Death Grips @ Brooklyn Masonic Temple – SOLD OUT
“Like a searing art-rap road-rash, Death Grips masterfully combine bellowing slow-flow rhymes, screechy samples, and lunatic genius going buck fuckin’ wild.”
Experimental rap-noise group Death Grips formed during late 2010 in Sacramento, California. The band soon dropped the highly acclaimed mix tape Exmilitary featuring the standout track “Guillotine”, Time Out NY’s #1 single of 2011. From inception, the band has received unparalleled critical praise from tastemakers such as Pitchfork, NME, Spin, Rolling Stone, The New Yorker, and more, while being featured on countless “best of” lists.
In 2012, Death Grips followed up Exmilitary with their full length debut, The Money Store. The album builds on Exmilitary’s unique punk rap sound and explores new territory with standout tracks “Get Got”, “Blackjack”, and “I’ve Seen Footage”. The album quickly solidified the band’s position as one of the most intense and visceral bands around. Death Grips was named the most legally downloaded band on the internet for the first half of 2012, racking up an impressive 34 million downloads on BitTorrent.
Delivering on the promise of putting out 2 albums in 2012, Death Grips dropped No Love Deep Web in October for free online. The album was streamed over 100,000 times in the 24 hours following its release. The sonically intense music, coupled with provocative album art was received with unprecedented critical and commercial attention.
Following the release of No Love Deep Web, the band has been on the road playing sold out shows in the United States, Europe, Australia and Asia including landmark performances at Coachella and Big Day Out. Death Grips will continue to tour the world throughout 2013.
“Onstage, as in their noise/rap amalgam, they are flawless, striated vessels of an angst and aggression that is both primal and post-technological…Death Grips are perfect.”
