Crystal Castles Reveal New Singer Edith Frances

Crystal Castles played their first show following Alice Glass’s departure today at Johannesburg’s SoundsWild fest. Prior to the show, the band posted the above picture on their official Facebook, seemingly revealing the identity of mysterious new vocalist “Edith” with the caption: “Edith Frances 1st show 1st time on stage, let’s show her luv xoxo.” So yes, contrary to our pet theories, it appears that Edith is a real person, although she strangely has no online presence at all — if you google “Edith Frances,” pretty much everything that comes up is an obituary. (Edith isn’t exactly a common young person name, I guess.) So still a little fishy! Edith has been featured on two songs so far, “Frail” and “Deicide,” and Crystal Castles also promised a “new song soon” in another Facebook post yesterday. You can watch some fan-shot footage of Edith and Kath performing a new song live at SoundsWild below.

Some fans seem disappointed by the performance:
