DIR EN GREY has recently revealed details of their brand new full-length album titled “The Insulated World”. Being the band’s 10th album, this is also their first album in three years and nine months since their last album release “ARCHE” on December 10, 2014. The album features a total of 13 songs which include 11 new songs, in addition to two tracks released before as singles, “Utafumi” and “Ningen wo kaburu”.

“The Insulated World” will come in 4 different versions: Limited Deluxe Version that includes 2 Blu-spec CDs for the album, 1 bonus CD and 1 bonus Blu-ray or DVD; First Press Limited Version that includes the main CD with the songs and a bonus CD; and finally the Regular Version that comes only with the CD. The bonus CD in the Deluxe Version contains the remake of 3 older songs, including “kigan” (2002), “THE DEEPER VILENESS” (2007) and “Wake” (2000), as well as the live version of “Fukai”, “Ash” and “Beautiful Dirt” taken from their show held on June 30 this year at SHINKIBA STUDIO COAST. The Bonus Movie Disc (Blu-ray/DVD) will feature a selection of live clips taken from the latest “TOUR18 Shinsekai”. The footage will include 4 songs from the Sendai Ginko Hall Izumiti 21 show, held on April 28 and 4 others from the final show held at SHINKIBA STUDIO COAST on June 30. On top of the remake version of “kigan”, the bonus CD for the First Press Limited Version will also include live tracks for “Fukai” and “Beautiful Dirt”.

Furthermore, DIR EN GREY also announces details of the bonus prize project intended for the 29th single “Ningen wo kaburu” and this new album.
