While I am no fan of their music, my heart will always hold a special place for Dir En Grey.
When I was working at Noisecreep, the band flew me over to Japan to cover one of their shows. It was awesome. I loved being in Japan, and wished I could have stayed.
The Japanese rock band has announced a headline run of 14 North American cities that commences in Dallas on November 3 and concludes on November 24 at the House of Blues in Los Angeles.
“Renowned for a self-realized vision that is unique, cross-cultural and certainly peculiar, the world-class quintet return to the continent for their first tour in almost two years. Although on the periphery of mainstream awareness domestically, the band has achieved legendary status overseas,” says a presser.
Those dates follow at the end of this post.
