Electronic extraordinaires Crystal Castles have just announced a New Zealand show as part of their upcoming MJR Presents tour Downunder.
The groundbreaking experimental act, which hails from Toronto, Canada, will play at Auckland’s iconic Powerstation on Thursday, May 25. It comes hot on the heels of announcements that Crystal Castles has also been confirmed for two of the biggest festivals on the planet - Coachella and Bonnaroo.
Crystal Castles changed the face of electronic music when they burst onto the club scene in 2008 with their mind-blowing debut self-titled album. It drew critical acclaim and propelled them to the forefront of EDM communities around the world.
Headlining shows and major festivals all over the globe, the band went onto forge a reputation as one of the most compelling and energetic live acts in music.
Crystal Castles’ next two albums - Crystal Castles II and III - saw them continue to push the envelope and solidify their place in the upper echelons of EDM. Now fronted by a new singer, Edith Frances, and with a new album, 2016’s Amnesty (I) to their name; Crystal Castles is writing a new chapter in their already remarkable story.
Expect nothing but an explosion of exhilarating energy, with all the favourite crowd-pleasing tunes as well as the band’s freshest material, when Crystal Castles returns to New Zealand for their one and only show at the Powerstation on May 25.
