Watch Sleigh Bells’ New Video ‘Bitter Rivals’


Sleigh Bells dropped their new single and music video “Bitter Rivals” this week. They also announced that they would be dropping an album in October 8th, which is a surprise since the duo’s last album Reign of Terror was released just last year. I have to admit when I first heard “Bitter Rivals” I was like, WTF? Then after two more listens I am way into it. The surging guitars, the abrasive shouting and then chorus is too catchy to refuse. “You are my bitter rival but I need you for survival,” has been looping in my head since Tuesday. The rest of the lyrics are a little clunky but if you missed Sleigh Bells’ punchy sound from Treats, then I think you’ll love this new track.
