Today, DIIV reveal their new single, “Blankenship”, taken from their forthcoming third full-length album, Deceiver, released on 4th October 2019 via Captured Tracks. The song’s ominous bass line and crawling beat devolve into frenetic string bends and vitriolic lyrics that welcome inspection of the song’s namesake. The acerbic song is paired with the band’s first music video in six years, shot in California in Trona Pinnacles, Sequoia National Park, and in Los Angeles; and directed by Sean Stout (Deafheaven, Death Grips, Chelsea Wolfe).
DIIV today also announce news of a full UK tour for February 2020 including their biggest London show to date at The O2 Forum Kentish Town on 27th February 2020. Tickets go on sale on Tuesday 27th September at 9am. The band will embark on a North American tour in October and December including Desert Daze Festival and a performance at Warsaw in Brooklyn, NY on October 24th, with European dates still to be announced.
