With Sleigh Bells

A new issue of Clash magazine is available to buy now with Brooklyn's Sleigh Bells on the cover as we talk to the duo about new album 'Reign Of Terror'.

Three and a bit years since the pair first met, Sleigh Bells are ringing louder than ever. And with the release of ‘Reign Of Terror’ more people are going to hear than ever before.

If the title sounds ominous, it is. ‘Reign Of Terror’ is not, on the whole, a happy album. On the whole, in fact, it’s a very dark record - thematically, lyrically and, in its brash acerbic bursts of scuzzy, confrontational noise, musically, too. This is because, according to Miller - the duo’s songwriter, producer and lyricist, and former member of defunct Florida hardcore outfit Poison The Well - it’s a much more autobiographical record than both their eponymous 2009 debut EP and ‘Treats’, the band’s 2010 debut.

Read an excerpt from our Sleigh Bells feature.

Also in the issue are features on Graham Coxon, 'Left Eye' Lopes, Friends, John Lennon & Black Power, Kindness, Gang Colours, The Shins, The Doors and more.

Of course, a new issue of Clash means a new Cross Section download album to accompany your reading of said issue. This month we have a free album for you featuring songs from Andrew Bird, Nedry, Maria And The Gay, Gang Colours, Lone, Kindness, Alex Nagshineh, Ghost Outfit, DVA and Patterns. Download our free Cross Section album.

Add in all the essential music, film, fashion and tech news and reviews and your map of the month ahead is complete.
