Back in October of last year, the then front woman (Alice Glass) of the dark electronic outfit Crystal Castles announced that for a “multitude of reasons both professional and personal” she would be leaving the band to pursue a solo career.
I remember being online that day and thinking that the internet must have broken because ALL I saw were posts and comments about Alice leaving Crystal Castles.
Some fans left messages of support while others’ reactions varied from dismay to outright anger. Many of us thought that would simply be the end of an era. I had friends go to see them on that last tour in 2012, we all just assumed that was it. After all, the last album we saw the group release was “III” that same year.
Then yesterday the electronic music scene began to buzz as a NEW CC track had been released. Ethan Kath posted on his Facebook page simply, “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”
Listen to the return of Crystal Castles, titled “Frail”:
