It was announced a month ago that DIV would be releasing a new mini-album titled EDR Tokyo on March 16. It will come in regular edition, containing a total of six songs while the limited edition will have five songs and a M-Card.

We have no idea what an M-Card looks like or how it works but what we do know is that it will allow fans to download the music video for Tokyo, Nettaiya ni Tsuki (東京、熱帯夜につき), unfortunately for overseas fans, according to CDJapan there is a chance that it will not work outside of Japan. Regardless, its an interesting way to distribute exclusive content but also an alternative to fighting piracy. Previously, Kameleo used something similar for their single, Paripipo.

You may be thinking, “What the hell does ‘EDR’ actually mean?” Well, the band have stated that it stands for “Electronic Dance Rock” which seems like an alternative to EDM and is probably something that will be explored further in this release.

This should come as no surprise seeing the direction they went in for SECRET and Ikenai KISS. They’ve also been known to coin terms as they have done so before with Golden Kinema Gekijou and calling it “retreamo”, a mixture of Retro and Screamo.

How do you guys feel about bands creating unheard genres of their own and how do you feel about their current direction? Be sure to let us know in the comments below but in the meantime, check out their new look!
