One day after releasing their new song “Plague”, Crystal Castles have revealed more details about their upcoming third studio album. The currently untitled effort was recorded and self-produced in Warsaw, is currently being mixed in London, and will be released in late September via Universal Republic/Casablanca, reports NME.

Update: The band has also announced North American tour dates with HEALTH, which you can find mapped out below.

In an interview with NME, Ethan Kath said the new album will sound a lot like the last two. “There’s no departure. We like how we sound. We don’t wanna change.”

Alice Glass added, “There’s lots of themes, but feeling, like, oppressed… A lot of things not personally happening to us, since the past record, but people we know kind of profoundly influenced everything. Like, I didn’t think I could lose faith in humanity any more than I already had, but after witnessing some things, it just… the world is a dystopia. I’m on step away from being a vigilante. I’ve thought about it”.

Below, you can listen to the aforementioned “Plague”.
