FLOW recently announced that they will release their 11th studio album TRIBALYTHM on April 10, their first album in three years. In the run up to the new record, the five-piece Japanese rock band has revealed the album’s CD cover.
“Tribal” and “rhythm” are key themes in the album’s portmanteau title. The CD cover artwork reflects that, taking on a colourful tribal design.
First Press Limited Edition copies of the album are coupled with a Blu-ray featuring FLOW’s entire concert at their recent Nippon Budokan concert. It also includes a documentary of the day, as well as a separate documentary taken during their 2018 Latin America Tour, a cooking competition of Brazilian cuisine, and another of world beer. The entire run-time is 200 minutes making this a must-have for hardcore fans of FLOW.
A trailer was also released on YouTube containing select footage of the Blu-ray.
Pre-sale tickets for FLOW’s 2019 TRIBALYRHM Tour are available with first press copies of both the album’s Limited and Regular editions.
An exclusive track-by-track listen with live commentary by the band members will also be carried out. The first will be for official members of the FLOW “26ers” fan club where it will be available every day from 21:00 to midnight (JST) from March 12 to 25. The second early listen will be posted on the band’s official homepage at the same time from March 26 to April 8―but this time it will be one new track shown per day.
The band are also carrying out a Twitter campaign. Fans can enter by posting the hashtag #トライバリズム along with their thoughts on the album to be entered for a chance to win a signed poster. The number of winners will also increase as the number of posts of people participating increases.
