The first Sleigh Bells album was called Treats, and it was a reign of terror. One of the best albums of 2010, the duo of ex-Poison the Well guitarist Derek Miller and siren vocalist Alexis Krauss bludgeoned us with those 11 tracks. Especially upon a visit to Respectable Street.
Now, the second Sleigh Bells album is actually called Reign of Terror. Process that for a moment. Reign of mother-trucking terror. If there's any excuse to pitch expectations unreasonably high for the group's sophomore set, let this stirring video featuring an intro to SOMETHING -- please let it resolve and build and eventually thrive -- do it for you.

No word yet on when this album will actually be terrorizing our ears. But as soon as that information is made public, Sound of the City and I would like to know.
