Crystal Castles Announce Tour + New Tunes
Nobody’s heard much from Crystal Castles since half the group, Alice Glass, left the band in October 2014. Luckily, the brains behind the outfit–Ethan Kath–is still around, and has recruited another member to sing distorted vocals for him. Enter Edith Frances, who will joint Ethan for an upcoming tour, plus the release of new material later this spring.
The tour kicks off on March 11 at Buku Music + Arts Project in New Orleans, followed by a couple SXSW showcases and a stint at Ultra Music Festival on March 19. In keeping with the festival theme, Crystal Castles is also included on the Spring Awakening lineup, Capitol Hill Block Party, and are on tap for the Reading & Leeds Festival(s) on August 26 and 27. Check below for more deets.
