Death Grips have announced that their new album, titled ‘Year Of The Snitch’, is “coming soon”.
The announcement was prematurely leaked on the group’s own page overnight, prompting them to respond via Twitter, writing: “Someone Snitched.” Death Grips’ last record was the surprise-released ‘Bottomless Pit’, back in 2016.
The band are yet to share the artwork or any further details for ‘Year Of The Snitch’ – check back on NME.com for any further information.
Death Grips were last seen on UK shores for Field Day festival 2017. In NME‘s review of the day, we wrote: “Nothing yet has quite prepared Field Day for the arrival of Sacramento noise architects Death Grips, who soundcheck over at the Crack stage with 2011’s ‘Guillotine’ and make everyone go nuts. They leave briefly, to a deadly silence, before returning and blasting out an hour of their trademark brutalist hip-hop.
“Barechested, roaring, and straight in from Primavera Sound in Barcelona, MC Ride is on top form for the band’s first UK show since October. There’s no sign of their recent 22-minute track ‘Steroids (Crouching Tiger Hidden Gabber)’, but timewise that’s probably a good thing: they end on the previously soundchecked ‘Guillotine’, bringing the moshing crowd to a furious boil.”
