The ever-controversial Death Grips are hard at work on a new album, according to an official statement, while drummer Zach Hill is busy writing and directing a feature film that will be soundtracked by the band.
The experimental hip-hop outfit shared the statement via Pitchfork, saying:
Zach is currently writing, directing and soundtracking an original feature film. 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. 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.
If the Death Grips videos are anything to go by – like this one for Lock Up Your Doors (No Hands 6) – Hill’s feature film will be a complete visual mindfuck. We can’t wait.
The new record definitely won’t be put out by previous label Epic Records – the company dropped Death Grips like a sack of hot potatoes after they posted their album No Love Deep Web on their official Facebook for free download, in direct contrast to the label’s plans to, well, charge money for it.
