sleigh_bells_bitter_rivals_cover_artThe metal guitars, white Keds and sports jerseys are back! Last week Sleigh Bells unveiled the title track from their upcoming album Bitter Rivals. This makes 3 LP’s for the duo in just under 3 years, showing that there’s no stopping the rock. I’m sure this track and direction are bound to become divisive to the group’s fan base as it’s a lot poppier, giving singer Alexis Krauss a bit more of the heavy lifting melody wise, while guitarist Derek Miller’s riffs take more of a back seat. I think it’s still extremely catchy though and I’m down for the group taking the next steps to whatever they’re interested in doing next.

Bitter Rivals releases on October 8th, and you can pre-order it on a variety of formats at the official Sleigh Bells website.
