After first trolling the world by not showing up when they said they would, Death Grips are now trolling us by showing up when they said they wouldn’t. Which is to say that they announced their breakup on a napkin last July, and now, nine months and 18 Stereogum posts later, not only do they have a new album out, they just announced the first of the world tour dates they’ve been teasing and teasing. The band announced the North American leg of the tour via Facebook and Twitter just now. More to come…

And, oh yeah, they hinted in a previous Facebook post that they might record some more new music. It seems we can crumple up that napkin now.
