CRYSTAL CASTLES

After 2 chaotic yet captivating live performances in 2008 and 2010 Crystal Castles are back! With a new album that is due to release later this year the band will certainly be touching uncharted territory in the world of electronic music. Utilizing sounds from crisp, 8-bit chip tunes to melodic and ambient noise, Crystal Castles are creating something refreshing and their fans will have the chance to drink up this sound live at the Rockhal on 2 December 2012.

No matter how much Crystal Castles insist they're named after She-Ra's fortress and not the 1983 arcade favourite, thanks to the Atari sound chips in their keyboards, their music evokes vintage video game soundtracks. On their self-titled debut, Crystal Castles (aka Ethan Kath and Alice Glass) hurl eight-bit bleeps, bloops, and noise as relentlessly as Space Invaders marching down a screen, turning these sounds into sometimes chaotic, sometimes moody synth pop with a sharp edge. Their 2010 released album was produced by Ethan Kath in various places including a church in Iceland, a self built cabin in northern Ontario and an abandoned convenience store garage in Detroit Michigan.

Crystal Castles are known not only for their own efforts as a band, but also for commissioned remixes for number of groups, including "Hunting for Witches" by Bloc Party, and "Atlantis to Interzone" by friends and label mates, Klaxons. They have been drawing big crowds on their worldwide concert schedules, where they play alongside some of the biggest names in music.

Looking closely at it, Crystal Castles are a real phenomenon: they make dark, wild, yet absolutely danceable electro music. Even though it has more pop elements, the style remains just as rhythmic and balanced between electro, punk and rock. This year heralds the arrival of their third album and this is your chance to catch a band that will inevitably put on a phenomenal show.

As the real strength and subtlety of Crystal Castles reveals itself on stage. Alice’s passion for stage diving only increases Crystal Castles’ position as one of the most up-to-date and promising electro bands. On 2 December, the Rockhal Club will be ravaged by a tornado called Crystal Castles.
