Death Grips have started recording their new album.
According to Zach Hill of the band, they have just started on the follow-up to 2013’s ‘Government Plates’. Writing on his Facebook page, Hill also said that the band ‘hope’ to tour this summer. He wrote: “starting to record the new Death Grips album right now. hope to tour alot this summer.” He added that he was “Still writing a film and would like to make a new Hella album sooner than later…”. Hill is also a member of longrunning rock band Hella.
The band announced the release of their last album on November 13, 2013, offering free links to download the LP.
In 2012, 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 later that year. In July of 2013 they announced that they had set up their own record label, Thirdworlds.
‘Government Plates’ followed 2011’s ‘The Money Store’ and ‘No Love, Deep Web’ as well as 2011’s ‘Exmilitary’ mixtape.
