Crystal Castles Announces New Lp 'Iii' Out November 5th 2012

Crystal Castles have officially confirmed the release date and title of their forthcoming album.

(III) will receive a global release on November 5th and 6th and is the first of their full-lengths to be produced entirely by Ethan Kath.

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

By ditching their old synthesizers and keyboards used on I and II, Ethan enforced a "strictly no computers" rule in the studio and began recording everything directly to tape. Together the Canadian duo has conjured up a collection of songs that are as raw as they are well rounded. As (III) unfolds, each track will take you to greater heights and equal lows, as you enter the sometimes plagued, and often polarized world that is Crystal Castles.

"Oppression is a theme, in general. A lot of bad things have happened to people close to me since II and it's profoundly influenced my writing as I've realized there will never be justice for them," explains Alice "I didn't think I could lose faith in humanity any more than I already had, but after witnessing some things, it feels like the world is a dystopia where victims don't get justice and corruption prevails."

Recorded mostly in Warsaw and Berlin, the highly anticipated (III) also boasts the haunting and euphoric 5-minute mind-bender 'PLAGUE', that quickly caused a cyber-storm amongst fans and media when the band unveiled it via their soundcloud page this summer.
