Never Free From The Awakening – Dir en Grey

After two years away, Japanese extreme metal group, Dir en Grey, return to North America for a 7 stop tour.

After two years, Dir en Grey return to the North American continent for a small run of shows. The Japanese extreme metal group will visit seven cities in the United States, Mexico, and Canada. Earlier in October, guitarist Kaoru left a message for fans on their instagram channel letting fans know that they plan to play songs that were played when they first toured the US. Expect songs from their albums Withering to Death and The Marrow of a Bone. Hopefully a few songs from their most recent album Arche will also make an appearance since North American fans have not been able to see those live yet.

At the time of this writing, the shows at Chicago and New York are already sold out! So if you are planning to go, make sure to not procrastinate and pick up a ticket.

One of the most successful non-English speaking metal acts, Dir en Grey continues to defy classification. While their earlier work had more rock and punk tones, they’ve settled into a unique blend of progressive metal, hardcore, black metal, and gothic sounds.
While Dir en Grey is hard to place within a certain genre, fans of bands like Arcturus, Dillinger Escape Plan, The Atlas Moth, and Between the Buried and Me may like the experimental sound Dir en Grey produces.
