Sacramento's Death Grips Posts New Album For Free, Label Shuts Band Website Down
Well, well: Anarchic Sacramento rap outfit Death Grips posted all of its new album, NO LOVE DEEP WEB, online for free this morning -- allegedly before reps for its label, Epic, even had a chance to hear it. Several hours later, the label apparently responded by shutting down the band's website, Pitchfork reports.

Which -- along with this NSFW-and-most-definitely-not-safe-for-marketing-anywhere new cover artwork, really kind of makes us wonder what a group like Death Grips is doing on a major label, anyway.
The label wouldn't confirm a release date for NO LOVE DEEP WEB "till next year sometime"— Death Grips (@DeathGripz) October 1, 2012
For now, though, the band's thirdworlds.net is not up and running. We have inquiries out to band and label representatives now, and will update this post if we get any info.
