Stream Alice Glass’ surprise self-titled solo EP

Former Crystal Castles singer returns with six-track release

Ex-Crystal Castles singer Alice Glass has surprised fans by releasing her solo EP without warning.

Glass parted ways with the noise-electro band in October 2014, with former bandmate Ethan Kath continuing to release music under the moniker with new vocalist Edith Frances. Crystal Castles released their first album without Glass last year with ‘Amnesty (I)’.

Following on from Glass’ debut solo single ‘Stillbirth’ in 2015, Glass returned last week with ‘Without Love’. Now she’s unveiled a self-titled six-track EP. Listen to that below.

Meanwhile, Glass is set to head on tour with Marilyn Manson. The tour kicks off in North America in September.

Glass and former bandmate Kath engaged in a public dispute following the singer’s departure from the band. Glass has said that she was “frustrated” and “desperate” throughout her career with Kath.

“For the majority of my career I was conflicted,” she said last year. “I would go onstage and show this aggressive, angry side of myself. It was an expression of my frustration and desperation. It was a way for me to communicate what I was going through without having to explain anything offstage, because I didn’t want to be seen as vulnerable. It was a way to be confrontational when in my personal life I felt like my feelings weren’t respected. It was deeply miserable.”

Glass added: “I felt like I was lying to my fans even though my way of speaking out was the most honest expression which I had available to me at the time. Now I feel like I’m finally learning to use my voice.”
