The Toronto noisemakers share their latest video, which is exactly what you’d expect.

The video for (III) standout ‘Affection’ is a lo-fi, tape-effected clip featuring the duo looking forlorn amid strobes, fireworks, and strangely-masked figures — so another day in the life of Crystal Castles.

Ethan Kath and Alice Glass have also extended their seemingly-endless tour in support of the album, adding a handful of dates opening for Depeche Mode that will keep them occupied into October. FACT’s review of (III) found the album to be their most cohesive personal statement yet. [via Pitchfork]
