Sleigh Bells will hit the road next month to promote their forthcoming album, Bitter Rivals. The indie rock duo from Brooklyn will make their way to Boston for a night at the Royale on Saturday, November 16. Tickets for the show, which will also feature openers Doldrums, are now on sale through Ticketmaster for $25.

Bitter Rivals, Sleigh Bells’ third studio effort and follow-up to 2012’s Reign of Terror, will be released on October 8. Produced by guitarist Derek Miller and mixed by Andrew Dawson, the video for the title track from the 10-song set is streaming below.

In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Sleigh Bells described Bitter Rivals as their most collaborative album yet. “We decided everything together on this record,” Miller said. He would  record the instrumentals and wrote lyrics, while Krauss would determine the vocal melodies. “It never ceased to be an incredibly anxiety-producing process,” she said. “I would fully arrange [my vocals] and harmonize everything, and I’d be like, ‘He’s gonna fucking hate it.'”
