Background[edit | edit source]

In early 2005, Church of Misery announced via their website that a tour of Europe was in the works, mainly in support of the European version of The Second Coming being released via French label My Own Salvation. These dates would turn out to be their first ever tour outside of their native Japan. Twelve dates would span throughout Germany, France and England.

The band would document the entire tour along with an entire show on October 3 for the DVD Live in Red, Eurotour 2005, released in January 2007.
