Not long after the buzz created by the unveiling of Kyo (DIR EN GREY)’s solo project died down, sukekiyo has announced their first album release.
A little over an hour ago, sukekiyo’s OHP and Twitter account was updated with the exciting information. The album, titled “IMMORTALIS”, will be released on April 30th in a few different types. First, let’s look at the track list (from sukekiyo’s OHP):

The regular edition (3456yen) contains a 16-track CD. The limited edition (4104yen) includes two CDs. The contents of Disc 1 are the same as the regular edition, but the second disc contains a variety of collaborations and remixes, including works with Sugizo (LUNA SEA, X JAPAN), Hisashi (GLAY), Hitoki (Kuroyume), Shuji Ishii (cali≠gari), a special collaboration with Kirito (Angelo, ex-Pierrot), and more.
A couple of limited edition bundles will be available on Kyo’s official store, Penyunne Zemeckis. The deluxe bundle includes the two discs included in the limited edition as well as a third Blu-ray disc with live footage and two music videos (“aftermath” and “in all weathers”). It also comes with a special booklet and a t-shirt! You can grab the coveted set for 10000yen from March 10th-March 31st (JST). You can purchase a similar bundle starting April 1st for only 7500yen, but it does not include the t-shirt.
Though sukekiyo has no lives scheduled for now, fans can still look forward to this groundbreaking album by the DIR EN GREY vocalist we all know and love!
