Having released their debut album proper, ‘The Money Store’, in April, hip hop unit Death Grips have detailed the second LP to arise from their strange but true Sony/Columbia signing. It’ll “most likely” be out in late October, and will bear the title ‘NO LOVE DEEP WEB’.

The band say in a statement to Pitchfork that they’ve prepared 20 tracks to be cut to about thirteen, and have been recording primarily in California over the past five months. Adding that the LP will feature nothing in the way of guest features or “outside producers”, but hinting at a “video collaboration” with eccentric actor/director Crispin Glover, they characterise its sound as: “Cold, bass heavy, minimal, rock n roll influenced and could simultaneously fit into a rave or dance club context. It is essentially rap and electronic music while at times extremely aggressive”.

Having cancelled their entire summer tour to complete said LP, the band add that they’ll promote it “live internationally”, which presumably means they’ll be detailing new dates soon.
