Sleigh Bells Perform 'Bitter Rivals' and 'Tiger Kit' On Jimmy Kimmel Live! With Horn Section, Backup Singers and Live Drummer

Sleigh Bells stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night to perform two songs off the most recent album Bitter Rivals. Their performances are always fairly raucous, so when the duo of Alexis Krauss and Derek E. Miller added a horn-section trio, three backup singers and a live drummer, the energy of their set exploded.

With Miller shredding away on a tiger-striped guitar, Krauss maneuvered around the stage, flinging her hair and headbanging as she sang "Bitter Rivals" and "Tiger Kit."

The duo should really consider keeping this set up on their tour because it adds an element of groove to the driving thrash.

Bitter Rivals, the follow up to 2012's Reign of Terror, is out now. They are currently touring in support of the album.
