In early August, the massive love for Death Grips took a hit when the group failed to show up for their scheduled performance at Lollapalooza. Fans trashed the stage and damaged equipment, including a drum kit. Still the experimental hip-hop trio (Stefan Burnett, Zach Hill and Andy Morin) said nothing — until last night, when they surprise released a new track, "Birds," on their Facebook.
The latest song, possibly a taste of their highly anticipated 2014 album, features nursery rhyme-ish lyrics wth a nightmarish twist set against dirty guitar licks, heavy synths, and Hill's signature drumming.
"One bird, two bird, three birds, four/ Five birds, six times life is war/ One bird, two birds, three birds, four/ Fuck you think I fuck this for/ Fuck you," Burnett raps over the grimy, psychedelic track.
Death Grips were dropped by their major label, Epic, in late 2012.
