It’s been nearly three years since atmospheric New York guitar-rock band DIIV released their debut LP, Oshin, but fear not — we’ll have a new album in our paws by the end of 2015. The band announced today that their sophomore record will be called Is the Is Are and it’ll be released sometime this fall on Captured Tracks.
Meanwhile, DIIV will have plenty of chances to show off the new music on the summer festival circuit, as they ready to play Desert Daze in California, Levitation (formerly known as Austin Psych Fest), Barcelona’s Primavera Sound, and Governors Ball in New York City.
