Crystal Castles still alive, release new track, 'Frail'

Last October it seemed like Crystal Castles were over, as one-half of the duo, Alice Glass, left the band, citing "professional and personal" reasons.


Turns out that it’s not the end for the moniker: remaining member Ethan Kath released a new song today, "Frail," on the Crystal Castles Soundcloud page.



Kath also made a statement on Soundcloud regarding his former bandmate, although most of these words have since been removed since it was first posted. It read:


"i wish my former vocalist the best of luck in her future endeavors. i think it can be empowering for her to be in charge of her own project. it should be rewarding for her considering she didn't appear on Crystal Castles' best known songs. (she's not on Untrust Us. Not In Love, Vanished, Crimewave, Vietnam, Magic Spells, Knights, Air War, Leni, Lovers Who Uncover, Violent Youth, Reckless, Year of Silence, Intimate, 1991, Good Time, Violent Dreams etc.). people often gave her credit for my lyrics and that was fine, i didn't care."


Now the statement reads:


"i wish my former vocalist the best of luck in her future endeavors. i think it can be empowering for her to be in charge of her own project. <3 this is Edith on vocals"


This is the first new music from Crystal Castles since 2012.
