The only time I crossed paths with Crystal Castles, I was curled up in a ball being repeatedly stepped on and kicked in the face. Not the way I envisioned seeing the Canadian electronic act, but you do what you have to do when you’re fighting off the poopoos… right?
That 2011 Coachella show I speak of was back in the day Crystal Castles was led by vocalist Alice Glass. The new Crystal Castles are founder Ethan Kath and new vocalist Edith Frances (pictured).
The acts first effort sans Glass came out last year entitled Amnesty (1).
Crystal Castles are making their third Coachella appearance, they’re scheduled to play on Friday. Let us pray that Bobbie Smith of The Cure joins them on stage.
Here’s some fun songs, new and old.
