the GazettE to Re-release NIL, STACKED RUBBISH and DIM in the UK and Europe

the GazettEJapan’s ‘visual kei’ veterans the GazettE will release their first three major-label albums in physical and digital formats in Europe through London’s JPU Records, ahead of the release of their hotly anticipated eighth album DOGMA.

Breakthrough album NIL (Nameless Liberty Underground) saw the group emerge from Japan’s underground visual kei scene and become one of the biggest, most influential names in the genre. When released in 2006, the album reached number four in the Oricon Weekly Album Chart and the tour surrounding it brought the GazettE in front of 20,000 fans for its finale at The Nippon Budokan, the country’s most revered venue. NIL will be available from 10 July in the UK and soon after in the rest of Europe.

Follow up album STACKED RUBBISH gave the band their highest chart position to date, reaching number three in Japan’s album chart in 2007 and redefined visual kei in the process. The album experimented with elements of R&B, jazz and blues, and incorporated into the band’s existing heavy, aggressive and dark sound. The results crossed boundaries, even countries, as the GazettE embarked on their first world tour, including a show at a packed out O2 Academy Islington from word of mouth alone. STACKED RUBBISH will be available from 14 August 2015, and had several tracks available to buy in advance from iTunes right now, including fan favourites Filth in the beauty (one unofficially uploaded video of the song has over five million hits on YouTube), high-energy anthem HYENA and the moody theme from Korean horror flick APT; Chizuru.

The last of this year’s re-releases will be DIM, an album described as having riffs as “heavy as the soul of Dracula” and sounding like “Slipknot playing Powerman 5000 covers” by AllMusic’s Alexey Eremenko. Leading up to its release, the GazettE performed a guerrilla gig outside of Shinjuku Station, the world’s busiest transport hub. Police had to pul the plug on when several thousand fans turned up to the secret event. DIM includes the group’s first single to reach number two in the charts, LEECH. The album will also be released on 14 August 2015, with several tracks available now from iTunes.

The CD editions of the albums include the original photo and lyric booklets, as well as all-new booklets containing new images and the lyrics translated into English and Romaji.

the GazettE Comment on Winning the NEO Magazine Awards Two Years in a Row

Click for full-size

the GazettE return to claim the Best Musical Act award in the NEO Awards for a second consecutive year. This British magazine goes on to state that the GazettE ‘received 45% of the total vote… beating their nearest rival several times over’. The band comments;

“Thank you so much. We travelled across the world in 2013, and could actually feel that there are a lot of fans awaiting us out there. It’s a shame that we had been in UK just once and couldn’t include there as one of the stops in the previous tour. Though, we hope we can ‘rock’ with you next time we go there.”

In 2013 the GazettE toured Europe, released the maxi-single FADELESS and full length album BEAUTIFUL DEFORMITY – both of which are available now in Europe from JPU Records.

What’s in store for 2014? It’s already getting off to an exciting star as band’s European tour DVD prepares for release, entitled; 「the GazettE WORLD TOUR13 Documentary」
