Rebirth takes place when everything falls apart. DIIV—Zachary Cole Smith [lead vocals, guitar], Andrew Bailey [guitar], Colin Caulfield [bass], and Ben Newman [drums]—craft the soundtrack to personal resurrection under the heavy weight of metallic catharsis upheld by robust guitars and vocal tension that almost snaps, but never quite…
The same could be said of the journey these four musicians underwent to get to their third full-length album, Deceiver. Out of lies, fractured friendships, and broken promises, clarity would be found.
“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.”
A whirlwind brought DIIV there.
Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds will release ‘This Is The Place’ on 9/27. The five track EP features three brand new songs as well as two remixes. Although completely disparate sonically, the three new tracks each feature soaring female backing vocals and nod to different iterations of psych. This is the second EP of new music from Noel in 2019 following the release of ‘Black Star Dancing’ in June of this year. Noel will join Smashing Pumpkins on tour across the US later this month.
