24.August.2018 | ANIME&GAME / MUSIC

FLOW have released the music video for their new song Break it down which features on their forthcoming double A-side single Neiiro / Break it down set for release on August 29

 

 

This live lyric video features exciting footage from the band’s performance at Yokohama Arena on July 8 for JUMP MUSIC FESTA, an event celebrating the 50th anniversary of Weekly Shonen Jump. The song hails as the biggest hard rock song the band has produced to date. It cannot be categorised into one music genre and synchronises the band’s vigour of today with a strong message.

The song will be used as the theme song for the upcoming PC browser game Naruto x Boruto Borutical Generations. It marks the seventh track FLOW have provided for the Naruto franchise and has the same level of quality as those previous songs which have become classics amongst the anime community. It is the ultimate FLOW x Naruto x Boruto collaboration.

 

Full details regarding the game have yet to be announced.

 

It has also been announced that FLOW will make a return to the Nippon Budokan for a solo concert for the first time in 10 years on January 30, 2019. The first wave of arena tickets and standing tickets that were released have already sold out. Regular tickets and tickets that come with a bonus are now available via Lawson Tickets.

 

The concert is titled “FLOW LIVE BEST 2019 in Nippon Budokan ~Kami Matsuri~” and will be a huge celebration of FLOW’s music career.

Additionally, to celebrate the release of the single and the Nippon Budokan concert, FLOW will host a special stream on Facebook, Twitter, Nico Nico and LINE LIVE on August 26. They will perform live, give the first unveiling of the full music video of their new single, take phone calls, show footage of their first solo performance at the Nippon Budokan 10 years ago back in 2008, and more.

First press copies are coupled with a DVD featuring the music video, as well as a bonus live track. The single is now available on major music download and streaming services ahead of the physical CD’s release.

     

    Speaking about the music video, director Matajiro Kazeno commented: “The dreams and straight-forward emotions of your teens are about moving forward while wrapped in friendships and love and experiencing both happy and sad things. That’s the kind of music video we made, which was shot at Mirokunosato in Tadanoumicho at the Seto Inland Sea of Hiroshima Prefecture. Please enjoy Nanoka Hara’s refreshing and lively acting, which is like the rolling winds, together with miwa’s singing.”
