Death Grips announce split

US electro hip-hop trio Death Grips have announced their split with immediate effect via a statement on their Facebook page.

Although they have yet to release the second half to this year's double album 'The Powers That B', the band have confirmed that the latter half of the album is still due out as planned, but all other works from the group have been cancelled.

The statement reads, "We are now at our best and so Death Grips is over. we have officially stopped. all currently scheduled live dates are canceled. our upcoming double album "the powers that b" will still be delivered worldwide later this year via Harvest/Third Worlds Records. Death Grips was and always has been a conceptual art exhibition anchored by sound and vision. above and beyond a "band". to our truest fans, please stay legend."

Death Grips released the first half of the album 'Niggas On The Moon' earlier this year as a free download, and featured Bjork as a guest vocalist throughout most of its tracks. The second half, dubbed 'Jenny Death', is expected to arrive later in the year.
