Brooklyn indie rockers DIIV are set to release their third studio album, Deceiver, on October 4th, 2019 through Captured Tracks. The forthcoming effort follows 2016’s Is the Is Are. It’s also the group’s first since frontman Zachary Cole Smith checked himself into “long-haul inpatient treatment” for substance abuse in 2017. Smith’s treatment and recovery period appear to have played an important part in the making of the record. Per a statement, Deceiver is described as “the soundtrack to personal resurrection under the heavy weight of metallic catharsis.” Spanning 10 tracks, the album was recorded this past March in Los Angeles. Sessions featured — for the first time ever — the help of an outside producer in Sonny Diperri (Nine Inch Nails, My Blood Valentine). The lead single "Skin Game" can be streamed below.
