Sleigh Bells Announce North American Tour with CSS and Neon Indian, Hint at Beyoncé Collaboration

Sleigh Bells Announce North American Tour with CSS and Neon Indian, Hint at Beyoncé Collaboration
Earlier today (January 24), Diplo dropped a little Mad Decent love on "Tell Em," one of the standout tracks from Brooklyn duo Sleigh Bells' 2010 debut. From the looks of it, however, Diplo's remix is just the beginning of their working relationship, as Sleigh Bells reportedly teamed up with the globe-trotting producer for a potential Beyoncé track.


 On the Mad Decent blog, Diplo leaked info about the collaboration, saying, "me and derek and alexis are bros and sis for life. in fact i like sleigh bells so much .. me and switch was in studio in nyc tryin to make tracks with derek and beyonce last week after we played her team their album .. dunno if we gonna manage to finish but was good times."

Sometimes Diplo likes to make things up for comedic value so we were a little skeptical, but Sleigh Bells seemingly confirmed the collaboration on their Twitter, saying, "yeah damn beyonce on it was intense track may not get finished (?) but we finished the rum off at least #idroppedsomethingg."

Even if they miss the deadline for the big-budget pop album, here's hoping they do what Of Montreal did and give the track to Beyoncé's hip sister Solange Knowles.

In addition to the big-ticket collaborations, Sleigh Bells will be bringing their brain-exploding party jams across the world on an enormous tour that kicks off in Europe this month. In April, they will join CSS for a U.S. tour, followed by a Canada-friendly trip with Neon Indian in May. All dates are available below.
