DIIV are touring in support of their latest album, ‘Deceiver’, released October 2019. It is their third studio album – preceded by 2016’s ‘Is The Is Are’ and 2012’s ‘Oshin’ – and their first without former bassist Devin Ruben Perez, who had been called out in 2014 for making bigoted comments on the message board 4Chan.

‘Deceiver’ also came after frontman Zachary Cole Smith underwent in-patient treatment for recovery from drug addiction. “The big thing was that in all my exposure to recovery, I was looking for an easy solution and I found out there’s not one,” he told NME in an interview.

DIIV’s 2020 Australia tour dates are:

Perth, Rosemount Hotel (April 22)
Sydney, Manning Bar (24)
Brisbane, The Zoo (25)
Hobart, Altar (26)
Melbourne, The Croxton (28)
