Last we heard from DIIV they were apologising for their bassist Devin Ruben Perez, who left some misogynist, racist comments on 4chan – ouch. Yesterday, however, a cryptic tweet from DIIV heralded a new album on the horizon:

It's called Is the Is Are (unremarkable, basically ungoogleable words by themselves, so perhaps a comment on… words) and it'll be out later this year, autumn/fall, on Captured Tracks. See below for when you might be able to catch them live at a venue near you.
