The GazettE Turn Ten!

Popular visual kei band the GazettE are turning ten! Now that 2012 has arrived, the J-rock quintet plan to celebrate a decade of ‘Gazerock‘ with a special live performance: ‘10TH ANNIVERSARY THE DECADE‘. The concert is set to take place on March 10th at the Makuhari Messe hall, Chiba, and will no doubt be a momentous occasion for those attending. For those relying on DVD coverage (which sadly applies to most fans living outside Japan), fear not because the band has also revealed that a new album is on its way! Oh, it’s a good year to be a GazettE fan. 

The upcoming album ‘DIVISION‘ is due to be released in August, surprisingly close to their most recent album ‘TOXIC‘ which only came out last October. This is all the more impressive considering there was a two year gap between ‘TOXIC‘ and its immediate predecessor ‘DIM‘. Of the new album, the GazettE‘s vocalist Ruki has tweeted: “This time we are releasing the album without any single releases. Please look forward to it, as it’s going to come out with only the new songs.”* Which means an entire album of brand-spanking new material!

If you’re unfamiliar with the band then now is the perfect time to get acquainted; keep your eyes peeled for our list of 10 favourite GazettE songs. In the meantime, check out the brilliant PV below for ‘THE SUICIDE CIRCUS‘ from the album ‘TOXIC‘ as a taster.
