Not together unfortunately. That would be a sight to behold! Two seperate stories here, pushed into the same post 'cos I'm in a little bit of a rush!
Crystal Castles Return With New Single & Tour
Since bursting onto the scene in 2008, Crystal Castles have become quite the cult act. They have a huge following all over the world, no less here in Ireland. Their live shows in particular are exciting. They return with a new 12" single Doe Deer which is going to be a Record Store Day exclusive limited to just 500 copies so I doubt any will hit this side of the Atlantic unfortunately. However they have announced a number of tour dates (None in Ireland yet, though I'm expecting either Oxegen or the Picnic, as well as perhaps one or two gigs in the country)
They will play:
04-03 Toronto, Ontario - Twist Art Gallery
04-12 Los Angeles, CA - Echoplex
04-14 New York, NY - Irving Plaza
04-17 Lisbon, Portugal - Coliseum
04-20 London, England - Heaven
04-22 Berlin, Germany - Ritter Butzke
04-23 Amsterdam, Netherlands - Trouw
04-24 Brussels, Belgium - Botanique Orangerie
04-26 Paris, France - Nouveau Casino
04-27 Zurich, Switzerland - Rosthoflager
04-28 Milan, Italy - Magazzini Generali
04-30 Murcia, Spain - La Fica Estrella LaVenta 404 Festival
07-11 Novi Sad, Serbia - Exit Festival
07-31 Emmaboda, Sweden - Emmaboda Festival
Reading & Leeds can be added to that list too.
