DIR EN GREY, a new jacket that shows "the truth"

The artwork for the new jacket was created by Koji Yoda, who was also helping with announced in 2011 “DUM SPIRO SPERO” and released in 2012 “Rinkaku”. Using 4 suggestions from the band - “beginning, water” “something that will feel like being born” “something shapeless, not defined etc” “being inside a living thing” - as keywords he created an original artwork. Furthermore, Yoda made a comment “it’s not about what was the story at the present time, it’s about what you will feel after seeing it and taking it into your hands. From that you will get an answer. The ‘ARCHE’ I saw was the rediscovered 'truth’”.

Also, the content of the Special Limited Edition (kyotaku: DVD/Blu-ray with 2CDs) was fully revealed. The additional disc from Special Limited Edition will not only include new songs “and Zero”, “ Tefutefu”, but also remixes of “SUSTAIN THE UNTRUTH” and “Unraveling”, acoustic version of new songs “Soshaku” and “Behind a vacant image”, and a crossover version of “Uroko”, a total of 7 songs.
