History
Flow is a five-piece Japanese rock band made up of two vocalists, a drummer, a bassist and a guitarist. The group's base was created in 1993 when brothers Kōshi (elder: vocals) and Take (younger: guitar) began playing together. They formed Flow in 1998, and were eventually joined by Keigo (vocals), Gotō (bass) and Iwasaki (drums; joined in 2000). In 2001, the band released its first maxi single, "Flow #0". The group then released two mini-albums within the same year, both of which took nationwide indie charts by storm. "Okuru Kotoba", Flow's first cover single, was released in January 2003. It remained on the Oricon indie chart for seven consecutive weeks and also hit an impressive #6 on the overall singles chart. In the spring of that year, their first full-scale album Splash!!! debuted at #2. In July 2003, Flow released the single "Blaster" on a major label, Ki/oon Records. In April 2004, they released "Go!!!", which stayed on the Oricon Top 10 Chart for three weeks. In May 2004, Flow released their first major album Game.

A string of singles followed and in July 2005 the band released its third album, Golden Coast. Since the release of Golden Coast, Flow has released two singles with new A-sides, but one of these ("Around the World/Kandata") was a double A-side release. "Colors" is the band's fourth single. The songs "Go!!!" and "Re:member" both served as opening themes to the anime series Naruto. "Days" was the first opening for Bones' Eureka Seven anime, and "Realize" was the opening for the PlayStation 2 video games based on the same series. Flow performed live in America for the first time in Dallas, Texas on September 2, 2006 at Anime Fest which was held at the Hyatt Hotel and Convention center in downtown Dallas. Flow performed "Colors" in 2006, the first opening for Sunrise's original series, Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion. Their song "Answer" is the first opening theme for the live action Japanese drama Tantei Gakuen Q. They performed "Night Parade" with the hip-hop band Home Made Kazoku. In February 2008, they released a new single entitled "Arigatō", followed by Persona -trinity soul-'s new opening, "Word of the voice" in June 2008. They performed Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2's second opening theme "World End" released in 2008. In 2009, the band performed "Sign", the sixth opening for Naruto Shippuden. The band released a B-side compilation album on November 4, 2009.

They used to be one of my favorite bands back then but I kinda started to get bored of them from 2007 onwards. So yea I stopped listening after that. Their older songs were way better.

Wahhhh I love this band ^o^
I had the lucky opportunity to watch them at AFA this year, which they were amazing in performing. Me and my friend loved singing along to fighting dreamers Happy
In the end when they were doing their encore, the drummer threw his sticks into the audience and this kid one row in front of me caught it.. I was so close to catching it Onion Depress

Crossing my fingers that they'll come to my city on either Canadian date but it seems unlikely. I think it's a fair assumption to say they'll be stopping at either Edmonton's or Montreal's anime convention that runs in early August.

Also, revival of FLOW thread? They were one of my favourite j-rock bands before I stumbled upon SCANDAL. Great energy and often hilarious (as often seen by their PVs).

I found that Flow can be really great for when you are doing some creative design work, they have the right tempo and the songs "flow" nicely into each other. I once spent like 50 hours or so (in the span of  I think 2 weeks) in google Sketchup creating a model for a casecon (computer case built from scratch, in my case made from opaque black mirror and lime green acrylic glass) and Flow was great motivation to work for hours and hours without needing a pause. Unfortunately I did not have the necessary funds to actually build what I had designed but it was a lot of fun still, no regrets.

Looks like I was correct in my guess of where FLOW would perform in Canada. Too bad it's nowhere near where I live. Literally stuck in the middle. :<
