Three years after Is The Is Are, American band DIIV (Zachary Cole Smith, Andrew Bailey, Ben Newman and Colin Caulfield) announced the release of a new album. Deceiver is out on October 4th via Captured Tracks. “Skin Game” is the first excerpt.
“I’ve known everyone in the band for ten years plus separately and together as DIIV for at least the past five years,” says Cole. “On Deceiver, I’m talking about working for the relationships in my life, repairing them, and accepting responsibility for the places I’ve failed them. I had to re-approach the band. It wasn’t restarting from a clean slate, but it was a new beginning. It took time—as it did with everybody else in my life—but we all grew together and learned how to communicate and collaborate.”
