DIIV released their sophomore album, Is the Is Are, back at the beginning of the month via Captured Tracks. Now the band have announced some new tour dates, which are below. Also DIIV (frontman Zachary Cole Smith and Colin Caulfield) have covered the late Elliott Smith's "Ballad of Big Nothing," from Smith's 1997 album Either/Or. The acoustic cover was done for HERO Magazine's HERO Sessions. As HERO reports, Elliott Smith is one of Zachary Cole Smith's big idols and he even owns an acoustic guitar once played by Elliott Smith (Cole Smith's girlfriend, singer Sky Ferreira, gave it to him). Check out the cover below too, followed by Elliott Smith's original.

Previously DIIV had shared the Is the Is Are songs "Dopamine," "Bent (Roi's Song)," "Mire (Grant's Song)," "Is the Is Are," and "Under the Sun."
