Here’s The Cool Cover Of Death Grips’ Government Plates Record Store Day Vinyl
Death Grips may have broken up, but they still have a few things coming out: there’s Jenny Death — the second half of the double album The Powers That B — which still doesn’t have a release date yet, and there’s a vinyl edition of the group’s 2013 album Government Plates, which is coming out as a part of Record Store Day’s Black Friday event. The artwork for the new Government Plates reissue has been unveiled via Reddit — it features the original artwork covered up by some 3-D renderings of items like a pill bottle and a grenade.
One Redditor is speculating that the cover may contain a clue about the release date of Jenny Death: the pill bottle on the front cover contains the date “7/20/15″ and is the same pill bottle that appears in the group’s video for “Anne Bony.” That date’s a long way off from the promise in their breakup note that it would be out before the end of the year, but anything is possible. That date also appears in the aforementioned video, however, so it really could mean anything (or nothing at all).
