New Crystal Castles Album To Be Rush Released on Friday


Oh you Internet leakers, when will your reign of terror end? A carefully planned promo campaign for Crystal Castles' new album, which is self-titled just like the band’s first record, is lying on a record company floor in tatters at present, as fans of the group take to the Internet and download a copy that leaked at the weekend.


To combat this thievery, some rumors were put out that this version could be a demo, but with everyone doubting the veracity of that statement, the band has decided to rush release the album this Friday (April 23). Initially it will only be a digital version of the album, with physical formats following on May 24. The record was originally due for release in early June.


You can hear “Celestica” from the album in the YouTube clip above.

You think this is for the US too or just the UK?

I'd imagine it's US as well. I don't think it would be a wise move to release it in April in the UK and June in the US.

Banger said he liked it on his Twitter. But then again, he mostly talks about his dog on there, so maybe we shouldn't trust him?

The new album is ggggrrreeaaatttt! Can't wait to buy it on itunes on friday (hopefully if it hits the US) and then the physical copy when it drops.


I just got the album last night. Its real good, I'm in love with at least half the tracks already and the others will probably grow on me.
Very different than there first album. Someone has posted most of it on youtube too.

Some tracks to check out:
doe deer
year of silence
pap smear
not in love

lol.... so pretty much the entire album


just got the press release....
Due to phenomenal demand and anticipation around the news of the forthcoming second self-titled Crystal Castles album on Fiction Records, the US will be following suit with the advanced UK digital release by making the album available immediately on Monday April 26th.
