Versailles World Tour Dates

Despite tragedy and some pretty heavy hard-times hitting the band last year, it would certainly seem that Versailles is fighting back with a lot of gumption. They are without a doubt putting the “world” back in the term “world-tour” this year with their extensive international circuit, circling through Japan, North and South America, and Europe. The band announced that they will perform 7 more dates in Japan, wrapping it up on September 4th with a tour-final at CC Lemon Hall. Here are the final dates for the rest of the tour– with South America and European dates included.

D: Please Do Samurai, Not Versailles

…That being said, however, the moderate “bleh” ness of the 7th Rose PV is sort of redeemed by new single Kaze ga Mekuru PAGE‘s PV. Yes, it’s one of those happy, upbeat with-a-Goth-twist songs that is faintly dissonant and mentally disconcerting to anyone who thought they had a firm grip on their understanding of reality, but that’s a good thing. ASAGI and co. look so much more badass in hakama and kimono than they do in poofy Hizaki hand-me-down prom gowns and super pasty makeup.

 Yes, the guitar riffs are nothing special, and the vocals threaten, at times, to lurch into the usual happy-D-song medium, but Kaze ga has a good vibe, and actually sounds like a confidentally composed song. In fact, it sounds like one of their more “Jrock”y pieces, with a guitar pattern that almost rings of GACKT…two artists I thought I would never dare to mix in one post. Anyway, the song is good, and the PV is (very D) elegant…
