●In March they release album “Withering to death.” and tour for 2 and 1/2 months around Japan.
In May, they perform for the first time in Europe in Berlin, Germany.
The capacity holding 3500 people was overcrowded with fans from all over the world, some pulling an all-nighter just to see them perform. The fans got too excited and local police and firefighters had to be called in to put the situation under control.
Next day, this incident made headlines in the local papers.
Right after this show, they perform at 2 major festivals “ROCK AM RING” and “ROCK IM PARK” both held in Germany.
In July, they perform at the historical venue “Olympia” in Paris, France with the crowd of 2500.
They also perform at Belgium’s festival.
The press and media from countries around the world now had to fight for DIR EN GREY’s interview time.
 
●Right after returning home from Europe, they tour Japan.
In November they join the “Taste of Chaos” tour in Japan alongside THE USED, and KILLSWITCH ENAGE.
