Crooked Colours to join Crystal Castles at Auckland show

Aussie trio Crooked Colours to join Crystal Castles at Auckland show

As their Australasian shows gets closer, electro-punk extraordinaires Crystal Castles are excited to announce that Australian trio Crooked Colours will be joining them as the opening act for all five shows on the tour.

After an 18 month hiatus, Crooked Colours have just released their first single Flow’from their long awaited LP, which is due out this year. It comes on the back of their break-out success with the singles ‘Come Down’‘Capricious’ and ‘Another Way’, which combined have clocked more than six million streams on Spotify.

Staying true to the style of their previous releases by creating music that has one foot in the indie world and one foot in a darker electronic realm, Crooked Colours are sure to provide plenty of pre-show party vibes before Crystal Castles’ much-anticipated show at the Powerstation in Auckland on May 25.

A ground breaking experimental act, famed for their raucous live shows, Crystal Castleswill be giving Kiwi fans a chance to see their new material live for the first time, as well as playing all the well-loved tracks from their self-titled albums III, and III. The Auckland show comes hot on the heels of announcements that the duo has also been confirmed for two of the biggest festivals on the planet - Coachella and Bonnaroo.

Crystal Castles changed the face of electronic music and club culture when they burst onto the scene in 2008 with their mind-blowing debut self-titled album. Drawing critical acclaim, word spread of their explosive, unforgettable, and visceral live performances, propelling them to the forefront of EDM communities around the world. Headlining shows and major festivals all over the globe, the band went onto forge a reputation as one of the most compelling and energetic live acts in music.

Crystal Castles’ next two albums - Crystal Castles II and (III) - saw them continue to push the envelope and solidify their place in the upper echelons of experimental electronica. Now, with a new album, 2016’s Amnesty (I) to their name, Crystal Castles is writing a new chapter in their already remarkable story. Expect nothing but an explosion of exhilarating energy, with all the favourite crowd-pleasing tunes as well as the band’s freshest material when Crystal Castles plays Auckland on May 25, before heading over to Australia for shows in Sydney (May 28), Brisbane (May 30), Melbourne (June 1) and Fremantle (June 2).
