CRYSTAL CASTLES Announce U.S. Festival Performances; New Album Due Out This Spring‏

This spring marks the return of CRYSTAL CASTLES who are on tap to release their fourth album via Casablanca Records. Having just played two sold-out shows at London‘s Electrowerkz February 23 and 24 as part of the NME Awards Shows 2016, the experimental electronic band will return to North America to appear at several influential music festivals to showcase their new material for fans.

In March, the Toronto-based group returns to the U.S. to appear at Buku Music + Art Project in New Orleans, VIVA PHX in Phoenix, SXSW in Austin and Miami’s Ultra Music Festival. Other upcoming plays include Burgerama in Southern California, the Slingshot Festival in Athens, Georgia, Spring Awakening in Chicago and the Capitol Hill Block Party in Seattle.  Later this summer, they’ll also appear at both Reading and Leeds Festivals in the U.K.  All confirmed dates follow below.

Joining CRYSTAL CASTLES founder and songwriter Ethan Kath on the album is new singer Edith Frances. Kath is helming production, with mixing by long- term collaborator Lexxx. They’re still in the studio completing the album which will include two songs released last year. “Frail” was #1 on HypeMachine for seven days straight upon its reveal and “Deicide” also placed the band at #1 on the Hype Machine artist chart for a week.
