Japanese alt-metal band Dir En Grey has announced a three week N. American headlining tour that will see the travel much of the US and dip into Canada. The band will be touring in support of their last studio album Dum Spiro Spero as well as their new EP The Unraveling, which was released earlier this year. The full tour schedule can be seen below.
I saw Dir En Grey on the Family Values tour in 2006 and they put on one hell of an energetic, violent show. Singer Kyo scratched himself so deeply on the chest that he bled. He also raked his fingernails against the inside of his cheeks to the point that he was spitting blood. He also threw up into a bucket. I’m not going to go so far as comparing him to G.G. Allin (because who can even come close to that guy?), but it was pretty intense.
