the GazettE Unleash New Vision with Seventh Album BEAUTIFUL DEFORMITY

Fresh from completing a world tour with sold out dates across Europe, Japan’s ‘visual kei’ veterans the GazettE return with their seventh full length album BEAUTIFUL DEFORMITY, due for a worldwide digital release on 23 October, and a physical release in the UK, Europe and Russia from JPU Records.

BEAUTIFUL DEFORMITY captures the essence of what it means to be an outsider. Since their inception over a decade ago, the GazettE have found themselves being somewhat of an anomaly – separated from regular bands and musicians. Their singles have continually ranked in the top ten in Japan, but their music is far too aggressive, dark and disturbing to be recognised as pop; their guitarmanship and sea of fans headbanging in unison at live shows is a spectacle to witness, but the band’s androgynous demeanour and attention to art and aesthetics makes them an irregularity in the rock and metal worlds. The album title, combined with its unusual artwork, is a physical representation of a band that never compromise in the way of expression.

The cover art is a further metaphor, envisaging a hybrid beast made from five distinct but very different creatures. “the GazettE’s creativity depends on the individuality of all five member of the band”, explains vocalist RUKI. “Our art is a distilled combination of audio and visual”.

JPU Records’ regular edition of the album will also marry the sound and vision of the GazettE. Its 24-page booklet embodies all 14-tracks with unique artwork depicting each song, while an additional booklet will be included exclusive to the UK, Europe and Russia, containing translations of the lyrics into English.

BEAUTIFUL DEFORMITY will be released in 79 countries across the world from 23 October 2013, making it the GazettE’s biggest release so far as their overseas fandom continues to swell. If you haven’t already, it’s time to tune in and celebrate the beauty of deformity.

About Tom Smith
Some say he's fuelled on nothing but energy drinks, and that when he visits Japan, he spends the whole time engaging the ground in an all too familiar way. But what we do know is that his words on the country's entertainment and culture find their way into NEO Magazine on a monthly basis, while everything else finds its way here. Be it quirky news item from the Land of the Rising Sun, or a story so gruesome it'd be rude not to pass it on, you'll find it here along with his general posts about life, work and most importantly play. And yes, he has had articles printed in the likes of MCV, GamesMaster, 360 Gamer and more, thanks for noticing.

    Pense comigo, como vamos disponibilizar produto via email (link de download), não teremos
    despesas com frete, logística, impressão etc.

    Esto no quiere decir que no debamos incluir carbohidratos, pero debemos ser muy selectivos
    con ellos, eliminando sin duda alimentos con baja densidad nutricional, como cereales Los
    tubérculos tampoco formarán parte del plan, aunque podrías comer quizá media patata después
    de entrenar (algo es algo).

    Ce sérum est également soutenue par les céramides, qui imitent les acides gras naturels qui servent la défense de votre peau
    contre les sèche, crêpe-y texture.

    Évitez les méthodes trop « agressives », comme les régimes trop faibles en calories.
