  • DIIV Announces New Album “Frog In Boiling Water”, Shares New Song “Brown Paper Bag”

  • American rock band DIIV, consisting of Andrew Bailey (guitar), Colin Caulfield (bass), Ben Newman (drums), and Zachary Cole Smith (vocals/guitar), has announced their fourth studio album “Frog In Boiling Water” will be released on May 24, 2024.

    The album is their first LP in five years since the 2019 album “Deceiver” and comprises a 10-track.
    The album's title was inspired by Daniel Quinn's 1996 philosophical novel “The Story of B”.
    The band said of the album, “If you drop a frog in a pot of boiling water, it will of course frantically try to clamber out. But if you place it gently in a pot of tepid water and turn the heat on low, the frog will sink into a tranquil stupor, exactly like one of us in a hot bath, and before long, with a smile on its face, it will unresistingly allow itself to be boiled to death.”
  • They continued, “We understand the metaphor to be one about a slow, sick, and overwhelmingly banal collapse of society under end-stage capitalism, the brutal realities we've maybe come to accept as normal. That's the boiling water and we are the frogs. The album is more or less a collection of snapshots from various angles of our modern condition which we think highlights what this collapse looks like and, more particularly, what it feels like.”

  • From the album, the band released the first single called “Brown Paper Bag” on February 15, 2024.
    The track was written by Andrew Bailey, Benjamin D Newman, Colin Edward Caulfield, and Zachary Cole Smith. Produced by Chris Coady.
    The band dropped a new music video for the song directed by Parker Sprout on February 26, 2024.
    The video features a fake Saturday Night Live performance and American rapper Fred Durst as the host.
    Fred Durst said, “I'm Fred Durst and I am hosting Saturday Night Lies this week with musical guest DIIV. It's been a dream of mine to host SNL, especially with a band as cozy as yours.”
    The video ends with an advert for the band's Soul-Net website.
