Sleigh Bells have shared another new track with ‘Justine Go Genesis’. Check out the video for the single below.

The duo are set to release their new album ‘Texis’ next month (September 10), and now comes previewed by one of the first ones Sleigh Bells wrote for the record with producer/guitarist Derek Miller.

The video for ‘Justine Go Genesis’ picks up where ‘Texis” lead single ‘Locust Laced’ left off, and references early 80’s horror films, The Twilight Zone and the band’s own live show.

‘Texis’ is Sleigh Bells’ sixth album and while it’s being released digitally in September by Lucky Number, a physical release will follow on December 3.

“We stopped worrying about whether or not we’re in or out of our comfort zone, or if we were being repetitive or formulaic,” said Miller of this new record. “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.”
