New music is coming from Death Grips, the heavy hitting punk/rap/new school act that hit the national scene this year with the album The Money Store and the song "Double Helix." now they'll double down with the next new album No Love Deep Web on this Fall on Epic Records, PLUS release music via the Adult Swim singles series on the release date of Sept. 10, the song is from The Money Store sessions and not new material. But hey, NEW DEATH GRIPS! In a band-issued statement, they offered these words:
"we are working on 20 tracks and looking to narrow down to 13.
it will be released by epic records in the us and columbia in the uk.
the release is scheduled for fall 2012. most likely late october.
we are in correspondence with Crispin Glover and working toward a video collaboration with him relating to this album.
we've been recording the album primarily in sacramento , ca. and oakland , ca. for the past five months. we will be mixing it in shanghai , china."
The statement went on to say that none of the beats will be manually programmed, so I'm not sure if that means live beats via electronic devices or a full-on drum set (both?), they also offered that no guest spots will happen, which means we will all be in the grips of Death Groups for the entire new album. They also offered that the music is "cold , bass heavy , minimal , rock & roll influenced and could simultaneously fit into a rave or dance club context" so we can all look forward to some wide-ranging sounds.
