Education

Talking about her academic qualification, she studied at a parochial school until she was in junior high. After leaving her house, she might have left her school or college.

Professional Career

Alice Glass and Ethan Kath began working on the project that would become Crystal Castles in December 2003. Later, she chose the stage name Alice Glass after swiping a pin with the name Alice and Hopey Glass, a character in Love and Rockets.

Crystal Castles’ first official release was the song “Alice Practice” in 2006. The song landed the band their first record deal with Merok Records in London. Crystal Castles performed their debut live show at Clinton’s Tavern in Toronto the same year. “Alice Practice” was finally included on their self-titled first album, released in 2008.

Glass topped NME’s Cool List that year and replied by criticizing the idea of the cool list itself. Following their debut album, the team released two more critically praised albums, II (2010) and III (2012), completing a trilogy.

She announced her departure from Crystal Castles in October 2014, for professional and personal reasons. She later had several public spats with her former bandmate, accusing him of assault and sexual misconduct.

Alice Glass and the lawsuit

Glass released her debut solo song, “Stillbirth” in July 2015.  The release was primarily intended to raise awareness about domestic and sexual violence. She collaborated with the anti-sexual assault organization RAINN to donate all profits from the song’s sales to abuse victims.

Moreover, she released “Without Love” in August 2017, providing the first single off her eponymous debut EP, which was released the following week. Following the release of the EP, she went on tour with Marilyn Manson.

She released a statement on her official website in October 2017 explaining her departure from Crystal Castles, claiming co-founder Ethan Kath of sexual, physical, and emotional abuse.

The allegations explain the abuse, which began when Glass was 15 and began recording with Kath and continued until her departure from Crystal Castles. She reacted the same day through his attorney, calling the claims “pure fiction” and said that he was consulting with his lawyers about his legal options.

Kath sued Glass for defamation the following month, but her case was rejected in February 2018.  After Kath’s lawyers tried to overturn the rejection of his defamation lawsuit against Glass, Glass was paid roughly $21,000 in legal costs in May.

Non-album single releases

Glass released “Forgiveness” as the EP’s second single in January 2018. That same month, she released a new song titled “Cease and Desist.” Both singles were supported by music videos.

She began her SnowBlood Tour in April 2018, featuring American singer Zola Jesus, with electronic artist Pictureplane performing as an opening act on select dates. Later the same month, she released a remix EP, which featured remixes of songs from her 2017 eponymous EP.

She released a new single, “Mine” in June 2018, along with a music video directed by Lucas David and starring American drag queen Violet Chachki.

Prey//IV

On January 6, 2021, she released the single “Suffer and Swallow” the first song from her long-awaited solo debut album, which she indicated will be released later that year.  She made a cameo on Alice Longyu Gao’s song “Legend” which was released on May 27, 2021.

She revealed the title and track listing for her solo debut album Prey/IV on November 19, 2021, and set a release date of January 28, 2022, under her own Eating Glass Records.

The announcement was accompanied by the single “Baby Teeth” which was accompanied by a music video directed by Astra Zero and Lucas David.

She released the single “Fair Game” on December 8, 2021, along with a music video directed by Bryan M. Ferguson. Glass released “Love Is Violence” on January 28, 2022, after the album’s release date was pushed out to February.

Bryan M. Ferguson made a horrific music video for the single. The video, which was inspired by the early 2000s, portrays two youngsters sensually pulling out one other’s innards.
