeywrench, Lord High Fixers) and mixed by Lee Bains and Jeremy Ferguson at Battle Tapes in Nashville.
A press release describes Dereconstructed as "a careening, road-raging, all-night party of a record." Want proof? Well, the group get fired up with filthy, fuzzed-out blues licks and boogie-woogieing piano on the bar-bound "The Company Man," with the title track letting the feedback run furious alongside the Southern Comfort riff-rock arrangement.
A mean choogle is threaded all throughout the LP, and you can give it a spin ahead of the May 27 street date down below.
The band also have some U.S. tour dates coming up, and you can see all those here. You can also pre-order the album here.
UPDATE: This stream was available for one week only and is no longer available.
