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 between band and label suddenly seems way more fraught. On Twitter, the band wrote that Epic wouldn’t confirm the release of new album NO LOVE DEEP WEB until next year, so the band claimed that they’d let everyone hear it at the same time as they delivered it to their label. And late last night, they posted the LP for free download on Twitter. They also unveiled the cover art, which is the album’s title written on a boner. It’s obviously super-NSFW, but it’s below, as is a stream of the album. Download it here.
If a band is ever again worried that they’ll never escape label purgatory, allow me to suggest this course of action.
