Crystal Castles announce their split after Alice Glass quits the band
Canadian electro duo Crystal Castles have split up after singer Alice Glass announced that she would be leaving the band.
Taking to her personal Twitter account, Glass announced: "I am leaving Crystal Castles. My art and my self-expression in any form has always been an attempt towards sincerity, honesty, and empathy for others. For a multitude of reasons both professional and personal I no longer feel that this is possible within Crystal Castles."
She continued: "Although this is the end of the band, I hope my fans will embrace me as a solo artist in the same way they have embraced Crystal Castles."
The duo, which consisted of Glass and multi-instrumentalist Ethan Kath, released three albums during their 10 years together. The last of the albums, which were simply titled (I), (II) and (III), came out in 2012.
