Au fait with the craze for literal and numerical LP titles (Beyonce and Bloc Party’s newest, to name but two), Crystal Castles have officially given their third LP the title ‘(III)’. As well as that, they’ve also revealed that it’ll be released on 5 Nov.

As noted way back in August, Crystal Castles will also begin a headlining tour on 22 Nov at the Birmingham Institute.
