It will be a busy year for Flow, the J-rock band known for performing theme songs for popular anime titles (including Naruto, Code Geass and Eureka Seven), as they launch an album and a single this coming March. Aside from the new releases, their nationwide tour will commence in April.

The details of the album and single haven’t been revealed entirely, but the exact dates of both releases were already announced. The double A-side single is slated for a March 20 release. It includes a new track plus Flow’s rendition of CHA-LA HEAD-CHA-LA (the theme song for the upcoming Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods movie).

On the other hand, Flow’s 8th album, FLOW THE MAX!!!, will launch on the 27th on the same month.

FLOW LIVE TOUR 2013: Tour THE MAX!!! is a two-part nationwide tour: LAST MAX!!! and MAX!!! no Mukou Gawa. Tickets for the first part of the tour can be reserved through the band’s official website starting January 24.
