New Song Debuted At Reading Festival

 

Crystal Castles are back, and in no uncertain terms. Following on from new track ‘Plague’, a first taster off their new album due in Fall, the band paid a visit to Reading & Leeds Festivals over the weekend, where playing to a rapturous audience they debuted ‘Wrath Of God’, another new track from the forthcoming 3rd album.

Speaking recently about the forthcoming album, the band said:

“Oppression is a theme, in general… A lot of bad things have happened to people close to me since ‘II’ and it’s profoundly influenced my writing as I’ve realized there will never be justice for them. I didn’t think I could lose faith in humanity any more than I already had, but after witnessing some things, it feels like the world is a dystopia where victims don’t get justice and corruption prevails. I’m one step away from being a vigilante to protect people and bring justice to the people I love. I’ve thought about it.” –Alice Glass

“We wanted the new album to sound like a completely different and new experience. Any keyboards and pedals used on ‘I’ or ‘II’ were traded for different keyboards and pedals so that there would be a new palette of sounds to work with. We wouldn’t allow any computers near the studio, everything had to be recorded to tape. We’d limit ourselves to 1 take because we believe the 1st take is the rawest expression of an idea.” –Ethan Kath

Along with this, the band will be playing a select number of UK tour dates in November:

22/11 – Institute – Birmingham (Tickets)
23/11 – Norwich U.E.A. – Norwich (Tickets)
