Crystal Castles have confirmed that their next album will be released in September.
The punishing electro duo, who returned with new single 'Plague' yesterday, told NME that their third record is being mixed in London right now, having been recorded in Warsaw earlier this year.
Speaking to the magazine about the album, Alice Glass said: “There’s lots of themes [to the album] 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.”
Adding: “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”.
'Plague' doesn't stray far from the CC manifesto, packed as it is with harsh beats, an oppressive atmosphere and Alice Glass's high octane vocals. However, if you are already a fan of the likes of 'Alice Practice' and 'Crimewave' you'll enjoy it. It's free too, which is nice.
