Last November, Ethan Kath rebuilt the Crystal Castles with Edith Frances after Alice Glass quit the band. The duo has since played a few shows in its new form, but now Pitchfork reports that it’s launching a full-on world tour. The nearly-50 date tour will kick off in North Carolina in September, and wrap up in Luxembourg this winter. Crystal Castles have a forthcoming album whose title is as yet unknown, but they’ve has been rolling out tracks like “Frail” and Decide.” There’s no word on a release date, but just yesterday, the band released the video for “Concrete,” which features Frances bopping around at a show. (A complete list of tour dates is posted below the video.)
