Video: Sleigh Bells – “Bitter Rivals”

Sleigh Bells has finally resurfaced with material from their upcoming third album, Bitter Rivals. Derek Miller and Alexis Krauss released have the song and video for the title track simultaneously, and fans of the band’s previous work should feel right at home.

“Bitter Rivals” has all the elements of a classic Sleigh Bells track: huge hurricane guitars contrasted with Krauss’ deceivingly lilting vocals, timid until she explodes in yells and growls that almost sound like the Beastie Boys.

The duo also announced 2013 tour dates, including a NYC show with none other than Danny Brown. Bitter Rivals drops October 8th. Stream the video above, then check out the dates below:
