Death Grips is the debut extended play by experimental hip hop group Death Grips. It was released as a free download on March 8, 2011 through the band's website. While the release is considered to be an EP by fans, Death Grips was released as a ZIP file with no track listing.

Background[edit]

After forming on December 21, 2010, in Sacramento, California, Death Grips recorded their first track, "Full Moon (Death Classic)".[1] On March 8, 2011, Death Grips released the song, along with a video and a free self-titled EP. The EP consists of 6 tracks, several of which were later renamed and released on their debut mixtape, Exmilitary.[2][3] Some websites mention the Exmilitary track "Blood Creepin (Grave Grips)" as being included, however, most remaining downloads and sources do not include the track.[4]

Following the release of Exmilitary on April 25, 2011, the EP was removed from the band's website. However, "Full Moon (Death Classic)" and "Face Melter (How To Do Impossible Things)" remained available for free for a short time. On April 27, 2011, "Full Moon (Death Classic)" was released as a single through iTunes.
