DIIV "BLANKENSHIP" MUSIC VIDEO PREMIERE // REVOLVER + FIRST ROUND OF EU DATES 

 

Shoegaze and grunge are the major touchstones that usually come up when discussing L.A.'s DIIV, but on their forthcoming third album, Deceiver, the band dives deep into some of their heavier influences, including Neurosis and Deafheaven. Those influences come particularly to the fore on the song "Blankenship," which makes its debut here, along with its gorgeous yet ominous desert-set music video, directed by Revolver contributor Sean Stout (Deafheaven, Trash Talk, Death Grips).

NEW SONG & VIDEO “DERANGED FOR ROCK & ROLL" PREMIERE // THE FADER  

(Premiere via The FADER)

In advance of her new album, Birth of Violence, the uncategorizable artist talks about the new levels of depression that the past year has unlocked and premieres a new video for “Deranged for Rock & Roll.”

Chelsea Wolfe has spent her decade-long music career in the in-between. As a prolific tourer, she’s persistently been between cities; as a musician who’s as drawn to Aaliyah as she is to Sunn O))), she veers between the hard and soft. As a clairvoyant and spiritualist — someone who claims to be in contact with the ‘spiritual realm’ — she exists between the films of life and death. And most of all, Wolfe lies between waking and dreaming. Her seven albums to date have been imbued with a hypnagogic affection — as powerful as a dream which impresses itself onto your day. “Dreams of endless landscapes,” she sung on 2015’s Abyss, capturing her sound in words. From a young age, Wolfe suffered from night terrors. She had an extraordinary case of sleep paralysis, and her parents took her to a sleep research clinic to be experimented on — an experience that has seeped into her music and lyrics, the white walls of the clinic as she remembers them provide the backdrop to the artwork for her previous album, 2017's Hiss Spun

Hear DIIV Deliver Aching Confessional on New Song ‘Taker’ // Rolling Stone 

(via Rolling Stone)

Brooklyn indie rockers DIIV have shared the lumbering and brutally honest new song “Taker” off their upcoming album, Deceiver, out October 4th via Captured Tracks. 

“Taker” recalls classic grunge-era ballads, moving at a brooding, down-tempo pace as the drums thud and the guitars shift between a crackle and a roar. Frontman Zachary Cole Smith delivers an airy vocal performance over the heavy stomp, slipping in some deft harmonies as well as he confesses, “Who were you to believe?/Your lying eyes or me?/I won’t let them tie to you/The shit I put you through.” 

“Taker” follows previously released Deceiver track, “Skin Game,” which was released in July. Deceiver is DIIV’s third album and follows their 2016 offering Is the Is Are and their 2012 debut Oshin. The band recorded the LP in Los Angeles this March, working with an outside producer for the first time in Sonny Diperri, who’s previously worked with My Bloody Valentine and Nine Inch Nails.
