Live Photos: Crystal Castles Bring the Chaos to Majestic Theatre, Detroit

If Crystal Castles’ programming mastermind, Ethan Kath, wanted to annunciate the fact that his band’s newest manifestation was still a thriving instrument of concussive synth and bittersweet melodies, he could have done worse than launching a near 100-date cross-Atlantic tour. Really: Just look at it. In support of last August’s meditative LP Amnesty, this new tour also serves as an introduction of Edith Frances, the vocal axis that roots Kath’s livewire chiptune chaos into an accessible focal point. While Frances’ delivery can be described as elegant and elastic compared to former singer Alice Glass’ shrapnel, shouting diatribes, the new frontwoman commands CC’s live shows with ferocity.

For further proof, check out photographer Reva May’s gallery of Crystal Castle’s Detroit show at the Majestic Theatre from last week, including opener The Guidance.
