Crystal Castles was an experimental electronic band formed in 2003 in Toronto consisting of producer Ethan Kath and formerly of vocalist Alice Glass. The duo was known for their chaotic live shows and lo-fi melancholic homemade productions. They released many limited vinyl EPs between 2006 and 2007.

In 2006, their first single/EP "Alice Practice" was released on vinyl and was limited to 500 copies, which sold out in 3 days. Their debut album, Crystal Castles, was released in 2008 and was listed on NME's "Top 100 Greatest Albums of the Decade" list at No. 39.

In 2010, they announced their second album, titled Crystal Castles aka (II), 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. The album has received general acclaim and was placed on many 2010 top critics lists.

Their third album, (III), was released on November 12, 2012. 4 singles have been released: "Plague", "Wrath of God", "Sad Eyes", "Affection".
