Southern rockers Lee Bains III & the Glory Fires are as passionate about Alabama as they are about rock and roll itself. Singing about everything from Opelika to the Cahaba River, the Birmingham natives draw their sound from the twangy, raucous energy of the Deep South. The band is finishing up their next record at Battle Tapes recording studio, which is slated to come out next year. We caught up with Bains during a recent stop at The Bottletree, where we chatted music, Southern food, and the glory of a live performance.
