The fiercely uncompromising CRYSTAL CASTLES have created a stir from their inception with shows that enthral and excite an impassioned cult following.
Hailing from Toronto, CRYSTAL CASTLES is Ethan Kath and Alice Glass. This antisocial duo have created an unexpected level of excitement and loyalty with their two eponymously titled albums, an inspired collaboration with Robert Smith from The Cure, headlining sold out tours around the world and clocking up a staggering 50 million plays on MySpace and Lastfm.
CRYSTAL CASTLES bring an equal amount of energy and dismay to their music. With their 8-bit sounds and Alice's haunting vocals, it's unsettling and bleak yet all the while haunting and beautiful. They sound unlike anything else.
But it's in the live arena that CRYSTAL CASTLES truly come into their own. They've always impressed with their hazardous live performances with Alice regularly climbing scaffolding and wrecking drum kits. This chaotic whirlwind adds to the legend and the mystique of the band. CRYSTAL CASTLES will be exciting and dark. They will be loud and Alice will scream like a possessed banshee. You'll be hooked and riveted the entire time.
This year heralds the arrival of their third album, with its first single 'Plague' described as "dangerous, demented and utterly thrilling" NME. This is your chance to catch a band that will inevitably put on one of the most talked about shows of the year.
Get ready because a plague is about to hit Australia in the form of the electro anarchists CRYSTAL CASTLES.
These shows are your only chance to see CRYSTAL CASTLES outside of BIG DAY OUT 2013
