9 October 2014, 14:31
Singer Alice Glass has tweeted she has left the band… but the duo's manager suggests it's not over yet.
In a series of tweets, the singer with the Canadian synth punk duo said she was leaving over "professional and personal" reasons and that the band was effectively over.
I am leaving Crystal Castles.— ALICE GLASS (@ALICEGLASS) October 8, 2014
My art and my self-expression in any form has always been an attempt towards sincerity, honesty, and empathy for others.— ALICE GLASS (@ALICEGLASS) October 8, 2014
For a multitude of reasons both professional and personal I no longer feel that this is possible within CC.— ALICE GLASS (@ALICEGLASS) October 8, 2014
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.— ALICE GLASS (@ALICEGLASS) October 8, 2014
However, the band's manager told the NME: "There will be twists and turns ahead for Crystal Castles, I wouldn't bury the dead just yet!"
Crystal Castles released three self-titled albums between 2008 and 2012. They're probably best known for their collaboration with The Cure's Robert Smith, Not In Love, from 2010.
