Experimental electronic outfit Crystal Castles recently debuted a new song titled `Wrath of God' at the Reading Festival, England.
The song is expected to appear on their forthcoming third album, along with another new song titled `Plague'.
Frontwoman Alice Glass has also released a statement regarding the direction of the new album:
"Oppression is a theme, in general… A lot of bad things have happened to people close to me since II and it's profoundly influenced my writing as I've realized there will never be justice for them. I didn't think I could lose faith in humanity any more than I already had, but after witnessing some things, it feels like the world is a dystopia where victims don't get justice and corruption prevails. I'm one step away from being a vigilante to protect people and bring justice to the people I love. I've thought about it."
Continues Ethan Kath:
"We wanted the new album to sound like a completely different and new experience. Any keyboards and pedals used on I or II were traded for different keyboards and pedals so that there would be a new palette of sounds to work with. We wouldn't allow any computers near the studio, everything had to be recorded to tape. We'd limit ourselves to one take because we believe the first take is the rawest expression of an idea."
