Listen: Crystal Castles Share “Char”

Band announces fourth studio album 'AMNESTY (I)'

Following the release of “Concrete“, an unnerving club track the band shared last week, Crystal Castles are back with another new single called “Char”.

This is the second single from the band featuring Edith Frances. Following the departure of Alice Glass in October 2014, France’s since taken over vocal duties. “Char” is a dizzying mix of synthesizers and drowned out vocals. Take a listen in the player above.
