Hey guys! It looks like there is an “overseas” version of VAMPS’ upcoming greatest hits album, “SEX BLOOD ROCK N’ ROLL” available on CDJapan:

Regular edition: http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/detailview.html?KEY=NEOIMP-7668
CD + DVD version: http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/detailview.html?KEY=NEOIMP-7669


CDJapan has listed it as being an “import disc,” which leads me to believe that it is NOT the Japanese version of the album that’s listed here: http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/detailview.html?KEY=UICV-6660

VAMPS’ official sites have yet to neither confirm nor deny that this is an “overseas version” of the album, but another clue is the price of the “Import Disc” versus the regular edition of the original listing. The original listing here: http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/detailview.html?KEY=UICV-6660 lists the album as being $29.56, though it is an “SHM-CD” and includes an external bonus. “SHM” stands for “Super High Material” and it is an improved version of the typical compact disc, meaning it’s like a “high definition” CD. The import disc listing is $17.68 and does NOT include an external bonus.
I’ve created a table below to illustrate the differences between the albums:

[Import Disc – CD + DVD]

– 1 DVD: DVD is called “VAMPS LIVE SPECIAL EDITION” that features footage of the VAMPS lives of this year. I believe it will contain the same material as the edition with the Blu-Ray disc, minus the “VAMPS LIVE 2013 ~LIVE VIEWING~” footage, but I am not entirely sure.
