CRYSTAL STILTS gigs and 2nd album

CRYSTAL STILTS: ‘In Love with Oblivion’ anticipated second record announced. UK tour March 2011

Crystal Stilts have met their perfect match by signing to indiepop label du jour Fortuna POP! who celebrate 15 years as a label this year – and what a way to celebrate. Crystal Stilts’ new album In Love with Oblivion will be released in the UK on 11 April 2011. This follow-up to their much loved and critically acclaimed debut Alight Of Night continues their foray into spooky 60s psych and 80s dream pop but this time with more flourishes of melody and a bigger, more expansive sound. The album will be preceeded by a single from the album “Through The Floor” in March.

Based in Brooklyn (via Florida), Crystal Stilts emerged alongside the active local post-punk indie scene in 2008 whilst forging their own unique path. They built up a heady following stateside and by the time Alight of Night was released in the UK, a flood of accolades followed. In Love With Oblivion sets the bar even higher as they reach dizzying, fuzzy heights as first class purveyors of haunting, atmospheric post-punk pop.
