Moving glacially between ethereal techno pop and speaker-shattering rave breakdowns, “Fleece” is another fascinating insight into the breathtaking sonic and emotional palette on AMNESTY (I).

In addition, CRYSTAL CASTLES have announced a special in-store performance at Rough Trade East in London on Tuesday, August 23. This comes ahead of the band playing the BBC Radio 1/NME Stage at Reading & Leeds Festivals later this month, before continuing on to further European and North American headline and festival tour dates, with more U.K. shows to be announced soon.

Known for their chaotic live shows and visceral, melancholic homemade productions, CRYSTAL CASTLES released a trilogy of critically acclaimed albums between 2008-2013. Their last album III was the Tumblr and Hype Machine album of the year for 2013, and NME‘s #4 album of the year. In 2015 they released the standalone tracks “Frail” and “Deicide,”,with new member Edith Frances.

Across its 12 tracks, AMNESTY (I) explores the sonic and atmospheric range that we have learned to expect from a CRYSTAL CASTLES record. From gothic electronic paeans to distorted digital raves, from cinematic synth and noise crescendos to hip hop and trap infused synth pop, it is uniformly compelling, uncompromising and anchored in feeling.

AMNESTY (I) is released on August 19, 2016.
