Crystal Castles Promise New Album This Spring

Fearsome frontwoman Alice Glass left the Toronto electro-punk duo Crystal Castles back in 2014, but her ex-bandmate Ethan Kath is continuing on without her. He’s replaced her with the mysterious new singer Edith Frances, and they’ve been doing shows. Now, the duo have announced that they’ll have a new album out this spring on Casablanca. Frequent collaborator Lexxx is mixing the record, but beyond that, they’ve revealed no details. They have, however, announced a few dates in North America and Europe, mostly at festivals, and those dates are below.
