Japan’s DIR EN GREY are on schedule to release a new DVD, entitled Shinkiba, on April 28th in North America as a Japanese import only and in two versions–a standard edition and a limited edition with an alternate cover and two bonus discs. The band just released another DVD this week called, A Knot Of, which chronicles their touring activities between 2005 and 2007. Shinkiba features live footage from the band’s 2008 “The Rose Trims Again” tour.
DIR EN GREY guitarist Kaoru comments: “Through this DVD, you will see that DIR EN GREY is having a pretty solid run with things now. In the concert featured here, we only played a few songs from Uroboros, but the band already has a firm grasp on the world of Uroboros. It’ll be an interesting watch.
“It’s different from our last DVD, A Knot Of, so check it out!
“We’re working on our next North American tour now so until then, soak up the DVD and wait patiently for our return! Thank you guys, always!”
