Death Grips Return To Australia In August

Experimental hip-hop group Death Grips are returning to Australia this August, marking their first Australian shows since 2013 and the release of their fifth full-length album Bottomless Pit.

The group will be bringing the swag at the Metro Theatre in Sydney before giving life to the stage of Max Watt's in Brisbane. The hip-hoppers will end their East Coast tour in Melbourne with a show at The Prince Of Wales Bandroom.

"Zach Hill, Andy Morin and Stefan Burnett (otherwise known as MC Ride) are easily the most talented, impactful culture jammers of the streaming age." - Pitchfork

"Bottomless pit finds ride, producer Flatlander and drummer Zach Hill in their most cohesive and incendiary form." - Consequence of Sound

"For all the hype surrounding Death Grips and the artifice they build around themselves, it’s undeniable that they are worthy of the adoration they receive. Six years in, Death Grips have become essential listening." - London In Stereo

Originating in Sacramento, California, Death Grips released their first mixtape Exmilitary for free in 2011. After gaining high marks from music critics such as Pitchfork, NME and Rolling Stone, hit single ‘Guillotine’ went on to become Time Out NY’s number one single of 2011.

The band continued riding on success and collecting new fans with their debut LP The Money Store in 2012, No Love Deep Web that same year and Government Plates in 2013. Tracks such as ‘Get Got’, ‘I’ve Seen Footage’ and ‘No Love’ all cemented their position as one of the most intense and progressive, experimental hip-hop bands around.

The band went through a rebirth in 2015 with the release of their double-LP The Powers That B. They returned anew last year with Bottomless Pit. Praised by critics as their best work yet, the band continues to tear up limits, refusing to conform to a specific sound. They recently released new track ‘Steroids (Crouching Tiger Hidden Gabber Megamix)’ and have announced that they’re working on a new album.
