Need a pick-me-up after spending the morning watching (and rewatching) Lana Del Rey’s wooden SNL outing?
Sleigh Bells has the cure. The Brooklyn noise-pop duo hit the web today with “Comeback Kid,” the first proper single from their upcoming sophomore effort Reign of Terror, due February 21.

You can buy the track on iTunes (it also comes free if you preorder the album), but first check it out below:
