It seems Crystal Castles have officially broken up. However, it's not all sad news: Alice Glass has announced she'll be releasing music as a solo artist.

"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," tweeted Glass - along with a few details regarding her decision (which you can read below).

Their most recent album, III, was released back in 2012 by Last Gang.
