"TOUR12-13 IN SITU-TABULA RASA" Artwork: Message from Kamikene (Art Director/Graphic Designer) 8/7 up

 "IN SITU" and "TABULA RASA". I did not simply take the titles and made them into art but tried to bring out a simpler form of presentation to comprehend the various feelings and sensations that came from the titles. What came out of it was something that resonated with DIR EN GREY's sound, its ring, echo, sensation, and atmosphere. Those were the two things I imposed onto myself.

I thought that as long as I could overcome all that, I would personally be able to close in on the core of the band's work while working freely on my creation.

When I listened to DIR EN GREY's sound with this design, the sound was refreshing. In fact if it reverberates then you can say that this graphic was a success. I would be pleased for each and every one of the fans to decide for themselves in their sincerity if the graphic worked.

I am in utmost gratitude to the band members and all label staff for presenting me with this opportunity and for understanding my ideas and aims, especially for the Initial Limited Version, from choosing the right material to printing technique, for allowing me to put emphasis into the whole process.

DIR EN GREY emerges from their silence to paint a new path on a blank canvas

After the band's announcement to go into hiatus following Kyo's (Voice) problems with his vocal chords in February 2012, the band emerged out of the silence to once again walk down a new path documented in a new DVD to be released this September!
In October 2012, the band embarked on a nationwide tour "IN SITU" harboring the meaning 'In its original place', after 9 months off the stage. In December, they released their new single "RINKAKU" followed by a live show at the TOKYO INTERNATINLAL FORUM on December 25th, as they continued to overwhelm an overcrowded theatre with their unwavering stage presence. April of the following year, the band shocked their fans once again with their relentless vigor with the release of new mini album "THE UNRAVELING".
After the SHINKIBA STUDIO COAST show on May 16th, the last show on the "TOUR2013 TABULA RASA", Kyo succumbed to high fever caused by the severe inflammation of his tonsils and had to be hospitalized. There was not an ounce of energy left in him after that last show but that was the result of going above the limitations of his body. 
What was it that kept them going on?
Find out through the cameras that followed the band, who are under constant and tremendous assessment and delve into the thoughts of each band member. See the truth unfold through the lens of the cameras as they close in on DIR EN GREY and what lies behind them in Japan and overseas.
