Crystal Castles have confirmed a late September release for their as-yet-untitled third record, which was tracked in Krakow and mixed in London. Speaking to the NME, producer Ethan Kath said the new songs aren’t a departure because the duo simply “like how we sound. We don’t wanna change.”

As for what the album may be about, singer Alice Glass said, “There’s lots of themes, but feeling, like, oppressed:A lot of things not personally happening to us, since the past record, but people we know kind of profoundly influenced everything. Like, I didn’t think I could lose faith in humanity any more than I already had, but after witnessing some things, it just:the world is a dystopia. I’m one step away from being a vigilante. I’ve thought about it.”
