The Internet Is Utterly Devastated That Crystal Castles Broke Up

RIP Crystal Castles. RIP our youth.

Posted on

The news was broken on Twitter when vocalist Alice Glass announced that she was leaving the band to pursue a solo career.

For a multitude of reasons both professional and personal I no longer feel that this is possible within CC.

And others just really needing a personal day.

I'm sick as hell today, I have a ton of work to catch up on, and @CRYSTALCASTLESS just broke up. Let's just go ahead and skip today, yeah?

But amid the melancholy, some people took to Twitter to thank the band for being a part of their adolescence and all of its growing pains.

Thanks @CRYSTALCASTLESS for making my middle school years awesome

As corny as it is, I've loved crystal castles since middle school, meaning that their music has been there with me through everything...

So to anyone who just doesn't understand your now blackened, grief-stricken, emo heart, just tell them to have a little:

"Shut up about crystal castles" wow have some
