Crystal Castles debuted a new track during a show in Denver earlier this week – scroll down to the bottom of the page and click to listen.

According to Consequence Of Sound, the duo played the song during their gig at the city's Ogden Theatre on Wednesday (October 17), with a fan later uploading the track to YouTube and claiming it is titled 'Telepath' – one of the songs which is included on the tracklisting for the band’s forthcoming new album 'III'.

Earlier this week (October 18), Crystal Castles revealed that they had pushed the release of the new album back by a week. 'III', which is unsurpisingly the band’s third album and the first to be produced entirely by Ethan Kath, was originally set for release on November 5 but will now be put out on November 12. You can also hear another track from the LP, 'Wrath Of God', by scrolling down and clicking.

"We wanted the new album to sound like a completely different and new experience," Kath said in a statement. "We'd limit ourselves to one take on each song because we believe the first take is the rawest expression of an idea."

While recording in Warsaw, Kath adopted a "strictly no computers" rule in the studio, scrapping their old keyboards and synths and instead recording everything directly to tape.

Speaking to NME previously about the new record, Alice Glass said: "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."

The album's artwork is a shot taken by photojournalist Samuel Arand, which features Fatima al-Qaws cradling her son Zayed who is suffering from the effects of tear gas after participating in a demonstration in Sanaa, Yemen.

The tracklisting for 'III' is as follows:

'Plague'
'Kerosene'
'Wrath of God'
'Affection'
'Pale Flesh'
'Sad Eyes'
'Insulin'
'Transgender'
'Violent Yout'
'Telepath'
'Mercenary'
'Child I Will Hurt You'
