Published Mar 04, 2008In a blow to West coast Crystal Castles fans, the Toronto-based duo have cancelled a string of tour dates after singer Alice Glass was involved in car accident late last week.
In an interview with NME, band-mate Ethan Kath said, "Were on tour and its a bit of a disaster. Alice broke her ribs in a car accident. The doctor said she needs six weeks off but she wants to start playing again next week.
Since the incident, Glass has been released from hospital and the electro outfit plan to take the stage again at SXSW before joining tour-mates HEALTH on the road.
Despite the Crystal Castles setback, HEALTH will move up to the status of headliners and continue to play the dates as scheduled minus Glass and Kath.
