The GazettE's new single consists of two songs: "Shiver" and "Hesitating Means Death." The limited edition, Shiver: Optical Impression, includes the music video for "Shiver" along with its making-of. The regular version, Shiver: Auditory Impression, will include a third song, "Naraku."
The single also serves as the band's anime debut, as "Shiver" will be used for the opening of the second season of popular series Kuroshitsuji (黒執事). GazettE will thus be releasing a third version of their single, Kuroshitsuji II, which includes "Shiver," its TV version, and the Kuroshitsuji second season opening video. All three versions of the single will be released on July 21 and include collector's cards.
Immediately following the release of "Shiver," GazettE will commence with a two-part Japan-wide tour called Tour10 Nameless Liberty Six Bullets, starting on July 22nd and 23rd at Nippon Budokan and ending on August 31st at the Nagoya Congress Center Sentyury Hall. Part two of the tour will run from October 1st to November 2nd, completing the nation-wide tour.
The GazettE will also be releasing a second music video compilation titled Film Bug II on August 4th, a follow-up to 2006's Film Bug I.
