Alice Glass, the electro-punk singer and former member of Crystal Castles, is heading out on tour across North America this spring. More importantly, she’ll be doing so alongside fellow vocalist Zola Jesus and electronic artist Pictureplane for a handful of dates starting on April 26 in Los Angeles, and running until May 19 with a performance at the Santa Teresa Festival in Saint Therese, Quebec.
Titled the Snowblood Tour, the upcoming run will feature both Zola Jesus and Glass co-headlining shows across the country over a three-and-a-half week trek. The tour’s announcement earlier this week follows the release of Glass’ “Cease And Desist” stand-alone single back in January, and a six-track EP in 2017. She didn't provide any update about a potential full album release to go with the new tour announcement, but fans of both artists should be happy to hear Zola Jesus’ new remix of Glass’ 2015 “STILLBIRTH,” which was also released today and can be heard in the audio-only video above. Looks like we’ve got ourselves a new musical friendship here folks!
Zola Jesus (real name, Nicole Hummel) released her own new studio LP last year with Okovi. The album would go on to peak at No. 8 on Billboard’s Dance/Electronic Album Sale Chart, and offered fans a unique glimpse into how the 28-year-old artist used music to deal with her own dark demons.
While Glass may not have any update on whether or not a full album will be arriving this year, she did share some positive personal news via her Twitter on Friday afternoon. She had been in a court battle with Crystal Castles member Ethan Kath following allegations of physical, sexual and psychological abuse made against her former bandmate. Kath had filed a defamation suit which appeared to have been dropped on Friday, according to Glass.
“I won in court today!! The defamation lawsuit against me was dismissed! Thank you so much for the love and support throughout this ugly process,” she said in a pair of tweets shortly after 12 p.m. on Friday, which can be read below. “This is a victory for survivors of abuse and sexual misconduct in countries where abusers use the court system to further victimize and keep people silent. WE WILL NOT BE SILENCED.”
Proceeds from Glass’ 2015 release of “STILLBIRTH” were all sent to benefit to RAINN, a charity set up to help victims of sexual and domestic abuse.
