Death Grips surprise Sony with unauthorised LP release

Releases

Death Grips

Death Grips yesterday seized the initiative re the release of their new LP ‘No Deep Love Web’, opting to share it with fans in its entirety. In fact, the band’s specific intent was that “everyone” be able to hear and download it for free for the first time at the same time, including their unsuspecting label, Sony Music.

There have been disputes with the label over release schedules, see. “The label wouldn’t confirm a release date for ‘No Love Deep Web’ till next year sometime'”, tweeted Death Grips prior to supplying download links, adding: “The label will be hearing the album for the first time with you”.

‘No Love Deep Web’ was initially meant to be released in late October. But with delays seemingly likely, and the band’s frustrations over said delays, we can all listen to it right now via Soundcloud, and wonder at the mysterious censored artwork in this Soundcloud player.

The uncensored artwork was available for a time, with an alternative download of the album, via the band’s own website thirdworlds.net, though that mysteriously went down overnight. The folks at Sony, apparently, say that wasn’t because of them.
