Hellbound Glory

Barreling through the gates of country music, HELLBOUND GLORY, is justifying rightful ownership to the band's declarative namesake. In defining their sound, distilled of equal parts melody and bar-room-thump, this Reno, NV based band is packing the house to a growing legion of fans coast to coast. Front man and songwriter, Leroy Virgil, explains; "We just really dig the challenge of a new audience. We'll walk into a new room full of folks that haven't heard our music, play a 4 or 5 hour night, and drive away with more people that consider themselves fans. I'm not a flashy guy but I like showing off."

The bands formation in 2008 was a graduation of sorts for Virgil who originally hails from Aberdeen, WA. Relocating to Reno in 2002, the singer jumped head-long into the nightlife of the Biggest Little City In The World. This 'nightlife' had an immediate impact on what would become HELLBOUND GLORY'S material. Virgil explains Reno's influence, "I grew up in a hick-town by a lot of peoples standards. Reno is just a hick-town with taller buildings and brighter lights. Playing Reno is like playing a 24 hour dive bar. No matter where I play, I'm never too far from home."
