It’s over: Crystal Castles split up with Alice Glass leaving the band

Glass cites a “multitude of reasons both professional and personal” for her departure.

Crystal Castles have split up, according to vocalist Alice Glass.

Taking to her personal Twitter account, one-half of the Canadian duo said “this is the end of the band” in a message to fans.

Glass is set to embark on a solo career, according to the statement.

She confirmed the news by stating the following:

“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.”

The duo of Alice Glass and Ethan Kath last released an album in 2012, with ‘III’.

Listen to the pair’s collaboration with The Cure’s Robert Smith, ‘Not In Love’, below.
