Even though singer Alice Glass announced that Crystal Castles would be no more at the end of last year, it seems that the duo's producer Ethan Kath has other ideas.
A new track under the Crystal Castles name called 'Frail' was uploaded to the band's Soundcloud last night (16th April) and is accompanied by a note, written by Kath, explaining where the pair currently are.
The note 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. 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.”
Make of that what you will and check out 'Frail' in the player below.
