Alabama roots rockers Lee Bains III & The Glory Fires, who you may have caught on tour with Alabama Shakes, have announced that they've signed to Sub Pop. No word on their first release for the label yet, but you can stream a couple earlier tracks from the band below. They're also touring with Turf War soon and coming to NYC on February 1 at Shea Stadium. All dates are listed below.

In other Sub Pop news, they're supposed to finally release the new Avi Buffalo album, which has been talked about for a few years now, this year. It will follow their 2010 debut.

As you've probably heard, Sub Pop is also releasing the new Dum Dum Girls album, Too True, on January 27. Since we last spoke, the DDGs have released another song from it, "Rimbaud Eyes," which you can stream below. Their previously announced tour hits NYC on 1/30 at Mercury Lounge (sold out) and 3/25 at Bowery Ballroom and 3/26 at MHOW with Blouse (tickets).

In other Sub Pop news, London art pop singer Lyla Foy, who used to record as WALL, is now using her own name and has signed to Sub Pop, who will release her debut album, Mirrors the Sky, on March 18. She just released the album's single, "Feather Tongue," which you can stream along with her late 2013 single, "Easy," below.

Another recent Sub Pop signee is UK pop duo THUMPERS, who recently toured the UK with (and covered) CHVRCHES. They'll release their debut album, Galore, on February 11. It features the super catchy single, "Unkinder (A Tougher Love)," which you can stream, along with the LP artwork and tracklist below.

We also just posted that Death Vessel are releasing their new album, Island Intervals, on February 25 via Sub Pop. Listen to two tracks here, including one featuring Jonsi.

And lastly, a video of Sub Pop class of '89 stars Nirvana (who are getting inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and who are the subject of a new book by Sub Pop founder Bruce Pavitt) playing one of their last-ever shows just surfaced. It was filmed in LA in 1993 by Dave Markey, who directed 1991: The Year Punk Broke. Check it out below.

Hope you're being sarcastic. 'Cause clearly by how Kurt was acting on stage during this video shows the opposite of what you are saying.

Those of you who want to rock the beard then rock a full beard. And for those of you that only look like some mutant with patches that really never grow, you need to shave.
