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.

Yeah, kinda shame. They did great work together.... Nevertheless, I am looking forward to hear her solo stuff. It can't be bad I suppose.

Whyyyyy, I just learned about them and fell in love with them since the last album. :cry:

I hope her solo sounds a lot like Crystal Castles work.

Come back in 10 years and you could be ready to listen to Crystal Castles.

I'm so glad I had the chance to see them twice.

I think Alice's solo music will be more like Tell Me What To Swallow and Child I Will Hurt You, but I'm probably wrong. I would love that to be the case though.

dat shadeee :lol: (but I agree)

anyway, on topic, I don't feel anything by this even though I enjoy their first two albums. The third one can't seem to grow on me at all despite multiple efforts. But it's a shame though, I feel for all the bigger fans than me

lmao I thought Brad's comment meant that their music is kinda futuristic, so it will take 10 years for their music to become 'normal'. :oops: :lol:

Doe Deer remains my alarm-tone. Not sure if I hate it by now or despise it. :lol:

Alice Glass Accuses Crystal Castles Co-Founder Ethan Kath of Rape and Assault

Alice Glass has released a new statement about “why [she] had to leave Crystal Castles.” In the note posted on her website, Glass details years of alleged abuse from Crystal Castles co-founder Ethan Kath (whose real name is Claudio Palmieri). “I met ‘Ethan Kath’ (Claudio Palmieri) when I was in the 10th grade,” Glass writes. “The first time he took advantage of me was when I was around 15.” In addition to physical abuse, Glass says, “He forced me to have sex with him or, he said, I wouldn’t be allowed to be in the band anymore.”
More details and the link to the full statement are in the article.

I don't know what to think :o unbelievable!

These are three albums of my life, they are so dear to me.

I'm so conflicted and disappointed and it's such a shame.

That's disgusting and shocking, but not hard to believe.

I really hope Edith is not enduring the same things.

This was my first thought when they made their statements during the split. People had been posting about Ethan taking advantage of Alice when she was 15, I guess it wasn't just hear say.

Reading her account of things is painful.

The lyrics of Without Love are even more cutting now.

I want to take a chance
I want to be the one to
I want to take a chance
I'm not just blood and tissue
I don't want to play pretend
I don't wanna see tomorrow
Tell me what to spit
Don't tell me what to swallow

Ethan fires back

Moreover, Alice' sister said to a fan on FB that apparently Alice is being manipulated by her current boyfriend to say such things for fame and media attention.

I don't know what to think anymore, really.

And I saw a comment somewhere saying Alice lied about their age difference at the time.

I hate all of this, they're responsible for some of my favourite music ever, I hope they sort this out and the truth comes to light.

I truly think Alice is just using the current situation and doing all the attention whoring she can. When they originally split she was all hate and Ethan was the more graceful one in his statements. It's not usually an abuser MO to be really careful with his words. To menit seems like Alice is the neurotic one needing of all the attention.

How old is Ethan? His Wikipedia says he’s 34, but a lot of blogs are saying he’s actually 39.

I saw the stuff Alice’s sister posted. Not sure how trustworthy she is since Alice has mentioned that her sister hates her before in interviews, and she hasn’t exactly had a stable upbringing after running away from home at 14. However her sister did confirm that Alice and Ethan were in a relationship when she was underage, but claims he wasn’t abusive.

It’s strange how things are coming to light from fans of both artists. Ethan fans are claiming that Jupiter Keyes is still controlling Alice and spreading lies about Ethan. Meanwhile Alice fans have dug up information about his current wife.

Supposedly Ethan married Au Vyst when he was 39 and she was 21. Apparently he’s known her since she was 15. She’s a massive Crystal Castles fan who was best known for cosplaying as Alice. Seems like Ethan is obsessed with Alice’s image, creepy af.

Apparently Au Vyst posted stuff on Instagram that were interpreted as a cry for help against abuse, but they were swiftly deleted.

Weird story as their music, any way I hope its all fake and we won't see next rape/sex abuse of underage scandal.

I love their music, it would be a huge loss for music culture if it ends as abuse scandal.
