Divine Fits is an American/Canadian indie rock band composed of Britt Daniel, Dan Boeckner, Sam Brown, and Alex Fischel.[1][2]


The group was formed late 2011 after Daniel suggested to Boeckner that they form a band together.[3][4]

Their first public performances were in Austin, Texas, where they had a surprise showing before having their official debut.[5]

Initial reception for their debut album, A Thing Called Divine Fits, was positive,[6][7] with the Austinist and the Austin Chronicle praising the band.[8][9] It received 4/5 stars on music review site Allmusic.[10]

On Friday, November 16, 2012, the band made their television debut on Late Show with David Letterman.

On June 5, 2013, Divine Fits premiered two new singles, "Ain't That The Way" and "Chained to Love," on Conan. Jessica Dobson made an appearance and played guitar.
