When Crystal Castles released “Plague” yesterday (listen here), many assume their next album had to be around the corner. They didn’t wait long to let the cat out of the bag: the band’s third LP will be released this September. As of now, it’s untitled, but knowing Castles, it could quite possibly be another untitled effort.
The effort was self-produced in Warsaw, and any fans wondering about a change in sounds need not worry, as Ethan Kath explained to NME, “There’s no departure. We like how we sound. We don’t wanna change.” A risk, perhaps, but if any act can stick with an unchanging sound, it’s one as revered as this one.
