Death Grips are back (again)

Their new album is called ‘Bottomless Pit’.

Kings of constantly splitting up and reforming, Death Grips, are back again, and they’ve announced their new album ‘Bottomless Pit’

“We’ve decided to make a new Death Grips album and it will be called Bottomless Pit,” said the band in a to-the-point post on their Facebook page. They didn’t confirm a release date for the new record.

Along with the album news, Death Grips also shared a video featuring the late actress and singer Karen Black, who starred in the 1974 adaptation of The Great Gatsby, Easy Rider, and Nashville. The dialogue is written by the band’s Zach Hill. He was introduced to the actress two years ago, and wrote the part with her in mind for a film he was working on. “”Iconic 70’s film star Karen Black passed away in August 2013,” reads the video’s description. “In February of that year, Karyn Rachtman introduced Ms. Black to Zach Hill. The two immediately hit it off. Zach had written a part for Karen for a film he was developing and gave her the pages for her scenes. Though she didn’t know how the scenes would fit into the final film, she readily agreed to read her character’s dialog on camera for Zach.”
