Few acts in popular music have the stability of Death Grips, so it’s a great shock to see the band have called it quits! Or they’re fucking with us! Or their shit got hacked! Either way, the band just posted a note on their Facebook page announcing their demise, along with a photo of that note written on a napkin. Here’s what they said:
we are now at our best and so Death Grips is over. we have officially stopped. all currently scheduled live dates are canceled. our upcoming double album “the powers that b” will still be delivered worldwide later this year via Harvest/Third Worlds Records. Death Grips was and always has been a conceptual art exhibition anchored by sound and vision. above and beyond a “band”. to our truest fans, please stay legend.
Man, “all currently scheduled live dates are canceled.” Hard to believe this is the last time we’ll hear those words from Death Grips!
UPDATE: Trent Reznor reacts:
sorry everyone… why would I have ever thought those dudes could keep it together?
