Rap-rock crew Death Grips gave away their next album, NO LOVE DEEP WEB, on their website today before they ever delivered it to their label, Epic/Columbia. According to the band’s Twitter, the label wouldn’t confirm a release date until sometime next year, so they will “be hearing the album for the first time with you.” It’s a bold move, especially since the album artwork is a photo of someone in the band’s erect penis with the title drawn on it with black marker. If you really insist on seeing it, you can check out the cover on Pitchfork.
Also, here’s the video for “I’ve Seen Footage,” the single from the band’s album The Money Store, which came out earlier this year. It’s a great workout jam, FYI.
