BIOGRAPHY:
Crystal Castles was an experimental electronic band formed in 2003 in Toronto consisting of songwriter/producer Ethan Kath and formerly of vocalist Alice Glass. The duo was known for their chaotic live shows and lo-fi melancholic homemade productions. They released many limited vinyl singles between 2006 and 2007 before releasing a trilogy of critically acclaimed albums between 2008 and 2012.
In 2006, their first single/EP "Alice Practice" was released on vinyl and was limited to 500 copies, which sold out in 3 days. Their debut album, Crystal Castles, was released in 2008 and was listed on NME's "Top 100 Greatest Albums of the Decade" list at No. 39
In 2010, they announced their second album, titled (II). The album was their first release to chart on the Billboard Hot 100, and includes their first worldwide charting single, "Not In Love", featuring Robert Smith of The Cure. The album has received general acclaim and was placed on many 2010 top critics lists.
Their third album, (III), was released on November 12, 2012 and was the #1 album of 2012 on Tumblr and also on The Hype Machine. The album included 4 singles: "Plague", "Wrath of God", "Sad Eyes", "Affection".
Alice Glass announced her departure from the band in October 2014, citing both personal and professional reasons.
