Crystal Castles have unveiled their new song 'Affection' - scroll down to listen to it.

'Affection' is the latest track from the Canadian duo's forthcoming third album, 'III', following the release of 'Plague' and 'Wrath of God'. 'III' is due to be released on November 12, after having its release date pushed back a week.

In an interview in this week's NME, which is on newsstands now or available digitally Alice Glass hits out at what she describes as a mainstream media that "hates women".

"I think a lot of kids are more sexualised now than they were now than they were years ago and I'm not sure it's a coincidence," she says. "Like fucking Katy Perry spraying people with her fucking dick, her fucking cum gun coming on fucking children. And little girls, like six-year-old girls wearing a shirt with 'I wanna see your [pea] cock' on it"

She added: "Don't prey on vulnerable people like that. Don't encourage little girls to get dressed up, to have cupcakes on their tits to get people to lick them off 'cos that's what you're insinuating."

Glass also said that if Mitt Romney won the forthcoming US presidential election it would "take women back decades". "Even now some of the abortion clinics have been shut down and it's putting women in danger. They've got to cross the border into Mexico to get abortions. And that hasn't happened since the '60s," she says.

Crystal Castles will tour 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.
