Crystal Castles’ Tour Dates Canceled Following Sexual Abuse Allegations

In the wake of former Crystal Castles singer Alice Glass’ allegations of physical, mental, and sexual abuse against former bandmate Ethan Kath, nearly all of the group’s forthcoming tour dates have been canceled. Of the dates listed on the band’s website, each venue’s ticket-sales options says either that the show has been canceled or tickets are unavailable — except for the Voodoo Festival in New Orleans, the status of which was unclear at press time.

“[Kath] was very manipulative towards me,” Glass wrote in a long Facebook post Tuesday. “Over a period of many months, he gave me drugs and alcohol and had sex with me in an abandoned room at an apartment he managed. It wasn’t always consensual… He [also] became physically abusive. He held me over a staircase and threatened to throw me down it. He picked me up over his shoulders and threw me onto concrete… He controlled everything I did.”

Kath responded: “I am outraged and hurt by the recent statements made by Alice about me and our prior relationship. Her story is pure fiction and I am consulting my lawyers as to my legal options. Fortunately, there are many witnesses who can and will confirm that I was never abusive to Alice.”

Canceled dates include:

10/24 Santa Ana, CA – The Observatory

10/25 San Diego, CA – The Observatory North Park

11/02 Seattle, WA – Showbox

11/03 Vancouver, BC – Vogue
