DIR EN GREY just finished their 2-day Nippon Budokan extravaganza. As per usual, they had some big announcements to make after the show. The first is the release of a new single in July 2016. No further details have been released yet.
What’s more, their Budokan shows will be made into a DVD! It will be released in June 2016.
Now that their “ARCHE” tour is effectively complete, it’s about time DIR EN GREY announced their next tour plans. They delighted fans in 2013 when they announced their “[mode of GAUZE]” tour, the setlist of which was taken mostly from their 1999 album “GAUZE.”
In June, DIR EN GREY will continue this trend of looking back in their tour “[mode of VULGAR].” Like “[mode of GAUZE],” the setlist is expected to be largely from their album of the same title released in 2003. Here are the dates and venues.
