TOUR THE UK IN FEBRUARY 2020 WITH A LONDON  SHOW AT 02 FORUM KENTISH TOWN ON 27TH FEBRUARY; US TOUR INCLUDING TWO SOLD OUT SHOWS IN LA KICKS OFF THIS WEEK

DIIV’S NEW ALBUM DECEIVER IS OUT NOW VIA CAPTURED TRACKS

DIIV release the video for “Skin Game” from their new album Deceiver, directed by Gilbert Trejo. “Skin Game”’s darkly propulsive sound was praised as “the #1 Best Rock Song Right Now” by The FADER, “hypnotic”by NME, “rumbling” by Rolling Stone, ““dark and visceral” by Clash and a “rebirth” by Pitchfork.

“It’s an imaginary dialogue between two characters, which could either be myself or people I know,” says Cole of “Skin Game.” “I spent six months in several different rehab facilities at the beginning of 2017. I was living with other addicts. Being a recovering addict myself, there are a lot of questions like, ‘Who are we? What is this disease?’ Our last record was about recovery in general, but I truthfully didn’t buy in. I decided to live in my disease instead. ‘Skin Game’ looks at where the pain comes from. I’m looking at the personal, physical, emotional, and broader political experiences feeding into the cycle of addiction for millions of us.”

After finishing a run of tour dates earlier this autumn, including three sold out shows in New York, DIIV will embark on the West Coast leg of their tour this week in support of Deceiver. The dates include two sold out LA shows. The band will kick off their UK tour in February 2020 calling at O2 Forum Kentish Town in London on 27th February 2020.
