DIIV release a new single, “Taker”

Taken from their forthcoming third LP, Deceiver, out 4th October 2019 via Captured Tracks

DIIV reveal their new song “Taker” from their forthcoming third full-length album, Deceiver, released on 4th October 2019 via Captured Tracks. A plowing groove and wailing guitar punctuate a lulling apology on the magnetically melancholic track, which follows the recently released lead single “Skin Game”. “Skin Game”’s darkly propulsive sound was praised as “the #1 Best Rock Song Right Now” by The FADER, “rumbling” by Rolling Stone, “hypnotic” by NME, “excellent” by Paste and a “rebirth” by Pitchfork.

Rebirth takes place when everything falls apart. On Deceiver, DIIV craft the soundtrack to personal resurrection under the heavy weight of metallic catharsis, upheld by robust guitars and vocal tension that almost snaps, but never quite. The new album from Zachary Cole Smith (lead vocals, guitar), Andrew Bailey (guitar), Colin Caulfield (vocals, bass) and Ben Newman (drums) was recorded in Los Angeles with producer Sonny Diperri (Protomartyr, Trent Reznor), marking the first time the band has worked with an outside producer. It is preceded by 2012’s Oshin and 2016’s critical and fan favorite Is the Is Are. NMEranked the latter in their Top 10 albums of the year andPitchfork’s audience voted it one of the Top 50 albums of 2016 whilst the outlet dubbed it “gorgeous.”

The band will embark on a North American tour in October and December including Desert Daze Festival and a performance at Warsaw in Brooklyn, NY. More dates, including shows in the UK and Europe, are to be announced. Tickets are on sale here: http://diiv.net
