Noise-pop duo Sleigh Bells have announced their second album, Reign of Terror, with a new video in which the two strut around in a typically sexy, menacing manner to an extended riff from one of their new tunes. There is no word yet as to when the record will hit shops, but it will presumably be out within the next few months.

"Emotionally, it's a really heavy record," guitarist and producer Derek E. Miller told Rolling Stone about the new set back in May. "Even the early demos that we have now, a lot of the stuff that Derek has recorded, sounds more immense to me," said singer Alexis Krauss. "It sounds really huge, so there's going to still be tons of volume."

Song Stories

“Vicious”

Lou Reed | 1972

Opening Lou Reed's 1972 solo album, the hard-riffing "Vicious" actually traces its origin back to Reed's days with the Velvet Underground. Picking up bits and pieces of songs from the people and places around him, and filing his notes for later use, Reed said it was Andy Warhol who provided fuel for the song. "He said, 'Why don't you write a song called 'Vicious,'" Reed told Rolling Stone in 1989. "And I said, 'What kind of vicious?' 'Oh, you know, vicious like I hit you with a flower.' And I wrote it down literally."
