DIIV are back. The band’s third full length album, Deceiver, is out now via Captured Tracks.
You’d have heard the darkly propulsive ‘Skin’, the melancholic ‘Taker’ and more recently the frenzied ‘Blankenship.’ Now hear them amongst a collection of some of DIIV’s most impressive, and darkest, work yet.
Rebirth takes place when everything falls apart. On Deceiver DIIV crafts the soundtrack to personal resurrection under the heavyweight 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.
