Crystal Castles frontwoman Alice Glass has broken her ankle while in Japan en route to Australia for the Big Day Out festival tour, which isn’t much fun.

Speaking to Australian website TheVine from Tokyo last week, Glass’ bandmate Ethan Kath said that they were having a “stressful” day: Alice is injured. We’re at the hospital, having x-rays taken. It appears that she has a broken ankle. Maybe she’ll be doing [the Australian shows] in a wheelchair. I’m not sure”.

In the end, it didn’t quite come to that, as Glass has been performing on crutches since the touring festival began making its way around Oz on Friday, and the duo’s publicist has confirmed that they will play all their scheduled dates as planned.
