Death Grips have posted cryptic videos online.

The US hip-hop duo have uploaded five clips, titled 'No Hands', on YouTube. Each mysterious snippet includes what could be new music and home video footage. The letters 'D X DG' also appear at end of the clips. You can watch all five videos by scrolling down the page and clicking 'play'.

Death Grips sparked headlines last year following a prolonged row with Epic Records. They were dropped from the label in November after they made their second album available for free download and the leak was presented along with a deliberately controversial album sleeve: the album title scribbled on an erect penis.

The rift further deepened when the band published a purportedly official email from the label asking them to remove their self-leaked version of the album from the internet. Hill subsequently revealed that they had intentionally tried to get themselves out of their deal with Epic Records. "A lot of things have to be determined that aren't that interesting – figuring out how we're going to [move forward]," he said. "And whether we're going to do that ourselves, or who's going to do that with us, based on our actions of purposefully trying to get out of the record deal we're exiting right now."

It was reported that the disagreement had stemmed due to a dispute about the scheduled release date of the new album, with the label preferring that the band continue to promote preceding LP 'The Money Store'. Hill explained that they cancelled tour dates to complete 'No Love, Deep Web' instead as it was "way more in tune with what we were experiencing as people in life".
