Dir en grey - Glass Skin

Dir en grey

The wait is finally over! Dir en grey returns with the brand new single "Glass Skin." Their first new release since October 2007's stunningly melodic release "Dozing Green," "Glass Skin" is set to show you how the band's evolved in the last year. as well as what to expect on Dir en grey's upcoming new album "Uroboros"!

The new single includes three songs all set to contrast starkly with the sound of the band's most recent album "The Marrow of a Bone." First, title track "Glass Skin" sees Dir en grey continue farther into the direction started with "Glass Skin" with a brittle, melancholic number. Track two sees Dir remake the semi-acoustic track "undecided" off of 2002's "Kisou" album into the style of the band's current sound. Continuing the acoustic theme, track three features the highly-anticipated unplugged version of recent hit "Agitated Screams of Maggots."

Dir en grey's new single "Glass Skin" is available in two varieties. Order the regular edition to receive the three tracks listed above, or order the limited edition to receive all that plus a bonus live recording of "Ryojoku no Ame" from Dir en grey's May 23, 2008 performance at the Yokohama Blitz and cardboard sleeve case.
