With singles here and there, Dir en grey has given fans something to tide them over until the release of their new album. Yes, you heard right. Dir en grey will be releasing a new album titled “ARCHE” and many are already impatient for its’ release.
Dir en grey is currently busy with their -Gauze- tour, but they’ll be coming out with some new music this winter. While we’ve had “Rinkaku,” “The Unraveling,” and “Sustain The Untruth,” there hasn’t been a full album since “DUM SPIRO SPERO.” That’s a good three years!
Members of Dir en grey had mentioned a new album in interviews, and asked fans to wait patiently for it. Fans have had to wait, but now the album, “ARCHE,” will be released December 10th, right in the midst of their next tour. Just a fun fact: “DUM SPIRO SPERO” is Latin, but now Dir en grey switched to Greek with “ARCHE,” which means “the origin.” Perhaps Dir en grey’s past and present will mix in this album, but for now, we can only speculate. As of yet, there is not much information on this album, but we’ve got you covered. As soon as the track listing, cover art, or any sample music comes out, we’ll be sure to let you know.
But wait! There’s more good news for Dir en grey fans. To accompany to release of the new album, Dir en grey will also be touring in Japan this winter. A rather grandiose title, the tour is called “By The Grace of God.” You can start your travel plans now. Here’s the schedule!

Feel free to check the official Dir en grey website for times and prices. Also, as soon as we get more information on “ARCHE,” we’ll be sure to let you know. In the meantime, what do you think this album will entail? Though “origin” suggests a return to their older musical style, it could be a completely different sound altogether. What do you think? And can you wait that long?
