Alice Glass to release new remix EP on Friday (April 27), kicks off tour this week

This post was originally published on this site

As we reported a month or two back, Alice Glass — formerly one half of Crystal Castles — is still weathering legal battles with her former bandmate Ethan Kath. But in the meantime, the songwriter is pushing forward. This week is a big one for her: a remix EP drops on Friday, April 27, and she’ll kick off her North American tour the night before in Los Angeles.

The Snowblood tour takes its name after Lady Snowblood, spurned star of the eponymous 1973 Japanese film. Raised as a vengeful samurai, Snowblood exacts revenge for familial rapes and murders by exacting a gory splatterfest on the perps herself. (Oh sorry; hope that doesn’t spoil the plot of that particular “vengeful samurai” film for you!)

Soothing the pain through a catharsis of violence is certainly one way to go. For Glass, music has provided her path, and there’s no doubt that, up on stage, fans will witness the untethered fury her post-Castles output has become known for.

Speaking of untethered: you can also catch Alice throughout North America in May and in parts of Australia in June. Also performing on select dates will be Zola Jesus and Pictureplane, both of whom contributed remixes on the EP.

And speakinf of EP’s: nab the limited edition vinyl before they’re all gone. Vengeance is a dish served ice, frigid cold; but it can be something else too – a motivator.
