In a match that kind of makes sense at a stretch, Toronto hell-raisers Crystal Castles are set to open for electronic veterans Depeche Mode.

The joint dates will take place in Houston on 18 September and Los Angeles on 29 September, as part of the latter band’s mammoth world tour during 2013.

Depeche Mode are scheduled to release new album Delta Machine next week, while Crystal Castles released their third album in 2012.
