The release date for DIR EN GREY's 11th album "PHALARIS" has been set to June 15.
"PHALARIS" comes about 3 years and 9 months after their last album "The Insulated World" was released in September of 2018. It will be available for purchase in 3 different types: Complete Production Edition, Limited Edition, and Regular Edition. The Complete Production Edition will be a three-disc set consisting of a CD, a bonus CD, and a Blu-ray or DVD. The Blu-ray and DVD will contain footage from the band's concert 'Sogai,' which was held last June at Tokyo Garden Theater. More details on the album will be revealed at a later date.
From June to July, DIR EN GREY will hold a nationwide tour titled 'TOUR22 PHALARIS -Vol.I-.' It will kick off with a 'a knot' members only concert on June 2 at KT Zepp Yokohama and wrap up on July 16 at Namba Hatch. You can check out the schedule below.
