Oneohtrix Point Never replaces Death Grips on select dates for the Nine Inch Nails-Soundgarden tour

Oneohtrix Point Never, the side project of retired NBA player Chuck Person, has just been announced as one of three replacement acts (the others being Cold Cave and the Dillinger Escape Plan) for Death Grips, who earlier this month called it quits (via a small piece of cloth normally for use in wiping the lips and fingers and to protect the clothes while eating), just days before their scheduled tour with Nine Inch Nail and Soundgarden. The change-ups should be seamless, though, because all music sounds the same. Quoth Lopatin:

Sharing the stage with NIN means a great deal to me, and I’m honored to be replacing Death Grips on this tour. The last amphitheater tour I did was with Sigur Rós, in which audiences had no idea whether or not I was performing because I was behind a giant sheet. I’m happy to say that the setup is going to incredible on this run. Thus, I’m attempting to write 30 minutes of customized hard rock cyberdrone specifically for this tour. I am grateful to Trent Reznor and his production team for all their help.

So there you have it. Special hard rock cyberdrone set! Looks like Mr. Person (a.k.a. Daniel Lopatin) has found his way, after all.
