Death Grips Releases 32 Minute Instrumental Video

Death Grips have never been the most straightforward musicians on the block, and their recent release "Interview 2016" continues that trend.

The video consists of 32 minutes of grainy footage that toggles between live performances and interviews between the band members and a delightedly confused Matthew Hoffman. Replacing any diegetic sound from the clips is a continuous session of new beats from the group. The sound can best be described as "industrial ragecore," or at least that's the best I can come up with.

It sounds like a Decepticon (probably Megatron) shifting from fighter jet to fighting-robot-alien at hyper-speed, in the best possible way.

Death Grips' new record Bottomless Pit is expected some time this year, but a hard timeline on that release has yet to be set. Earlier this year a new track entitled "Hot Head" was released on the band's YouTube channel, but like today's new music, it came without any announcement or context.

While we still don't know when or what to expect from Death Grips next, it's a comfort to know that they are still out here, dropping flames.
