Death Grips have been producing some pretty different, dark and seriously fucking heavy music, and feature Zach Hill of Hella. This is probably not to everyones taste, but check out the clip below.
Press release and dates to follow:
DEATH GRIPS - California's darkest avant-garde Hip Hop collective invade Australia this January. Hailing from California’s capital City, Sacramento, Death Grips are a dark and intense experimental trio that bring to Hip Hop what Black Flag brought to hardcore, and that being unadulterated attitude and raw power.
Exploding into mass international consciousness on March 8th, 2011 with their video Full Moon, it wasn’t till April 25th when fans were fully exposed to sheer hostility and darkness of Death Grips, a date which marked the release of their free downloadable mix tape album entitled Ex-Military.
Death Grips are one of the hardest, darkest, and most uncompromising Hip Hop bands around; their live shows evoke nothing short of pure energy and intense emotion, which have earned them some well deserved international critical acclaim. In January Death Grips will be touring Australia nationally for the first time, with their first show being at Hobart prestigious arts festival Mona Foma. You’ve been warned.
