DIIV have announced a brand new album.
Titled ‘Deceiver’, the band’s first full-length in three years will arrive on 4th October via Captured Tracks.
With a line-up now consisting of Zachary Cole Smith, Andrew Bailey, Colin Caulfield, and Ben Newman, the record was recorded in LA this March. It comes alongside a brand new track, ‘Skin Game’, which you can check out below
Talking about the album, Cole explained:
“It’s an imaginary dialogue between two characters, which could either be myself or people I know. 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.”
