After already releasing two albums in 2012, Death Grips are already in the works of another album. Zach Hill, who did not tour with Death Grips in order to finish his own film, has been working on recording the new Death Grips album during the entire tour. It is unclear how progressed the album is, but it isn't Zach Hill's number one priority with his new film in the works. The film's music will all be new Death Grip's songs, but the film will have no relation with the group.
When asked about Zach's involvement in the group, the band had this to say:
"Zach is currently writing, directing and soundtracking an original feature film. The movie is of his own creation, fictionally based and not related to the group. The film will be soundtracked with all new Death Grips music. He is also working on and recording the new Death Grips album at the moment. Death Grips is Stefan. Zach. Andy. Zach is very much still in Death Grips."
