Future-primitive art-rap provocateurs Death Grips are possibly the most mysterious and provocative force on the popular music landscape today. A throat-grabbing head-on of rap and industrial noise, their music alone is undeniable. But once you factor in their striking, conspiratorial style, you’ve got a bona fide shock to the system. Between undermining their major label by leaking their album online and booking high-profile gigs that they never actually planned on playing (Lollapalooza), their wild reputation for operating on their own shadowy terms has mapped the thin, evasive line between shenanigans and full-on aggression. Their last big grenade was famously bailing on a major tour with Nine Inch Nails last year by suddenly disbanding. Luckily, that stunt didn’t stick and they returned to active tour duty this year to bring us what should be the most hotly anticipated concert this year. You know, so long as it happens.
