The kick-ass, noise-pop duo Sleigh Bells have just announced fall tour dates, and will be coming through Chicago on Sunday, November 10th at Metro! The band—Alexis Krauss and Derek Miller—will be on tour in support of their highly anticipated third studio album, Bitter Rivals, out now via Mom + Pop. In addition to announcing their new album and fall tour dates, Sleigh Bells have also released the video for the album title track "Bitter Rivals" with The Creator's Project! Sleigh Bells are infamous for their electric, live performances so this show is not to be missed. Watch them perform "Born To Lose", roast a pig, and give Anthony Bourdain a tattoo on Travel Channel's "No Reservations".
Sleigh Bells will release their third album, Bitter Rivals, on October 8th, 2013 via Mom + Pop. The ten song LP, produced by Derek Miller and mixed by Andrew Dawson, finds the band holding fast to their uncompromising sound and aesthetic while searching for badass new ways to make pop music. Album pre-order and “Bitter Rivals” single download are available now on iTunes.
The video for the album's title track, up now on bitterrivals.us, was made in conjunction with The Creators Project (a partnership between Intel and Vice), and was directed by Sleigh Bells. Sleigh Bells will also be performing on Jimmy Kimmel Live’s Outdoor Stage on Thursday, October 17th.
