Sleigh Bells Announce <i>Bitter Rivals</i> LP, Release Video for Title Track

Last week Sleigh Bells revealed that on Sept. 3 they would release all of the pertinent information regarding their upcoming third full-length album, as well as a track from the LP. Today is Sept. 3.

The duo’s follow-up to 2012’s Reign of Terror will be called Bitter Rivals and is slated for an Oct. 8 release date on Mom + Pop, the group’s label since their breakout 2010 debut Treats. The 10-track album was produced by frontwoman Alexis Krauss’ instrumental other half, Derek Miller, and was engineered by Andrew Dawson, best known for his work in hip hop studios with artists like Kanye West, Rick Ross and Tyler, the Creator. Bitter Rivals is currently available for pre-order on iTunes.

Accompanying the album announcement is the release of not only the title track—which Krauss premiered and discussed last night on SiriusXM U—but also its video, directed by Sleigh Bells themselves and featuring Krauss rocking some choreographed moves in front of backup dancers and Miller head banging on guitar in an LSU Tigers football jersey. The song (and video) are just as in-your-face as what we’ve come to expect from the duo, who also announced a slew of North American tour dates. Check out their upcoming schedule, the “Bitter Rivals” video and the album’s full tracklist below.
