Rebirth takes place when everything falls apart. On DIIVs forthcoming third full-length album,Deceiver (out 10/4 on Captured Tracks), they craft the soundtrack to personal resurrectionunder the heavy weight of metallic catharsis, upheld by robust guitars and vocal tension thatalmost snaps, but never quite Today, the bandZachary Cole Smith [lead vocals, guitar],Andrew Bailey [guitar], Colin Caulfield [bass], and Ben Newman [drums]releases lead singleSkin Game, which gallops forth on a clean guitar riff before unfolding into a hypnotic hookoffset by an off-kilter rhythm and hummable solo.Its an imaginary dialogue between two characters, which could either be myself or people Iknow, says Cole of Skin Game. I spent six months in several different rehab facilities at thebeginning of 2017. I was living with other addicts. Being a recovering addict myself, there are alot of questions like, Who are we? What is this disease? Our last record was about recovery ingeneral, but I truthfully didnt buy in. I decided to live in my disease instead. Skin Game looksat where the pain comes from. Im looking at the personal, physical, emotional, and broaderpolitical experiences feeding into the cycle of addiction for millions of us.Deceiver was recorded in March, 2019 in Los Angeles. For the first time, the band enlisted anoutside producer in the form of Sonny Diperri (My Bloody Valentine, Nine Inch Nails,Protomartyr) whose presence dramatically expanded the sonic palette, making it richer andfuller than ever before. The new album is preceded by 2012s Oshin and 2016s critical and fanfavorite Is the Is Are . NME ranked it in the Top 10 among the Albums of the Year andPitchforks audience voted Is the Is Are one of the Top 50 Albums of 2016 as the outletdubbed it, gorgeous.The band will embark on a North American tour in October and December including DesertDaze Festival and a performance at Warsaw in Brooklyn, NY.
