Sleigh Bells confirm new album for 2013

Brooklyn noise-pop duo say they will have "three full-length albums in three years"

Sleigh Bells have confirmed that they will release a new album in 2013.

The Brooklyn noise-pop duo are currently touring their second LP ‘Reign Of Terror’, which was released this year (February 20). However, in an interview with Huffington Post earlier this month, they revealed that they are already working on its follow-up. “We’ll have three full-length albums in three years,” the band’s Derek Miller said.

Speaking about the sound of the record, he added: “Sonically, it’s a lot more clean…it might sound surprising.” On ‘Reign Of Terror’, he added: “I wanted to make a metal record with a different context – without being self-serious. I wanted to play guitar again. Reign of Terror comes from a horrible period of my life. I just needed to get it out of my system.”


Singer Alexis Krauss says that the pair are woking together more on the new material. “I use my voice in more of a, dare I say, traditional way,” she said. “We’re fully collaborating now.”

‘Reign Of Terror’ was the follow-up to the band’s 2010 debut ‘Treats’.
