Former frontwoman Alice Glass called Crystal Castles' forthcoming appearance at a feminist SXSW party inappropriate. Now, the band has been removed from the lineup.
Ethan Kath will perform his first shows with mysterious new singer Edith later this month in South Africa followed by an appearance at SXSW in March.
SXSW is still several months out, but today, the annual Austin festival and conference has announced its initial 2016 lineup.
Believe it or not, we're at about the halfway point of the summer. But there's still plenty of music to look forward to.
Crystal Castles, now just Ethan Kath, released the new song, 'Deicide.'
Crystal Castles have made a career of virulent, opaque electro. Their first two albums earned high praise, and their live shows gave them a reputation for causing riots. Their third full-length, 'III,' is not as blindsiding as their earlier work, but the Canadian duo once again create an intoxicating kaleidoscope of fever dreams.
