The new Death Grips album has leaked well ahead of its proposed 31st March album release date which is kinda no suprise with this lot who cannot help themselves to a bit of unpredictability and controversy.
Jenny Death, the 2nd part of ‘The Powers That B’ is loaded with their traditional digital punk sound that we can’t get enough. Glad they didn’t call it a day!

Here’s a remix or mash up that we never thought we would ever hear. Death Grips have taken the Prodigy’s ‘Firestarter’ to the cleaners and came back with a dirty take on Liam Howlett’s legendary work. Some will like, others will choke on it. You decide.
Death Grips continue to punk their record label Epic Records today by sharing the email sent to the band asking them not to give away their album for free on the internet. This is either a great press stunt for all, or they are legitimately not giving a toss. You decide, but in the meantime read this. The band just posted this saying: “HAHAHAHAHAHAHA NOW FUCK OFF”.
Death Grips promised they would release two albums in 2012, and it seems they are sticking to their word… First up was the awesome ‘The Money Store’, next up the experimental unit will be back this autumn with the second installment of ‘Epic Records’ releases, with ‘NO LOVE DEEP WEB‘. Death Grips have released a very matter-of-fact statement about the forthcoming album. Here’s what was said:
The album is titled NO LOVE DEEP WEB.
We are working on 20 tracks and looking to narrow down to 13.
It will be released by epic records in the US and Columbia in the UK.
The release is scheduled for fall 2012. most likely late October.
We are in correspondence with Crispin Glover and working toward a video collaboration with him relating to this album.
We’ve been recording the album primarily in Sacramento , CA. and Oakland , CA. for the past five months.
We will be mixing it in Shanghai , Vhina.
There are no manually programmed drums on this album , the beats are being played live on a roland electronic v-drum set or acoustic drum set by zach. There are no features , guest collabs or outside producers.
The material is cold , bass heavy , minimal , rock & roll influenced and could simultaneously fit into a rave or dance club context.
It is essentially rap and electronic music while at times extremely aggressive.
We plan on supporting this release live internationally.
*the track that comes out sept.10 as part of the adult swim series is a previously unreleased track from the Money Store and is totally unrelated to the new album NO LOVE DEEP WEB.
NO LOVE DEEP WEB is another sound and vibe entirely.
