"We've decided to make a new Death Grips album and it will be called Bottomless Pit," Death Grips cryptically revealed, as per usual, on their Facebook page Wednesday evening. Founding members Stefan Burnett (better known as MC Ride), Andy Morin, and Zach Hill have previously grabbed headlines for their frantic, nearly career-ruining antics; rubbing shoulders with Robert Pattinson & Beyoncé, appearing "in a minute" on Rachael Ray thanks to comedian Fred Armisen, releasing one album under Epic Records executive L.A. Reid's hit-making reign, leaking a set of private emails and ultimately a d*ck-pic-boasting album cover, cancelling a string of dates in support of NIN & Soundgarden, suddenly breaking up via a note scrawled across a dinner napkin, only to "reunite" for a 2-disc album just a few months later, and if you ask me, inadvertently inspired Kanye West's Aggro-Rap magnum opus Yeezus. Death Grips are for all intensive purposes, to any effect, the modern day embodiment of the age-old Hollywood cliché for erratic behavior, "any press is good press."
"Iconic 70's film star Karen Black passed away in August 2013. 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," Death Grips passionately wrote accompanying their 14-minute Bottomless Pit quasi-album trailer. It's unclear as to whether or not the "film [Zach Hill] was developing" was in fact Death Grips' rumored, seemingly fabricated, and ultimately cancelled Robert Pattinson & Colin Hanks-starring 2013 short film titled Misoneism. While Bottomless Pit still seems to be in the early stages of development, it will most likely materialize out of the blue during the wee hours of the morning when we least expect it; but in any case, Bottomless Pit will be the unofficial follow-up to Zach Hill-frotned Death Grips side project The I.L.Y.'s Noise/Indie Rock-leaning I've always been good at true love.
