2012 just got bit more fantastic.
The lo-fi, electronic duo that is Crystal Castles (Alice Glass & Ethan Kath), are working on their third LP. In an interview with NME’s print edition, Kath confirmed that the duo will begin work on the new record this month, with an expected release date of “sometime this Summer”. Seeing as how the first two LPs were both self-titled, i’m gonna go out on a limb and guess they’ll continue this trend.
In other Crystal Castles news, the duo is among the first acts to be confirmed for this year’s Lovebox festival, along with Hot Chip, Friendly Fires, Little Dragon, Penguin Prison, Azealia Banks (check the complete lineup here). Lovebox 2012 runs July 15-17 in London’s Victoria Park.
