About Sleigh Bells
Thanks to the moniker of one experimental pop duo, you can hear Sleigh Bells any time of the year. Derek Miller and Alexis Krauss comprise the pair whose breakout performance at the 2009 CMJ Festival officially put Sleigh Bells on the map (no offense to Santa Claus). Though they first formed the group in New York, where Miller (a Florida native and former member of the hardcore act Poison the Well) had relocated, and the pair quickly grew a fan base that spread well beyond the Empire State.
For her part, Krauss (a former vocalist of the girl group Rubyblue) was the yin to Miller's yang, and together the two created what Billboard called a "rhythmic crunch" that landed them on the label N.E.E.T. Sleigh Bells released their debut album, "Treats," to widespread critical acclaim in 2010. The band then spent much of 2011 touring, but split time between the road and the studio to record their next project, "Reign of Terror." It was released in early 2012 and climbed to No. 12 on the Billboard 200.
Sleigh Bells' third record, "Bitter Rivals," arrived in October 2013 through Mom+Pop Music. Preceding the release was a music video for the title track. The band toured North America following the release, with Doldrums and Danny Brown as supporting acts. The trek kicked off in Portland, Oregon as Roseland on October 11 and wrapped November 23 with back-to-back nights at Terminal 5 in New York City.
The Bitter Rivals tour of the late-night talk show circuit kicked into high gear in January 2014, with stops at "Jimmy Kimmel Live!," "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" and the "Late Show With David Letterman."
