Having already taken the prize for the least likely major label signing of the year, Death Grips have made the first of two albums they’ll be releasing through Sony/Columbia this year available to stream for free. As previously reported, ‘The Money Store’ is due for release on 23 Apr.
Speaking about signing to Sony Music, drummer Zach Hill told SPIN: “I’ve been playing music a long time and so I’m very familiar with, ‘Don’t believe anything until it’s actually happening’. We just went down there and we took it with a grain… like we showed up laughing. Not in a pretentious way, but just having no expectations. Stefon [Burnett aka MC Ride] went straight into the bathroom and literally just ripped it, like graffiti, like tore into the stalls, carving DEATH GRIPS all over the stalls of the brand new Sony offices. That was before we even got in the spot”.
