Take all of this with a grain of salt, but it looks like Death Grips could possibly maybe perhaps be going on tour. A Twitter account that is speculated to be associated with the “broken-up” group sent out the following message last night: “we’re going on tour.”
The only solid evidence we have that the account (@bbpoltergiest) is actually affiliated with the group is that it tweeted out what appears to be a screenshot of the CGI basketball court featured in Death Grips’ recent video for “Inanimate Sensation” back in August, even though the video itself wasn’t released until last week. The account also contains an image of an e-mail supposedly from the inbox of firstname.lastname@example.org, though that can be easily faked. They also tweeted “everyone thinks we broke up but we didnt” in September.
The supposed tour would seemingly match up with jenny death, which doesn’t have an official release date yet but seems to be on its way soon via Harvest Records. But it could also be all made up: It wouldn’t be out-of-character for a band known for being professional trolls who have a fanbase with a significant contingent of widely-known trolls to fake something like this and make it seem convincing. And, hey, even if it is real, chances are they’ll just cancel all of their shows anyway.
But let’s speculate for fun: do you think it’s possible that they’re “getting back together”?
