Here’s some parts of an interview with Ruki from Shoxx vol.245.
How much has [the new album] progressed so far?
Ruki: Just a bit now and we’ll be done with pre-production, and the lyrics are still to be done. They’re still at a temporary stage.
Do they change considerably from the temporary lyrics?
Ruki: Sometimes they do, and sometimes they don’t change that much. But they often do change.
The album title, BEAUTIFUL DEFORMITY, has already been announced so that means there’s already an idea behind it?
Ruki: Yes. Because this time the concept was also to create a “the GazettE” album. In the beginning, everyone was misled by the word “DEFORMITY” but it’s not something focused only on that. The album’s concept is also that we wanted to make it an album with each member’s songs on it in the form that all members agree on.
What kind of album will BEAUTIFUL DEFORMITY be in terms of composition?
Ruki: I guess there’s lots of variation. But, it’s not like TOXIC and DIVISION. Speaking of song variation, it’s closer to our older albums. Closer to STACKED RUBBISH and NIL.
I see. And DIM was a conceptual album.
Ruki: Yeah. DIM was a thing for itself. This one is different from that. It might also give off an impression like, “This is what you’re doing in this day and age!?” Well, I’ll talk about the specifics sometime in the future.
