Soon, this tour de force will hit the States like a Blues Drive Monster once again.

The July 10 show was originally slated to be held at The Sinclair in Cambridge, MA, though the event quickly sold out.
Tickets are currently available via Adult Swim’s website.
The Pillows are a Japanese alternative rock group, which originally formed in 1989. Through their 30-year history, the group has released 21 studio albums and over 35 singles. The group is best known outside of Japan for writing and performing the soundtrack to landmark OVA FLCL.
The Pillows is also scoring the soundtracks to FLCL: Progressive and FLCL: Alternative, which will hit Adult Swim this year. FLCL: Alternative will launch on the Toonami block on June 2, at midnight. The six-episode series will receive a theatrical run in Japan, hitting theaters on September 29.
Kazuya Tsurumaki (FLCL, Gunbuster) is supervising the project, with Katsuyuki Motohiro (Psycho-Pass, Atom The Beginning) working at Chief Director at Production I.G. Chikashi Kubota (One-Punch Man, Corpse Princess) is in charge of character designs for the project, while Hideto Iwai writes the scripts.
Adult Swim describes the FLCL: Progressive as:
FLCL: Progressive tells the story of 14-year-old Hidomi, her classmate Ide, and two otherworldly beings, “Jinyu” and “Haruha Raharu,” who are determined to unlock their hidden potential. Mixed up in this is an all-powerful force known as “ATOMSK,” a gorgeous vintage car… and a certain Vespa Scooter.
