they already released withering to death in the us, a new single has been announced, titled Ryoujoku no Ame which is to be released July 26, 2006. There are also rumors of a new album to be released later this year, though this seems unlikely due to the band's current live schedule spanning three continents.
Dir En Grey is awesome. It'd be kinda neat for them to get some US recognition.
Still listen to some raison d'etre, unknown...despair...a lost, the FINAL, drain away...
Now i just wanna go listen to some right now...and I WILL!
I've just started listening to them, and I reeeally like them!! Obscure and Saku is two of the songs I like at the moment!
I think there's a looong way to go before they come to Norway, so I have to comfort myself by watching their videos... I just have to ignore the not-so-pretty-parts of the older ones... visual kei and all...
I like Shinya... I don't know why but I always like the shy ones... and usually the drummers!
YES! someone else likes obscure!
I was wondering,... and I'd like some girls to answer
Is it really that weird for me as a girl to like Dir en Grey?
I was just chatting with some ppl in some chatserver, and as soon as I was talking about me liking Dir en Grey, they were "convinced" I was a guy =_=
Why can't a girl just like Dir en Grey?!! I'm not that kawaii type of girl.....
My favorites are Umbrella, Pink Killer, FINAL and kodou.

A LOT of girls like dir en grey. in fact, it seems more girls like them than guys...
EDIT: i happen to be a girl who likes them. in fact, i prefer their hardest songs.
hmm... i'm a girl too and i know a whole wack of girls who love them... reasons can vary though lol some like em for their prettiness or just for their sound and some girls were forced to listen and then started liking them lol hm.. i like it all i almost started crying listening to embryo but i would be so pumped and screaming along with The Domestic family F*cker. but one song i can't really agree on is cleaver sleazoid....So how did you people get into diru?
someone told me they all looked like girls about 3 years ago, but also that they had good music. about 2.5 years later, someone mentioned them again in a list of bands people should check out. i remembered the name from before and decided to check them out. kisou was my first album, vulgar my second (i only have two). i checked out vulgar because i heard 'obscure' on someone's myspace profile (since then it has been my favorite song from them).
Well over here there aren't much girls listening to j-music, in fact the most j-rock lovers are boys since most of the girls over here don't really like all that hard stuff... so yeah, they say I'm weird, but hey, I don't care ^^
I was listening to a j-rock radio-station.... so I didn't even knew how they looked like, so I didn't choose them on their appearance. But man, I just loved all that Dir en Grey-noise when I heard "pink killer" I only have the downloaded album of Vulgar and some random downloads from them... I'd like to have some more but I can't use online-creditcards or stuff like that... Can someone recommend some more of their great songs? ^^

where in the netherlands are you from? i've seen quite a few girls on myspace from there that liked certain types of metal, even. but i guess it's just a regional thing. i mean, you can't speak for your entire country, lol.
don't worry, you're not weird. it sounds more like you're fairly open-minded. and THAT's infinitely good.
