I've decided to make the website live despite the fact that there
is still quite a bit of work to be done. I've come into some extra
free time recently and decided to get some work done here. I'll
be posting updates as each section begins to come together. I
thank all of you for your patience, and I look forward to getting
things up and running.

"Best of" CD but don't let that put you off. The songs are
fan chosen and 3 amazing songs have been redone, and new music
videos as well!!! You can purchase their new cd at CD Japan.
The discography has been updated to their most recent
releases. If you happen to notice anything out of place
or any miss information, please shoot me an email! Thanks!
I'm working on various small parts of the website, so ill
be posting those updates once in a while. My current project
had been working on the tracklisting for the singles section.
Nothing hugely amazing, just adding a little depth. So the

go check it out here if you'd like. If you see any issues
such as broken links or anything out of place please feel free

According to attendees of a recent A-KNOT meeting held in Japan,
Kyo is beginning to sing again. Months after the band cancelled
tours and went on hiatus due to the frontman's health complications,
Kyo underwent microsurgery and is slowly easing back into his trade
while the rest of the band has worked on individual projects and have
reportedly been crafting new songs.
Inoue and Takabayashi Masuda spoke as representatives of the band at the
A-KNOT meeting and will hopefully continue to disclose Kyo's progress as
the band steps towards their (potential) much-awaited return.
Despite Kyo's illness, Dir en grey has still kept themselves busy!!!

Something Degnat has yet to address here is the tragedy of the earthquakes and
tsunami that hit Japan back in March. It has been brought to our attention,
and the attention of all fans and supporters, just how serious their situation
has become. It was Dir en grey themselves that took the time to write an open
letter to us, asking us for our support as their fans, and just as people who
care about the world and humanity. Please take a moment of your time to read
what they had to say, and to show them your support. For many years Dir en grey
has been there for us, and delivered nothing but their whole hearts and souls
into every album they have given to us. It's our turn now, to give them our
hearts and souls, supporting them and doing everything we can to help their
cause. You can see a copy of their letter here: Dir en grey Open Letter
