Crystal Castles gave fans a treat on Halloween by revealing new track “Affection”, off their upcoming LP (III), out November 12th. “Plague” and “Wrath of God” have preceded the album as well, though “Affection” will likely be the last preview before the album’s release in two weeks.
Half of the duo, Alice Glass, touched on the release’s themes in an August statement:
[quote]”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.”[/quote]
