Early Wednesday morning, Alice Glass announced on Twitter that she is leaving Crystal Castles, the beloved electronic duo from Toronto, after a successful 10-year run.

But the news wasn't all bad -- Glass suggested she plans to pursue a solo career.

According to Glass, Crystal Castles is no longer a viable outlet for her "art and my self-expression." She did not mention Ethan Kath, the other member of the group.

Crystal Castles' last album, III, came out in 2012, and peaked at No. 2 on Billboard's Dance/Electronic Albums chart.
