Death Grips Call It Quits; Read Their Handwritten Facebook Farewell

Death Grips Over

Though Death Grips released the Björk-featuring first half of their fall double LP The Powers That B just last month, it appears that the noise-rap provocateurs have called it quits. In a surprise note posted to their Facebook page, the group claimed that they were “over” because “[they] are now at [their] best.” They’ll still release The Powers That B later this year through Harvest/Third Worlds Records, but all upcoming tour dates, including a string opening for alt-rock legends Nine Inch Nails and Soundgarden, have been cancelled. After a career of unannounced releases and middle fingers to the established music industry, it’s only fitting that their end comes in a manner that’s just as unexpected. Read the band’s full note below, in which they claim that they were always “above and beyond a ‘band’” anyway.

“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.”
