Death Grips
, the Sacramento noise-punk-hip-hop crew that's elevated the act of trolling one's own fan base to an art form, have announced a world tour, which runs fairly contrary to the group's decision last July to "break up." 

The announcement follows the online release of Jenny Death, the long-awaited second half of their "final album," the powers that b — check out the new songs below via the group's YouTube channel. Supposedly the full record will officially be released into the world on March 31Why are we couching this is such hesitant language? The guys have a habit of, well, changing their minds and canceling or dropping out of things and/or just not showing up, so this seems a little too good to be true.

If it's not? See you at The Fillmore on July 25. Tickets go on sale this Friday.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
