That's right, their back. The long promised new Crystal Castles album is back and it's going to be called III. Short on titles, but hopefully big on music, it's an effort from the band that saw keyboard player Ethan Kath enforcing an analog only mindset by abandoning computers for the recording process and getting new synthesizers and keyboards.
But that's not all: "We wanted the new album to sound like a completely different and new experience. We'd limit ourselves to one take on each song because we believe the first take is the rawest expression of an idea," said Ethan. That's the new III album cover above, and it's kind of telling as a press release states the album's focus is a theme of oppression. Check em' out on tour this Fall.
UPDATE: They jus released the first song from the album ... "Wrath of God." Check it out below.
