Taking place on May 13th at Las Vegas Festival Grounds, the appearance will be the experimental hip-hop group’s first performance since before the pandemic, when Death Grips toured in support of their last studio album, 2018’s Year of the Snitch.
Headlined by System of a Down, Deftones, Korn, and Incubus, Sick New World is packed with some of the biggest nu-metal, hard rock, and industrial bands of the ’90s and early 2000s. Other notable acts include Evanescence, Turnstile, Papa Roach, a reunited Flyleaf with original singer Lacey Sturm, Ministry, Melvins, and many more.
Sign up at the Sick New World website for a pre-sale beginning on Friday, November 11th at 10:00 a.m. PT. Public on-sale will begin at 2:00 p.m. PT on the same day.
Since dropping Year of the Snitch, Death Grips have shared a 2019 mix called Gmail and the Restraining Orders in celebration of Warp Records’ 30th anniversary. Last year, drummer Zach Hill remixed Danny Elfman’s “Kick Me” and also started a new band called Undo K from Hot, which released their debut album, G.A.S. Get a Star.
In May of this year, Death Grips hinted at their return by sharing a brief video clip on social media. They followed up in July by bringing their 2011 EP Live from Death Valley to streaming services.
