Death Grips say they purposefully tried to get out of their deal with Epic Records. Speaking to Pitchfork Weekly, the band discussed what exactly happened with the label and the run up to the falling out:

“A lot of things have to be determined that aren’t that interesting– figuring out how we’re going to [move forward]. And whether we’re going to do that ourselves, or who’s going to do that with us, based on our actions of purposefully trying to get out of the record deal we’re exiting right now.”
