DECAYS announced the release of its first full album this year.
Dir en Grey is one of Japan's most well-known Visual Kei bands - in that country as well as abroad. In July 2015 the band's guitarist Die has decided to start a solo project with MOON CHILD's drummer Kei Kashiyama and named it "DECAYS". And Die does not only play the guitar here but also sings together with THE NOVEMBERS' Yusuke Kobayashi and transgender vocalist Ataru Nakamura! The current line-up consists of Die (DIR EN GREY), Kei Kashiyama (MOON CHILD), Yusuke Kobayashi (THE NOVEMBERS), G.Terrence, Chidony, Ataru Nakamura, Ayasa and Ryota Terasawa (TORNADO GRENADE).
DECAYS first full album will drop under DREAMUSIC in December. Unfortunately the band has neither revealed the title nor the exact release date but did state that a short oneman tour will be held: On December 27th at OSAKA MUSE, on 28th at ell.FITS ALL in Nagoya and on January 4th, 2017 at Akasaka BLITZ in Tokyo.
