Alice Glass has announced via Twitter (of course) that she is leaving the band Crystal Castles to focus on a solo career. Comprising Glass on vocals and producer Ethan Kath – plus a host of session musicians for live shows – the move means an end to Crystal Castles following three studio albums, released since 2008.

Whether Glass’ new material will follow the same electro-punk feel as those albums remains to be seen, but one thing’s for sure – her penchant for putting on a wild live show is likely to remain when the time comes to hit the road on a solo tour.
