Crystal Castles have announced that their second album will be self-titled and released on June 7.

The Toronto duo, Ethan Kath and Alice Glass, have also confirmed that following the release of the album they will play the Glastonbury festival twice – on June 26 and 27 - despite their last appearance at the festival almost ending with them being pulled offstage.

The tracklisting of 'Crystal Castles' will be:

'Fainting Spells'
'Doe Deer'
'Year Of Silence'
'Violent Dreams'
'Pap Smear'
'Not In love'
'I Am Made Of Chalk'

Meanwhile, the band are set to release 500 copies of new album song 'Doe Deer' on 12-inch vinyl on Saturday (April 17) for Record Store Day.

See the new issue of NME, on UK newsstands tomorrow (April 14), for an exclusive report from Crystal Castles' recent inimate hometown show, which saw them previewing songs from the new album in an art gallery.
