Death Grips
Death Grips
Hailing from Sacramento, California, Death Grips formed in late 2010 and consists of Stefan “MC Ride” Burnett and Zach Hill. The band dropped the highly acclaimed mix tape Exmilitary featuring the standout track “Guillotine”, Time Out NY’s #1 single of 2011. From inception, the band has received unparalleled critical praise from tastemakers such as Pitchfork, NME, Spin, Rolling Stone, The New Yorker, and more, while being featured on countless best of lists.

In 2012, Death Grips followed up Exmilitary with their Epic Records debut, The Money Store. The album builds on Exmilitary’s unique punk rap sound and explores new territory with standout tracks “Get Got”, “Blackjack”, and “I’ve Seen Footage”. The release was exceptionally well received by critics and fans alike, solidifying their position as one of the most intense and visceral bands around.

Earlier this year, Death Grips brought their sonic intensity to life with several key performances including landmark sets at Coachella 2012. The live setup consists of Burnett on vocals and Hill on drums. The Death Grips are coming to Europe in Fall 2012 before heading to Australia in early 2013.
