Death Grips Announce New Album

Death Grips Announce New Album

"We've decided to make a new album and it will be called Bottomless Pit."

Just over a year after annoucing their break-up, experimental hip hop shit-stirrers Death Grips have announced a new album, Bottomless Pit (this comes after their "final album", The Powers That B, which cryptically ended on a track called 'Death Grips 2.0').

The announcement is shrouded in weirdness, which is typical for Death Grips, who have continually used their social media to confuse/challenge their fans, where other artists would use it to connect. Last night they took to their Facebook to upload a 15 minute long video of late ’70s film star Karen Black reading dialogue that Death Grips' drummer Zach Hill wrote for her (including lines like "I will f--k your mind and steal your babies") prior to her passing away in 2013. The video was accompanied by the announcement of Bottomless Pit. They've shared no other details about the album release date, but did give us background on the video, which was shot in Black's home:

Iconic 70’s film star Karen Black passed away in August 2013. In February of that year, Karyn Rachtman introduced Ms. Black to Zach Hill. The two immediately hit it off. Zach had written a part for Karen for a film he was developing and gave her the pages for her scenes. Though she didn’t know how the scenes would fit into the final film, she readily agreed to read her character’s dialog on camera for Zach.

No doubt the video is some kind of cryptic hint as to whats to come. We're intrigued - sign us up!
