Crystal Castles have split after singer Alice Glass announced her departure from the duo on Twitter.
The band formed of singer Alice Glass and instrumentalist Ethan Kath formed in 2004 and released 3 studio albums, the last of which being III in 2012.
Speaking on her twitter page, Alice Glass announced she was leaving the band “For a multitude of reasons both professional and personal”.
“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 CC. 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.”
I am leaving Crystal Castles.
