CRYSTAL CASTLES ANNOUNCE SEPTEMBER US TOUR DATES, HEADLINE HARD SUMMER TOUR THROUGHOUT AUGUST

SEPTEMBER TOUR DATES TO KICK OFF SEPTEMBER 7th in NASHVILLE, TN

NEW ALBUM CRYSTAL CASTLES (II) OUT NOW ON FICTION RECORDS

The enigmatic Toronto-based duo Crystal Castles have extended their North American tour this Fall, continuing their reign following the twelve date HARD Summer Tour and a prime slot at the massive HARD Summer Music Festival in Los Angeles with six headlining shows beginning September 7th in Nashville, TN. Notable electronic dance figures Sinden and Destructo will join the band as they embark on the HARD Summer Tour (along with Rusko, Proxy, and others TBA on select dates).

Touring in support of their new sophomore album Crystal Castles, both tours promise to deliver the volatile, highly potent, and often controversial live shows the band is infamous for. Already garnering universal acclaim, the release of eponymous second full-length has recently found members Ethan Kath and Alice Glass performing the infectious lead single “Celestica” on the BBC’s Later with Jools Holland, along with a raucous interpretation of the same track by mutual admirer Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth. Another new remix for “Suffocation” by Memory Tapes premiered yesterday at Gorilla Vs. Bear.
