Earlier this morning, Alice Glass took to Twitter to announce she’s leaving the experimental electronic band Crystal Castles for multitude of reasons both professional and personal, she claims. Now she has the chance to pursue her solo career and wants fans to embrace the new change. Their debut album, Crystal Castles, was released in 2008 and was listed on NME’s “Top 100 Greatest Albums of the Decade” list at No. 39.
“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.” – Alice Glass
