WITH SPECIAL GUESTS CROOKED COLOURS
As their Australia/NZ tour dates get closer, electro-punk extraordinaires Crystal Castles are excited to announce that Crooked Colours will be joining them in May for their exclusive short run of shows.
After a significant 18 month hiatus, live electronic trio Crooked Colours have just released their first single ‘Flow’ from their long awaited LP, due winter 2017. After break-out hit singles ‘Come Down’ ‘Capricious’ & ‘Another Way’ earning them Hype Machine no. 1s and over 6 million streams, the band have become a mainstay on the tour and festival circuit for the past few years. Staying true to the style of their previous releases by creating music that has one foot in the indie world and one foot in a darker electronic realm, Crooked Colours are sure to provide plenty of pre-show party vibes before Crystal Castles’ much-anticipated appearances.
The ground breaking experimental act, famed for their raucous live shows, will be giving Aussie fans a chance to see their new material live for the first time, as well as playing all the well-loved tracks from their self-tittles albums I, II, and III. The Australian tour will be the first time the band have travelled to our shores since 2013, and comes hot off the heels of announcements that the duo has also been confirmed for two of the biggest festivals on the planet – Coachella and Bonnaroo.
Crystal Castles changed the face of electronic music and club culture when they burst onto the scene in 2008 with their mind-blowing debut self-titled album. Drawing critical acclaim, word spread of their explosive, unforgettable, and visceral live performances, propelling them to the forefront of EDM communities around the world. Headlining shows and major festivals all over the globe, the band went onto forge a reputation as one of the most compelling and energetic live acts in music.
Crystal Castles’ next two albums – Crystal Castles II and (III) – saw them continue to push the envelope and solidify their place in the upper echelons of experimental electronica. Now with a new album, 2016’s Amnesty (I), to their name, Crystal Castles is writing a new chapter in their already remarkable story. Expect nothing but an explosion of exhilarating energy, with all the favourite crowd-pleasing tunes as well as the band’s freshest material when Crystal Castles play Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, and Perth.
