Crystal Castles have a new album, which they've mysteriously titled (III). It’s the first of their full-lengths to be produced entirely by Ethan Kath. "We wanted the new album to sound like a completely different and new experience," said Kath in an official statement. “We'd limit ourselves to one take on each song because we believe the first take is the rawest expression of an idea."
By ditching their old synthesizers and keyboards used on I and II, Ethan enforced a “strictly no computers” rule in the studio and began recording everything directly to tape. Together the Canadian duo has conjured up a collection of songs that are as raw as they are well rounded. As (III) unfolds, each track will take you to greater heights and equal lows, as you enter the sometimes plagued, and often polarized world that is Crystal Castles.
To celebrate the release of (III) we got our hands on a Crystal Castles prize pack containing all three of their albums to date - (I), (II) and (III) – as well as a limited edition (III) t-shirt and also very hard-to-come-by gigantic street poster of the new album’s distinctive and haunting cover art.
