Early this year(Around April) the Brooklyn band DIIV announced  that they would be releasing an  album in October. Well shoegaze fans you can officially shit your pants with hazy, distorted bliss because  because that album now has a name! It’s Deceiver! And of course their label  Capture Tracks gave us some tasty tracks  to gnaw on while we wait for their third studio album. It’s been  nearly 3 years! It will be release October 4th!

The album was recorded in March 2019 in Los Angeles with producer Sonny Diperri(NIN and My Bloody Valentine ) and is the follow up to their 2016 album Is the Is Are. It is also the first album  after front man  Zachary Cole Smith’s long struggle with addiction.

About this new album he said it was “A light at the end of the tunnel” and  “a chance at redemption” e? What is this disease?’”

The tracks “Skin Game” and “Tracker” both sound like anew and perhaps more mature version of DIIV but still very much sound like the DIIV have come to know

If you haven’t heard of  them,DIIV came on the scene in 2011  as a part of Zachary Cole Smith’s solo project. You might have heard his name if you’ve ever listened to bands like Beach Fossils, Drawin Deez and Soft Black.
