Alice Glass first went public about the abuse she experienced from former bandmate Ethan Kath in 2017, which resulted in Kath (real name Claudio Palmieri) filing a defamation lawsuit, and denying Glass' claims.

In a series of tweets posted yesterday (14 October), Glass shut down rumours that she receives all Crystal Castles royalties by writing, "apparently there’s some rumor being spread that I receive all the royalties from Crystal Castles music. I DONT. in fact, I’m being gutted. STREAM ALICE GLASS."

Glass wrote in a second tweet that she "had to leave Crystal Castles for my own safety", and urged fans to "spread the word about my music." She also told fans to not endorse Crystal Castles, "even though it was my life’s work, I DO NOT endorse crystal castles and neither should you. STREAM ALICE GLASS."

In the final tweet on the subject, Glass added, "and YES I have a record coming soon. She is the culmination of years of literal blood sweat sobs screams and tears. She is amazing and she cant wait to meet you."

In August Alice Glass returned with new solo track "NIGHTMARES", which appeared on the Sermon 4 Anniversary compilation.
