Death Grips have pulled all their scheduled live shows over the summer, including appearances at London's I’ll Be Your Mirror and Field Day festivals.

The Sacramento based industrial rap trio have cancelled all their forthcoming shows in order to focus on finishing their next album, 'No Love'. Writing on their Twitter account - Twitter.com/deathgripz, the band said: "we are dropping out to complete our next album NO LOVE. see you when it's done.(there are no longer any scheduled shows)".

Affected UK shows include:

Glasgow Stag & Dagger (May 19)
Manchester Warehouse (20)
Nottingham Bodega (21)
Norwich Arts Centre (22)
Brighton Green Door Store (23)
London I'll Be Your Mirror (25)

Death Grips, who have just released their major label debut, 'The Money Store', were recently heralded by Bjork, who said to the Guardian that she admired their "Intense rapping, lyrics and lush beats. It's all good… Mostly I don't listen to experimental rap but in between there are gems, the same with all music genres."

Death Grips recently remixed 'Thunderbolt' and 'Sacrifice' from Bjork's 'Biophilia' project.
