Published Oct 10, 2017Noise-pop two-piece Sleigh Bells released their Jessica Rabbit LP last year, but they're already back with more material via a forthcoming mini album.
The release is called Kid Kruschev and features seven new compositions from the band. Among them is the stripped-down "And Saints," which can be streamed below.
Speaking of the new songs, Sleigh Bells' Derek Miller said this in a statement:
Doesn't feel like the sky is falling, feels more like it fell. Maybe a long time ago and it's just more obvious now. Lots of friction and darkness as well as opposition to all that, which has been inspiring to see. Alexis moved north of Brooklyn recently, somewhere with trees and cliffs, providing us with a new space to write and record without pissing off neighbors, so that's what we've been doing. We didn't want to wait another year or two to release something. We like the idea of putting out shorter records at a more consistent rate, so we're gonna give it a shot for a while, see how it feels. Thanks for listening. Take care.
Look for Kid Kruschev to drop on November 10 via the band's Torn Clean label.
In addition to the new release, Sleigh Bells have a North American tour set up for early next year. It includes Canadian dates in Toronto and Montreal, and you can see the full schedule below.
