According to Pitchfork‘s article, Death Grips member Zach Hill suggests that their website thirdworlds.net was shut down by Epic. The article also added (as an update) that the label denies that they were behind the site takedown.
Regardless of who did what, the album is receiving tremendous attention, with the first song at over 57k plays on Soundloud, not even 24 hours after being posted. Later in the day Pitchfork released another article titling ‘Deep Web’ as a ‘Best New Track’, as well as hitting number one on Bit Torrent’s most legally downloaded music for the first half of 2012.

Sacrementan noise-hop group, Death Grips, eases away from the drug induced/apocalyptic vibes of their previous works and into something one might identify as having a more fitness-induced feel to it, though still apocalyptic, of course. Lookout for their forthcoming LP, The Money Store, due out on the 24th of April via Epic.
