Crystal Castles are a Canadian electronic experimental band formed in 2004 in Toronto consisting of producer Ethan Kath and vocalist Alice Glass. Crystal Castles are known for their chaotic live shows and their lo-fi melancholic Homemade Productions. The duo released many limited vinyl EPs between 2006 and 2007.

In 2006, their first single/EP "Alice Practice" was released on vinyl. The release was limited to only 300 copies. "Alice Practice" would later be included on their debut album, released in 2008. Other singles from the album include "Crimewave", "Air War", "Courtship Dating" and "Vanished". The album received highly positive reviews and was listed on NME's "Top 100 Greatest Albums of the Decade" list at No. 39.

In 2010, they announced their sophomore album after they released their first studio EP, Celestica/Doe Deer. The album was their first release to chart on the Billboard Hot 100, and includes their first worldwide charting single, "Not In Love" featuring RoBert Smith of The Cure. They re-released the album in 2011 as (II). The album has received general acclaim and was placed on many 2010 top critics lists.

Their third eponymous album is set to be released today, November 12, 2012. Two singles were previously released: "Plague" and "Wrath of God".
