Not that we don’t love hearing Sleigh Bells over those incessant Skins commercials on MTV, but it’s nice to have some fresh and relevant news on our fave Brooklyn duo. The John Watts-directed video for critically acclaimed Treats highlight “Rill Rill” will debut this Thursday, January 27th, and will be sent to alternative radio format stations on February 6th. A 30-second sneak peak will premiere tonight after — you guessed it – Skins! and on MTV.com.

Perhaps more exciting still is the announcement that Sleigh Bells will mount a co-headlining tour with CSS on April 21st in San Antonio (although Coachella is technically the first date of the trek), before linking up with Neon Indian in Winnipeg on May 21st for a brief run of dates.
