Electro-punk duo Crystal Castles has confirmed that its third album is currently in production and set for release this summer via Fiction/Universal.
 
This is the first time the band has been in the studio since its 2010 release, II. While the last album was partially recorded in Iceland, the duo from Toronto has now moved to Warsaw, Poland to craft its third LP. “We never do meaningless,” producer Ethan Kath told NME (via Pitchfork) in January. “Every song we write is bleak. We don’t want anything else.”
 
You can check out the bleak Ethan Kath directed video for “Suffocation” from II on the Vs. Magazine site. The video features singer Alice Glass looking very fashionable and sad in a bleak setting. You can also hear a remix of the track by L.A. noise dance punks HEALTH here.
 
Below, watch the bleak video for “Baptism,” also off of II.
