The two are a weird match for one another, but [...]

We could have concluded Death Grips weren’t playing Fun Fun Fun Fest even if the organizers hadn’t poked fun at the band’s recent breakup. Now it turns out Death Cab For Cutie — another Death band, albeit one almost entirely on the other side of the musical spectrum — have pulled out too. A press [...]

From Pitchfork: As you’ve probably heard by now, the Sacramento band Death Grips have broken up. Generally speaking, this is no big loss: Good bands break up all the time, and there will never be a shortage of new ones to listen to. Time is unsentimental that way. Show More Summary

Yesterday afternoon, Death Grips announced their breakup by writing about it on a napkin and then posting a scan of that napkin on Facebook.
