Playing Center Stage May 2nd!! Sleigh Bells!

The band recently played Coachella and are touring behind their killer
debut album Treats. which has established Sleigh Bells as one of music’s
most exciting new voices. Live, producer/guitarist Derek Miller and
singer Alexis Krauss are not only cool, they drive the crowd wild with
their larger-than-life stage presence. Derek creates an explosion of
guitars and body-groovin’ beats, while Alexis delivers some sugary-sweet
vocals that keep fans singing along.

The Sleigh Bells live experience in Atlanta is not to be missed!

Brooklyn duo Sleigh Bells – comprised of guitarist/producer Derek Miller
and singer Alexis Krauss – will be embarking on a two month North
American tour, co-headlining first with CSS, then Neon Indian.  The
jaunt will kick off with a set at this year’s Coachella Festival on
April 15th, and will take the band coast to coast through June.  Tour
dates and full details are listed below.

Sleigh Bells’ will also be premiering the video for their new single,
“Rill Rill,” this week.  Directed by John Watts (TV on the Radio, The
Rapture), the video for “Rill Rill” – which was called one of the best
songs of 2010 by the likes of Time Magazine, Pitchfork and GQ – is high
school horror at its finest.  A thirty second sneak preview of the “Rill
Rill” video will premiere on MTV tonight following the show Skins, as
well as on MTV.com.  The full video will premiere on all of MTV’s
channels on Thursday, January 27th.  The song will also be added at
Alternative Radio on February 6th. 

“Rill Rill” is one of the most infectious tracks off of the band’s
critically-acclaimed debut album, Treats (out now on Mom + Pop Music /
N.E.E.T.).  With over 100,000 copies sold to date, Treats has
established Sleigh Bells as one of music’s most exciting new voices.
The album received year-end praise from the likes of the New York Times,
The New Yorker, Time Magazine, Rolling Stone, Spin, Pitchfork,
Alternative Press, Stereogum, NPR, New York Magazine, iTunes, NME and
many many more. 

Live, Sleigh Bells are a maelstrom of Derek Miller’s exploding guitars
and rapid-fire beats, and singer Alexis Krauss’ sweet-as-sugar vocals
and larger-than-life stage presence.  Having played with the likes of
LCD Soundsystem, M.I.A., Yeasayer, Major Lazer, Hot Chip and more, in
addition to selling out their own headlining shows this past summer, the
Sleigh Bells live experience is not to be missed.

Praise for Sleigh Bells and Treats…

“Every song on this album merges a noisy kick in the head with a pop
enticement, as blasts of low-fi drums and loud guitar bracket girlish
vocals. Each whipsaw only whets the appetite for more.” #8 album of the
year – New York Times

“Imagine the White Stripes fronted by Meg, powered by a malevolent drum
machine, and bred on metal and hip-hop. Then pump your fist, bitch.”
Best Albums of the Year – Rolling Stone

“It’s a take-no-prisoners album. Every track makes me feel as if I could
rip my house off its foundation… it’s one of the year’s most potent
and unforgettable recordings.” Robin Hilton, Top 10 Albums of 2010 – NPR

“Take a vintage ’80’s Jackson guitar and strum thick-necked power
chords. Take a vault of Kurtis Mantronik drum tracks and play ’em on a
blown-out ghetto blaster. Take a never-was teen-pop diva and let her
howl. Take a look at Sleigh Bells – rock stars.” Best 40 Albums of 2010
– Spin

“Fuzz has never been this catchy.” Best 25 Albums of 2010 – Complex

“…a lightning bolt on a winter’s day – an unexpected full-throttle
aural assault… ever fascinating and always on.” Bob Boilen, Top 10
Albums of 2010 – NPR

“It’s a supremely raw and visceral pop masterwork, one appropriate to
rocking out with headphones on, windows-down bumping on car stereos,
four-A.M. warehouse dance parties and countless other summer moments.”
