Death Grips to soundtrack original Zach Hill film; breaking things to receive its most comprehensive guide since the 1970s

Stopping just short of causing permanent blindness, the collective overdose of adrenaline that crowds in Europe are currently experiencing as a result of the Death Grips tour hasn’t been enough to stop people from noticing the absence of Zach Hill. After all, during those lapses in time when MC Ride isn’t implicitly motivating you to punch babies in a rage or sort of, kind of, making you fear for your own safety, the inclination is to look in the direction of the trio’s superlatively skilled drummer.

Case in point: here’s a statement released last Friday explaining Hill’s whereabouts and preoccupations, now that certain corners of the music world have begun to ask questions. Via Pitchfork:

Zach is currently writing, directing and soundtracking an original feature film. The movie is of his own creation, fictionally based and not related to the group. The film will be soundtracked with all new Death Grips music. He is also working on and recording the new Death Grips album at the moment. Death Grips is Stefan. Zach. Andy. Zach is very much still in Death Grips.

Points for concision, but for the sake of getting you all riled up: Zach Hill is off working on an original feature-length film, which will be soundtracked by all new Death Grips material, and in addition to that, a new Death Grips LP is in the works. Given Hill’s concurrent interest in the visual arts, it’s not surprising he’s working on a feature-length film, but there remains a curiosity about the film’s content. People throwing stuff? People setting things on fire? Yelling? Explosions? Think of the destructive possibilities…
