Death Grips have announced that they have set up their own record label Thirdworlds.

Last year, the band became embroiled in a public spat with their former label Epic Records after they self-leaked their album 'No Love, Deep Web' online before its release. The group were eventually dropped in November (2012).

As Pitchfork reports, the band will put out a new album on Thirdworlds, which according to a statement is "the band's own label imprint created via a very unique relationship with Harvest /Capitol to be distributed by Caroline", meaning that they've not left major labels behind them as both labels are part of Universal Music Group. The band have also confirmed that they have retained the rights to 'No Love Deep Web' and that its follow-up will be released in 2014.

It was reported that the band's row with Sony imprint Epic 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'. Drummer Zach 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".

As well as working on a new album, Hill is also writing and directing a film which will be soundtracked by the band.
