Taking respite from a tough year so far, this July, Starwave Records will be releasing their third omnibus, celebrating four years as a rising label with a solid video sampler featuring their full artist lineup. But perhaps fans of Starwave sweethearts LIV’ERT were expecting a little more this summer, especially given LIV’ERT’s prolonged silence in the last year after their conscious uncoupling with guitarist Rio last September.
Though LIV’ERT has kept up on stage, they have released nothing original since last July’s ALIVE. Thankfully, that’s all about to change! A full year after their last release, LIV’ERT is planning to drop their fifth single, July 30th’s D.I.S! But the most eager fans may be able to snatch a copy even earlier…
D.I.S tackles “the tragedy of a distance between people that cannot be filled,” that sense of absence even in the nearest proximity. This single will consist of two unique and original tracks, complementary but parallel to each other, plus the music video for D.I.S. It will be limited to only 1000 copies, but to give fans an early opportunity to grab the new single before it flies off the shelves, LIV’ERT will be holding a free one-hour oneman at Ikebukuro CYBER on July 1st, where D.I.S will be available for immediate sale!
