We gotta say, we weren’t really feeling ‘Born To Lose’, the first song that bubblegum noise duo Sleigh Bells shared from their forthcoming second record Reign Of Terror. Thankfully the album’s first single proper, ‘Comeback Kid’, has allayed our fears about the album. The track abounds with the band’s usual mix of machine-gun strafe and sweet vocals, without sounding like a rehash of Treats. Stream the track below.
Reign Of Terror comes out on February 20 via Mom + Pop (a Columbia imprint). In support of its release, Alexis and Derek are hitting the UK for a few dates. Catch them at one of the following dates:
27.02.12 The Academy, Dublin
28.02.12 Oran Mor, Glasgow
01.03.12 Electric Ballroom, London
02.03.12 Sound Control, Manchester
