Death Grips’ forthcomingYear of the Snitch has been given to us in bits and scraps, with news of collaborations with Tool bassist Justin Chancellor and Shrek director Andrew Adamson preceding a look at the gross cover art. Earlier this month, the rap-metal outfit shared the album’s lead single, “Streaky”, which was then followed by the sludgy “Black Paint”. Now, the band’s dropped a third single, the hyperkinetic “Flies”.
True to its name, the song evokes a swarm of winged creatures, its spastic beat underscoring whirring synths, colorful drones, and MC Ride’s trademark bark. Check out its crazy, headache-inducing video below.
Death Grips’ follow-up to 2016’s Bottomless Pit doesn’t have a release date just yet, but, knowing them, it’ll probably drop when we least expect it. Stay on your toes.
