Death Grips Share Instrumental And Vocal Tracks From Their Last Two Albums

Death Grips had an insane year in 2013 (which you can read about in our Year In Death Grips feature), one that gave the impression they'd finally worked through a lot of their problems with label, culminating in the powerful new release and Mixtape Of The Week, Government Plates. Looks like 2014 i… More »

Death Grips At Work On New Album

Zach Hill has announced on Facebook that Death Grips will begin work on the followup to last year's Government Plates. That album seemed transitional and a loose idea of something more to come, so it seems possible the next release will be the true Third Worlds debut that they spoke about in the… More »

The Year In Death Grips

Even with all of the dick pics and album leaks and label disputes of 2012, Death Grips never had a more tumultuous year than they did in 2013. It was the year they reached new heights of exposure, after the climb in 2012, and found it not to their liking. This was a year of… More »

Stereogum’s 50 Favorite Songs Of 2013

Determining the year's best albums is, admittedly, a subjective pursuit. But even more than an albums roundup, a list of songs is an intensely personal way to sum up a year in music. It is a process of appreciating the trees in a forest so sprawling it can never be mapped out entirely, celebrating… More »

Mixtape Of The Week: Death Grips Government Plates

Last week Death Grips dropped a new album out of nowhere -- a really good new album -- but considering it's a spontaneous digital, free release, we decided it fit better in MOTW than AOTW (plus we wanted to give Blood Orange's awesome new album some love). But let's just get straight into it,… More »

The 5 Best Songs Of The Week

The Week That Was had already delivered to us a pretty impressive number of worthy songs for inclusion in this list, and then, outta nowhere, Death Grips dropped a whole new album, giving us 10 more songs to sort through for this feature (Government Plates goes 11 tracks deep, but the previously released "More »

Download Death Grips Government Plates

Even if you hate Death Grips, you gotta love Death Grips. For all the bullshit, they keep you on your toes. What now? Outta the blue, totally unannounced, the band just dropped a whole new album, Government Plates -- featuring the already released track "Birds" -- and you can stream the whole thing… More »

Death Grips Cancel Fun Fun Fun Fest

UPDATE: Death Grips' reps tell us there was no tour, just two festival dates. // You're not going to believe this, but Death Grips will not be showing up to their scheduled dates this fall. At least they're letting people know in advance this time. More »

Death Grips’ NO LOVE DEEP WEB Gets Vinyl Release

Would you guys have imagined that more than half-way through 2013, last year's NO LOVE DEEP WEB fracas -- performance art oddities, aside -- would resurface? Yesterday, there were reports on a Reddit thread that vinyl copies of the album, which the band famously released online for free against the behest… More »

Hear British TV Choirmaster Cover Death Grips

Gareth Malone, a British choirmaster and star of the reality TV series The Choir, will release Voices this year and it includes an ecclesiastical cover of Death Grips' "Guillotine." This is not a test, people. We are not being trolled, this is totally real, and Malone has unveiled the cascading cover as a preview… More »

Death Grips – “Birds”

People get mad about Death Grips because they're frankly pretty unreliable and disrespectful, but people talk about Death Grips because they make fucking awesome music. (I'd argue that No Death Grips = No Yeezus, tbh.) The band is reportedly working on a 2014 LP for their own (major label-affiliated) Thirdworlds imprint, but… More »

Deconstructing: Death Grips’ No-Show Live Show And What We Expect From Concerts

When Death Grips "chose not to arrive in Chicago" for their scheduled set at Lollapalooza 2013, it led to outrage in comments sections, on Twitter, and in real life: Patrons at Chicago's Bottom Lounge got violent when it became clear the band wouldn't be performing at the official Lollapalooza after-show party… More »

Death Grips “Chose Not To Arrive” At Lollapalooza, Fans Destroy Their Equipment

Death Grips have bailed on Lollapalooza 2013. Last night, the band never showed up to the official aftershow they were set to play at Chicago's Bottom Lounge. When the band never played, fans apparently destroyed all of Death Grips' equipment, according to what a bunch of folks have posted on Reddit and Twitter. Amongst the… More »

Death Grips Launch Thirdworlds Label, Prep New LP

Death Grips had a hell of a chaotic 2012: Two much-loved albums, a big tour cancellation, and an unlikely stint on Epic Records that came to an end when they leaked the second of those two albums, the dick-pic-adorned No Love Deep Web. As it turns out, though, the band isn't entirely done… More »

Sasquatch! 2013 Monday: The Postal Service, Ariel Pink, Death Grips, & More

If there was one constant during the Monday at Sasquatch! it might as well have been "failure." The rainy final day, riddled with many sound problems, cancellations, and absences, brought that word to mind in some context with nearly every set. Yet, in spite of this, band after band delivered their all and by the… More »

The Prodigy – “Firestarter (Death Grips Remix)”

It's nice when groups connect the aesthetic dots for us. This afternoon, noise-rap troublemakers Death Grips posted a hectic, disorienting remix of "Firestarter," the feral techno-rock song that was a massive hit for rave popularizers the Prodigy in 1996. And now that I think about it, the Keith Flint mouth-foaming and Liam Howlett steamroller… More »

Death Grips – “Lock Your Doors” Video

Last week, noise-rap shit-starters played a reportedly-anarchic SXSW set that none of your Stereogum correspondents managed to see because the line to get in was too goddam long. From all accounts, though, it was nuts. And the group's members made some recordings by wearing cameras over their faces, and they used that footage to make… More »

Watch Fred Armisen Talk Death Grips On Rachael Ray

Apparently, celebrity chef Rachael Ray has a thing she does on her talk show where she gives her guests 60 seconds to talk about whatever they want. And in his recent appearance on the show, Fred Armisen used most of his allotted time to talk about Death Grips -- or, more specifically, about former Hella… More »
