Sleigh Bells coming to the State Theatre in St. Petersburg



Anytime Sleigh Bells announces a tour stop in Tampa Bay, you'd best prepare for a party.

When the native Floridians played the State Theatre in 2011 in support of their pop-rap-metal classic Treats, the show made our Best of the Year list. They returned to the Ritz Ybor in 2012, mere weeks before appearing on Saturday Night Live and the cover of Spin magazine.

Now Alexis Krauss and Derek Miller are back with a new single, the typically genre-defying Bitter Rivals, and a new tour that'll bring them back to St. Pete.

Sleigh Bells will perform at the State Theatre on Nov. 1, the group announced Tuesday. Doldrums will open the show. Tickets are $22, and they go on sale Friday. Click here.

As for Bitter Rivals: What's a good Pahokee boy like Miller doing wearing an LSU jersey in the video?
