WATCH: DIIV Builds An Army in Video For “Doused,” Announces European Tour Dates

Last time we checked in on Cole Smith aka DIIV, he was cooking up a batch of explosive drugs in "How Long Have You Known?" in anticipation of the release of his debut album Oshin. Now that the album is out (and truly rocks) DIIV can truly bring his sound to the masses which is exactly what he does in his new music video for "Doused."

The new video which was directed by Ian Perlman and Smith himself, intercuts footage of a frenzied crowd at an intimate DIIV show with vignettes of Smith building model airplanes, assembling army men and running in the street. We can only imagine how tired he was after a few takes of him sprinting with axe around his neck! You can watch the entire video which Rolling Stone premiered below, and make sure to pick up your tickets for FILTER's Culture Collide festival next month to see Smith and co in action. Check out all of DIIV's upcoming tour dates after the video.
