Crystal Castles, a Canadian electronic duo, has been taking their punk-rock inspired electronic sound throughout the nation over the past 2 years. They gained attention back in 2008 when they released their self-titled first album, Crystal Castles. From underground punk scenes to raves, their music gained a wide fan base, and it has only grown since then. Their most recent album, Amnesty (I), has the haunting, spooky sound they are known for, but displays how much they grew as artists with exciting vocals from a new vocalist and high-energy production.
Their live performances have also improved as they have been touring over the past year. They always bring incredible energy and have the crowd hyped with fantastic live vocals, sound, and lights. Catch their exhilarating vibes at ACL this October – they will be playing at the Honda stage at 4:15 both Fridays (6th and 13th) of the festival.
