Death Grips are working on a film soundtrack alongside a full studio album.
Now operating outside the confines of the label structure, Death Grips are relishing their independence. Performing at ATP over the weekend, the band gave all the signs of being re-energised, with their set having a rare spark, a true sense of purpose.
Performing as a duo, Death Grips made do without percussionist Zach Hill. In a new statement, the band explain that this will be their predominant live set up this summer, and that plans are under way for a film soundtrack project alongside a stand alone album.
"Zach is currently writing, directing and soundtracking an original feature film. The movie is of his own creation, fictionally based and not related to the group. The film will be soundtracked with all new Death Grips music. He is also working on and recording the new Death Grips album at the moment. Death Grips is Stefan. Zach. Andy. Zach is very much still in Death Grips. -Death Grips"
