Being a grumpy firestarter myself, it is my pelasure to pass on the information about the recent happenings in the world of alternative mainstream music :) Ladies and gentlemen, pushing hip-hop’s boundaries to its creative edges, DEATH GRIPS stirred up the almighty Trent Reznor‘s feelings by breaking up (!) and pissing on the upcoming tour with NINE INCH NAILS and SOUNDGARDEN.
Get their latest album for free, stay tuned for their final full length later this year via Harvest Records and check out the details below.
sorry everyone… why would I have ever thought those dudes could keep it together?

The band has released the following statement:
we are now at our best and so Death Grips is over. we have officially stopped. all currently scheduled live dates are canceled. our upcoming double album “the powers that b” will still be delivered worldwide later this year via Harvest/Third Worlds Records. Death Grips was and always has been a conceptual art exhibition anchored by sound and vision. above and beyond a “band”. to our truest fans, please stay legend.
