Death Grips' website shut down after the band leak new album
The rap trio tried to give away 'NO LOVE DEEP WEB' for free to fans
Death Grips' website has been shut down hours after they announced that they would be defying their record label and leaking their new album.
The Californian trio, who signed to major label Epic earlier this year, had teased fans of the new record's release on Twitter yesterday (September 30), and told them they would be hearing the new album at the same time as their label.
The rap group went on to release 'NO LOVE DEEP WEB' as a free download earlier today online, but their site thirdworlds.net has now been shut down, supposedly by their label. The band wrote:
our sight just got shut down- BASIC AS FUCK— Death Grips (@DeathGripz) October 1, 2012
Death Grips previously explained that they had leaked the album because: "The label wouldn't confirm a release date for NO LOVE DEEP WEB 'till next year sometime."
The NSFW album artwork features an erect penis with the album title written on it. At the time of writing, fans can still stream the record via the Soundcloud link below.
'NO LOVE DEEP WEB' follows 'The Money Store', which was released in April of this year, and the 'Exmilitary' mixtape, which came out in 2011.
