DIIV are set to take the stage at Great American Music Hall this Thursday, May 1. Having remained quiet since releasing the lo-fi, reverb-soaked Oshin in 2011, the band are rumored to be releasing new material sometime this year.
Since the release of Oshin, singer and band ringleader Zachary Cole Smith has popped up in the headlines – mainly due to his dating an up-and-coming pop singer and for being arrested for drug-related charges. While Smith and his beau, Sky Ferreira, may be the indie “it” couple for the Yelp generation, here’s to hoping his tabloid fame won’t be eclipsing DIIV anytime soon.
DIIV most recently helped close out the famed 285 Kent in Brooklyn earlier this year. Check out the video below where the band launched into a “(Druun Pt. II)/Like a Rolling Stone” medley.
