Death Grips defy their label with free album release - listen
Californian trio allegedly let fans hear the album the same time as Epic/Columbia Records
Death Grips have released their new album 'NO LOVE DEEP WEB' as a free download.
The Californian trio, who signed to a major label earlier this year, had teased fans of the new record's release all day on Twitter yesterday (September 30), and told them they would be hearing the new album at the same time as their label Epic/Columbia.
They wrote: "The label wouldn't confirm a release date for NO LOVE DEEP WEB 'till next year sometime," followed by:

You can download the album from their Third Worlds site, but, be warned, the site contains the NSFW cover art of an erect penis with the album title written on it. You can also stream the record on Soundcloud below.
Earlier this year, Death Grips pulled their live shows over the summer in order to focus their attention into writing and recording 'NO LOVE…'. The Sacramento based industrial rap trio cancelled a number of festival appearances including London's I'll Be Your Mirror and Field Day.
The tracklisting for 'NO LOVE DEEP WEB' is as follows:
'Come And Get Me'
'World Of Dogs'
'Lock Your Doors'
