ANNOUNCE AUSTRALIAN TOUR
Electro-punk extraordinaires Crystal Castles are excited to announce they will be coming to Australia in May for an exclusive short run of shows.
The ground breaking experimental act, famed for their raucous live shows, will be giving Aussie fans a chance to see their new material live for the first time, as well as playing all the well-loved tracks from their self-tittles albums I, II, and III. The Australian tour will be the first time the band have travelled to our shores since 2013, and comes hot off the heels of announcements that the duo has also been confirmed for two of the biggest festivals on the planet - Coachella and Bonnaroo.
Crystal Castles changed the face of electronic music and club culture when they burst onto the scene in 2008 with their mind-blowing debut self-titled album. Drawing critical acclaim, word spread of their explosive, unforgettable, and visceral live performances, propelling them to the forefront of EDM communities around the world. Headlining shows and major festivals all over the globe, the band went onto forge a reputation as one of the most compelling and energetic live acts in music.
Crystal Castles’ next two albums - Crystal Castles II and (III) - saw them continue to push the envelope and solidify their place in the upper echelons of experimental electronica. Now fronted by a new singer Edith Francis, and with a new album, 2016’s Amnesty (I) to their name, Crystal Castles is writing a new chapter in their already remarkable story.
Expect nothing but an explosion of exhilarating energy, with all the favourite crowd-pleasing tunes as well as the band’s freshest material when Crystal Castles play Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, and Perth.
