Originally formed in 1993 by TAKE (guitarist) and his older brother KOHSHI (vocalist), the band was named FLOW in 1998 and quickly evolved into its current line-up in 2000 after GOT’S (bassist), KEIGO (vocalist), and IWASAKI (drummer) joined the original two. After their indie debut in 2001, FLOW went on to release their first major album “SPLASH!!!”. They later released “GO!!!”, which eventually became the opening song for Naruto.
FLOW’s West Coast punk sound defines numerous anime shows, including international favorites Naruto and Eureka Seven. While catchy melodies leave plenty of hooks in listeners’ heads, the band’s empowering lyrics perfectly complement anime messages of moving forward and seizing moments.
FLOW’s new album, FLOW ANIME BEST, collects ten of their best songs and more, creating a denser experience than plain “Best of” albums. The tunes are familiar not just as chart-topping hits, but also for the power and emotion of their television tie-ins. The album releases May 10, 2011.
