And they’re sharing first single ‘Locust Laced’ to celebrate.

Back with their sixth full-length offering, Sleigh Bells have announced that their new album ‘Texis’ will be arriving on 10th September via Lucky Number.

“We stopped worrying about whether or not we’re in or out of our comfort zone, or if we were being repetitive or formulaic,” the band’s Derek Miller says.

“The thing I’m most attracted to is the juxtaposition of happy and sad, melancholy and hope. A lot of this is about trying to hold on to a shred of optimism through sheer force of will, and I hope this music can give people some joyful energy and confidence.”

Sharing lead single ‘Locust Laced’ today, check it out below.
