CRYSTAL CASTLES ANNOUNCE SIDESHOWS

The last time Crystal Castles were in Australia, front woman Alice Glass proved just how rock star she could be, ignoring doctor’s orders to cancel their appearances at the Big Days Out due to a broken ankle. Instead, she took to the stage on crutches and continued to blow everyone’s minds with her karate-inspired antics. She’s now had some time to rest up for Crystal Castles return, joining the summer festival circuit right here in Australia. Along with sets at Falls Festival, Field Day and Southbound, Crystal Castles will be heading to both Brisbane and Adelaide for two mega sideshows.

Forming in 2004, the Ontario-based duo of Glass and Ethan Kath began their cult following by releasing a slew of sell-out limited edition singles, and packing out shows purely by word of mouth. Fast forward a few years and by the time their self-titled debut album was released in 2008, they’d already amassed a legion of international fans from their enigmatic persona – equally immediate as their unique brand of intense, uncompromising electronic dance music. Their follow up album in 2010, also self –titled, and their intense commitment to touring have only cemented what fans have known for years: Crystal Castles are a force to be reckoned with.

GOOD GRIEF - McKISKO launches in QUEENSLAND!

McKisko

"..her voice is so full of raw intensity that it packs a heart-rending punch. Even on the more uptempo songs there is a warped broodiness lurking just under the surface…totally engaging and thoroughly exhilarating..." éééé Sydney Morning Herald

"Her songs have the immediacy and simplicity of a Vashti Bunyan, matched with a kind of emotional rawness and vulnerability reminiscent of early Cat Power or Nico’s solo work. She’s the real deal, and one to watch …” - Rave Magazine

"...gorgeous, minimalist tunes with fiery blood... there is a folk-ish temper to her music, but McKisko is more glorious and wilful than the word allows. Amazing." – Beat Magazine
