Crystal Castles push new album release to November
The electro duo's third LP will come out the same month they tour the UK
Though the band had already told NME that their new LP would be released later this month, they have now updated their Facebook page with a message which simply reads: "new album = november"
The LP was recorded in Warsaw and mixed in London. Band member Ethan Kath is on production duties for the as-yet-untitled record, which is the follow-up to 2010's 'II'.
Speaking about the sound of the new material, Kath told NME: "There's no departure. We like how we sound. We don't wanna change".
Alice Glass added: "There's lots of themes, but feeling, like, oppressed… A lot of things not personally happening to us, since the past record, but people we know, kind of profoundly influenced everything. Like, I didn't think I could lose faith in humanity any more than I already had, but after witnessing some things, it just… the world is a dystopia. I'm one step away from being a vigilante. I've thought about it".
Crystal Castles also play the UK this November. The tour comprises six shows, kicking off at Birmingham's HMV Institute on November 22 and ending at Manchester Academy on November 28. The run of shows also includes dates in Norwich, Glasgow, Leeds and a big gig at London's O2 Academy Brixton.
