WATCH ‘AFFECTION’ HERE

Today Crystal Castles revealed their official video for their new single ‘Affection’,

The video for the single is an abstract tour documentary filmed after shows in Buenos Aires, Argentina (Apr 4 2013) and Bogotá, Colombia (Apr 7 2013). Alice was filmed by Ethan, Crystal Castles filmed by Chris Chartrand (the bands live drummer), and Ashley McMinn was filmed by Marc Pannozzo (long time Crystal Castles video collaborator). The footage was then stitched together in London by Stephen Agnew (Editor & Video Glitch Artist), creating the perfect visuals to accompany the gorgeously melodic and haunting single.

‘Affection’ is set for it’s official release on May 28 in the U.S and will feature bonus material, soon to be announced.

Crystal Castles are currently on the road for their headlining tour accross North America and will be winding up at The Governor’s Ball and Lollapalooza Festivals this summer. More dates for the Depeche Mode tour this fall have been added (see below).

Their current album titled (III) is available on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and in all good record stores across the U.S. (Casablanca/Fiction/Republic).
