Published Sep 13, 2013Well, the person who recently picked up the mysterious vinyl pressing of Death Grips' once digital-only album No Love Deep Web for $565.55 on eBay isn't going to like this one bit: the band have now set the record with a November 19 commercial street date.
As previously reported, a vinyl edition of the set popped up recently, with many suspecting that the label-less release, pressed under a Creative Commons licence, was a bootleg. This week, a representative for the project confirmed that it was indeed legit.
Now, listings on Amazon for CD and LP editions of No Love Deep Web point to an official release this fall. Interestingly, the label issuing the releases is cited as Harvest, not the troupe's own Third Worlds, but a representative confirmed to Pitchfork that the release will be widely distributed.
The LP listing shows a black sleeve with a sticker noting, "Warning: Contains graphic imagery which may be offensive to some people," suggesting that the meaty, jiffy-markered mile-marker we've all come to know and love will still be at attention on the album cover proper.
