    Sleigh Bells announced the upcoming release of a new mini-album titled Kid Kruschev on November 10th of this year. The seven track album is a quick follow up to 2016's Jessica Rabbit, which will be the new trend from the band, who said in a statement that they plan to release shorter albums in rapid succession going forward. The announcement includes the audio debut of the mini-album's closing track, "And Saints", a chilling and lyrically focused piece rife with anxiety.

    After the release of Jessica Rabbit, vocalist Alexis Krauss moved out of Brooklyn and into the countryside, where she and guitarist/producer Derek Miller recorded the new offering. Describing the new setting within the context of current global affairs, Miller said, "Doesn't feel like the sky is falling, feels more like it fell. Maybe a long time ago and it's just more obvious now. Lots of friction and darkness as well as opposition to all that, which has been inspiring to see. Alexis moved north of Brooklyn recently, somewhere with trees and cliffs, providing us with a new space to write and record without pissing off neighbors, so that's what we've been doing."

    Kid Kruschev is available for pre-order now via the band's Torn Clean website, which also lists dates for an extensive North American tour through January and February of 2018.

    1. Blue Trash Mattress Fire
