Death Grips are planning to launch new imprint Thirdworlds with assistance from Harvest and Capitol.
Death Grips have always had a, shall we say, fraught relationship with the music industry. Initial mixtape 'Ex-Military' was self-released, with the band espousing a rare sense of independence.
Signing to Epic, the partnership resulted in acclaimed debut album 'The Money Store' before things went sour. Cancelling some important summer shows, Death Grips insisted on recording (and then leaking) follow up album 'NO LOVE DEEP WEB' within months of their debut.
Taking time out, the band have only played a few sporadic live shows since. Now Death Grips have broken cover, announcing that they are to launch new imprint Thirdworlds with assistance from Harvest and Capitol.

In related news, Death Grips percussionist Zach Hill is working on a new full length film which will feature a score boasting all-new material from the Sacramento collective.
