DIIV - Starting Now (Documentary)


Published on 1 year ago

DIIV open up about sobriety, their near-break up, and the new phase of their band in Starting Now, The FADER’s new documentary.

"I was worried," DIIV guitarist Andrew Bailey says. "Like, 'I wonder if Cole's going to be able to stay clean.; But then as soon as he got clean, I was like, "Oh wait of course he is" because that's just how he does everything."

In Starting Now, The FADER’s intimate and revealing new documentary on one of the past decade’s most fascinating and complicated bands, we explore the tumultuous period in the aftermath of the 2016 release of DIIV’s sophomore record Is The Is Are, and focussing specifically on the band’s sessions recording last year’s Deceiver with producer Sonny Diperri, Starting Now lets DIIV and frontman Zachary Cole Smith speak their own truth for one of the first times in their career.

The release of Starting Now also coincides with a gargantuan milestone for the band: this Thursday’s headline show at London’s O2 Forum Kentish Town, their largest show in the city to date. A 2,300-capacity room, it feels like an appropriately grand venue for the dark melodies of Deceiver. Watch Starting Now above and find tickets to this Thursday’s show here.

How beautiful it is to see an independent band working on their projects, and speaking of DIIV, may their trajectory be forever full of success. I have been following these kids since the beginning and they will always have a special place in our hearts. ♥

Loved this documentary. Totally fell in love with DIIVs latest album. Would love to see these guys live. I swear I've listened to this album nearly 200 times now.

I’m so curious what happened to Devin and why the new bassist talks as if he’s been in the band for years. I thought he just joined. Am I missing something?

Does anyone have any insight on why they haven't released Big Joke and Corvalis properly? They're both hidden on Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/album/3TFLjCACwdFjK3bMGVDLaV

Thank you to the band for taking the time to put this together. I appreciate getting to know what they were thinking about and where they are coming from with these songs. I'm pulling hard for these guys to stay clean because selfishly I want to see what their music will be like in 5-10 years as they evolve. Love DIIV.

I love it! The words that Cole said at the end put a lot of tears in my eyes :')

Tanner Alder

I think all of them especially Cole have trouble doubting themselves, but they’re fucken rock legends. DIIV has such a unique but also incredible sound and energy/aesthetic, they’re just cool ass people. And they’re very real, their music is very personal, no pretentiousness or lying buzzwords. I wish more people in music focused on the art like they do. I’m glad Cole is being honest with himself about the wrongs he’s done but give him a break. Drug addiction is hard as fuck, especially heroin, and the fact that he was able to put out 3 near flawless albums while struggling with that is amazing to me.
