Sleigh Bells 2011
TOUR DATES & TICKETING arrow
RAT VS POSSUM AND PURPLE SNEAKERS DJs
Unquestionably the buzz band and indie phenomenon of 2010, Sleigh Bells have been tearing up the path to success and living up to every word of hype bestowed upon them from critics and fans. The irrepressible duo will perform two exclusive headline shows this coming January, much to the delight of fans in Melbourne and Sydney.
Amidst numerous attempts to classify their sound, one thing is for sure – Sleigh Bells are unabashedly, irresistibly loud. Producer Derek Miller’s synth-heavy beats and pounding riffs are undeniable, complimented and perfectly off-set by Alexis Krauss’ melodic chants to form a sound that is genre-less; a melting pot of music that is distinctively Sleigh Bells.
The release of debut album Treats, which featured singles ‘Tell ‘Em’ and ‘Rill Rill’, earned the Brooklyn duo a place on the mantelpiece of the hottest music publications across the globe and on many a listener’s list of 2010 highlights.
‘Mixing angelic vocals with grinding synths and scorched bass, it's a body-shaker that sounds like a choir girl showing up to a street fight with a howitzer and a holster full of lasers. Danceable lasers.’ – Rolling Stone
‘The intense, beat-bruising Sleigh Bells live show is not to be missed.’ - Pitchfork
‘A Sleigh Bells show is anything but your standard concert experience…From the moment Miller and singer Alexis Krauss step onstage, they go into high gear and don't let up until the crowd is fried and frazzled.’ – Spinner.com
‘It is rough, and savage, and completely rock and roll… Sleigh Bells are right here, right now, and every song sounds like an invitation to the coolest, loosest party in town.’ – FasterLouder
It’s no secret; their live performances truly set them apart and Melbourne’s Prince Bandroom and The Forum in Sydney will only amplify the chaos.
Sleigh Bells explosive headline show will also feature performances from Rat Vs. Possum and sets from infamous indie party-starters the Purple Sneakers DJs.
Tickets will be available to Frontier Members from 12 noon AEDT, Tuesday 12 October to 12 noon AEDT, Wednesday 13 October. General on sale from 9am local time, Friday 15 October. Don’t get left behind, Sleigh Bells wait for no one.
