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 »

Death Grips – “Come Up And Get Me” Short Film

When they were recording NO LOVE DEEP WEB, the free album that got them kicked off of Epic, punk-rap noisemakers blew through their whole major-label advance by living at the famously fancy Los Angeles hotel Chateau Marmont. And the group's new self-directed short film for the NO LOVE track "Come Up And Get Me"… More »

Death Grips Dropped By Epic

It's starting to look like the honeymoon is over for Death Grips and Epic. After what seemed to be a rock-solid marriage full of unauthorized album leaks and the publication of privileged emails between label and band management, Epic has released a statement revealing that perhaps all was not bliss in Camelot:… More »

Death Grips Leak Angry Emails From Epic

When Death Grips released NO LOVE DEEP WEB allegedly without the consent of their new label, Epic, some of us thought it might be a publicity stunt that was actually pulled off with Epic's approval (if not Epic's idea in the first place). That seems less likely now that the band has shared o… More »

Stereogum’s Top 10 Sets Of CMJ 2012

As we approached last week's CMJ marathon, thought-leading haymakers of all stripes were of a single mind: This year there just wouldn't be much hay to make. There appeared to be no big story to chase, no overarching trend to memorialize, no barometric cluster of bands to hunt, no clearly identifiable narrative to manufacture. And… More »

Death Grips – “True Vulture” Video

You might have heard that Death Grips have a new one out, although considering the band's uncomfortable relationship with traditional promotion (and album cycles), it's only fitting that their new video isn't actually scored by a song from their new record. "True Vulture" is a collaboration between Death Grips and artist Galen Pehrson,… More »

Mixtape Of The Week: Death Grips NO LOVE DEEP WEB

With all the furor about its sudden online leak, it's easy to forget that with NO LOVE DEEP WEB, Death Grips have done something that about a million other rap crews have done: Released an album's worth of material for free online. There's a whole garden industry of that happening nowadays, and it's called mixtapes. More »

Deconstructing: Death Grips’ NO LOVE DEEP WEB: Act Of Rebellion Or Publicity Stunt?

You know the story by now, but in case you don't: On Monday, 10/1, Death Grips gave away their highly anticipated new album, NO LOVE DEEP WEB, ostensibly against the wishes of their label Epic Records. Call it a victory for Internet-freedom cheerleaders. Major-label artists -- Radiohead and Nine Inch Nails, for instance --… More »

Download Death Grips NO LOVE DEEP WEB

When Sacramento punk-rap noisemakers Death Grips signed to Epic and announced plans to drop two albums in a year, it was a deeply unlikely turn of events, one that seemed like it might not turn out well. And though they did release the galvanizing album The Money Store earlier this year, the relationship betwee… More »

Stereogum Monthly Mix: September 2012

Fall has fallen, as they say. As a result this month's mix of ten tracks delivered right on time for September's grand finale has all the classic ingredients of a prosperous autumn: rap, punk, post-punk, R&B, and a Paul Westerberg song. They appear here generally in that order, diligently sequenced to include Weekend Money +… More »

Death Grips – “I’ve Seen Footage” Interactive Video

Sacramento rap thrashers Death Grips already have a video for "I've Seen Footage," but, along with MTV, they've come up with another. Which is more than cool, because it's an interactive wonder, a choose-your-own adventure that lets you engage the story through the perspective of 50 different characters. It's gonna be fun to wander… More »

Death Grips – “@deathgripz”

The Adult Swim Singles Series has been giving away mp3s once a week all summer, and today it ends -- not with a bang, but with a sort of madly blinking rumble-blare. That's right: Death Grips are back! And they've returned with a song named after their Twitter handle, which involves frontman Stefan Burnett experiment… More »

Death Grips – “Double Helix” Video

Note to drivers with onboard rearview cameras in their cars: If Stefan Burnett appears on your screen and you reverse at a reasonably slow speed, he will rap at, hump, and punch your car's backside. It'll be like a private performance! Reverse too fast and you are a homicidal maniac, though. There's no in between. More »
