Hear the new single, 'Wrath of God', below.

Following facebook teasers and a string of rumours, Crystal Castles have announced details of their new album, and a new single.

"We wanted the new album to sound like a completely different and new experience," says Ethan Kath, "we'd limit ourselves to one take on each song because we believe the first take is the rawest expression of an idea."

The album is entitled (III), and will be released on November 5th. Your first chance to hear their new single, 'Wrath of God', will come tonight when Zane Lowe plays it out. It will then become available from 8pm via soundcloud (be sure to head back here to hear it!).

The artwork (by photojournalist Samuel Arand) can be seen below, along with their forthcoming tour dates and video for 'Plague'.
