Flumpool to hold two-day live at Nippon Budokan

Flumpool will be holding a 2-day live at Nippon Budokan on October 1 and 2.

This was announced during the annual Earth Day live, ‘TOKYO FM & JFN present EARTH×HEART LIVE 2013‘, on April 17 at NHK Hall. The upcoming concert will be an especially special one for the band since October 1 marks their 5th anniversary.

They commented, “Right after our debut, amidst the suddenly changing environment, this was the first place where we felt we grabbed a hold of something. We want to stand at that place again at this timing. We also want to create a live that condenses everything that shined throughout these past 5 years.”

Additionally, Flumpool will release a new single (currently untitled) in early summer. More details will be announced at a later date.

Two flumpool members form new unit

Kameda Seiji, Yamamura Ryuta (Vo / flumpool), Sakai Kazuki (G/ flumpool), Sugimoto Yuji (Vo, Piano / WEAVER), and Tamada Tom (Dr / 100s) have formed a unit called 'THE TURTLES JAPAN' for a limited time.

The idea of this new unit began when flumpool's Yamamura and Sakai, who celebrated the 5th anniversary of their debut, sought after new inspirations. The two suggested they form a unit to Kameda, who agreed willingly. In addition, Yamamura and Sakai have previously appeared on Kameda's radio program and held a session live together. This is said to be another reason why they decided to form the unit.

The unit name comes from the American rock band The Turtles. Just like The Turtles' representative song "Happy Together", the new unit hopes to "walk together with the listeners through music".

THE TURTLES JAPAN will perform for the very first time at 'MBS Oto Matsuri 2014' which will be held from October 10 to the 12 at Osaka-jo Hall. They are expected to perform some of their original songs during this live.

Heh, I only know one Flumpool song, which they sang for the live-action movie adaptation of MW, but they seem like a decent group.
