Hellbound Glory is an American Country and Roots Rock band featuring Singer-Songwriter Leroy Virgil. The band was originally formed in Reno, Nevada in 2008 by Virgil. Describing the band’s style as “Americana,” Virgil credits his influences as “Hank Williams, Nirvana, and Hank Williams Jr.”


According to The Oklahoma Gazette (February 26, 2014), "Hellbound Glory has three studio albums, and Virgil is at work on new material."

Hellbound Glory is signed to The Agency Group LTD for worldwide booking representation.

Formation and History

The band was formed in the early 2000's after founding member, Leroy Virgil, relocated to Reno, Nevada. Originally from the town of Aberdeen, Washington where he played in the band Soylint Green; Virgil found inspiration for the band and material in his adopted new home, “It’s influenced by the Reno nightlife, experiences I’ve had, women I’ve met, fights I’ve gotten into—the local bar scene in general.”

Touring and Appearances

Hellbound Glory tours consistently in North America. In 2012 the band was tapped to perform as a featured artist on the Kid Rock Chillin’ the Most Cruise and again supported Kid Rock in 2013 on the Rebel Soul Tour (28 dates) along with Buckcherry; The first leg of which was publicly announced on November 27, 2012.

2013 included 2 dates in support of Kid Rock and ZZ Top as part of the headliner's "Best Night Ever" package at DTE Energy Music Theatre in Clarkston, Michigan.

Subsequent touring in 2013 included a co-headline package with The Supersuckers.

2014 tour dates included east coast support with Leon Russell.

Hellbound Glory supported active rock band 10 Years (band) in March 2014 in support of the headliner's acoustic tour.

In the Media

LA Weekly Music Editor, Nicholas Pell, listed Hellbound Glory #2 in his list of "10 Country Artists You Should Be Listening To" feature; describing the band's music in part as, "Think of them as evoking the energy of the wildest party Waylon, Willie and Bocephus ever had."

Washington Post Music Editor, Chris Richards, featured Hellbound Glory's "LV" as a part of the newspaper's "This Month's Best Music" column describing the release; "The “country” that country singers so often pine for can be a sanctuary, a playground, a paradise. But for Leroy Virgil of Hellbound Glory, it’s a twilight zone where his cell phone won’t work. “No service, so nervous,” he sings sheepishly on his confident new EP. “Nothin’ on the radio.”

Hellbound Glory songs receive consistent airplay on Outlaw Country (Sirius XM) Channel.

“Livin’ This Way,” from the album Scumbag Country, was featured in the major motion picture “Bad Grandpa” starring Johnny Knoxville released in October 2013.

In March 2013, Hellbound Glory, performed as a featured artist for CMT Edge Live in Nashville, TN.

In February 2013, Hellbound Glory performed exclusively at Elvis Presley's Graceland on break from the Kid Rock Rebel Soul Tour.
