Almost two years after the release of their debut album, that for some is one of the best albums released in the ‘00s, Crystal Castles will release their new album ‘Crystal Castles’ -yes, the same name as their debut album- on June 17th via Fiction Records. Filled up with melodic (you can actually hear Alice Glass singing!), trancey tracks like single ‘Celestica’ (digital single out on April 17th, 2010) and of course the classic Crystal Castles ‘8bit-punk’ tracks like ‘Doe Deer’ (released on 12’’ vinyl on April 17th, 2010). A very interesting and experimental album.

On 20th May 2010, H&M launches its third Fashion Against AIDS campaign, which includes the first festival collection, with 25% of the sales donated to youth HIV/AIDS awareness projects. Sold through the Divided youth departments, the collection for both guys and girls will encompass the whole festival experience, from clothes and accessories through to tents and sleeping bags, all the while raising funds to promote the message of safe sex.
