Death Grips have revealed that they are working on a new album.

As Pitchfork reports, the US hip-hop group released a statement confirming that in addition to working on a follow-up to their most recent album 'No Love, Deep Web', drummer Zach Hill was also writing and directing a film which will be soundtracked by the band.

"Zach is currently writing, directing and soundtracking an original feature film," they said. "The movie is of his own creation, fictionally based and not related to the group. The film will be soundtracked with all new Death Grips music."

They added: "He is also working on and recording the new Death Grips album at the moment. Death Grips is Stefan. Zach. Andy. Zach is very much still in Death Grips."

Death Grips found themselves embroiled in a spat with their label Epic Records last year after they self-leaked 'No Love, Deep Web' online before its release. The leak was also presented along with a deliberately controversial album sleeve - the album title scribbled on an erect penis - and the group were eventually dropped from the label in November (2012).

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".
