Crystal Castles will no longer continue with Alice Glass after the singer announced she was leaving the band.

The singer said she was leaving the electronic duo for “professional and personal” reasons.

In a statement on her Facebook page, she said: “I am leaving Crystal Castles. My art and my self-expression in any form has always been an attempt towards sincerity, honesty, and empathy for others.

"For a multitude of reasons both professional and personal I no longer feel that this is possible within CC.

“Although this is the end of the band, I hope my fans will embrace me as a solo artist in the same way they have embraced Crystal Castles.”

It has yet to be confirmed if Ethan Kath will continue the band with another vocalist, or embark on other solo projects.

Crystal Castles formed in 2004 in Toronto and became well-known for their chaotic live shows and lo-fi homemade productions.

They released three albums, I (2008), II (2010) and III (2012), which all charted in the UK top 100.
