Visual-kei band Plastic Tree delivered some good news that vocalist Ryutaro Arimura has completely recovered from Guillain-Barré syndrome and will be resuming activities, including the band’s nationwide tour that starts this March.

Last month, Plastic Tree canceled two concerts after Arimura was diagnosed with the disorder. Guillain-Barré syndrome, which affects the nervous system and can lead to paralysis, is incurable but highly treatable. Fortunately, Arimura was diagnosed while the disorder was still in an early stage and received treatment right away.

Along with the news of Arimura’s return, it was revealed that Plastic Tree will release a new album titled “ammonite” on April 6, which will be their first one since December 2009. The band is currently recording for the album, which is planned to have a total of 12 tracks. The limited edition of the album will come with a DVD that reportedly includes the music video for their song “13th Friday” and some off-shot footage.

Plastic Tree’s tour will consist of 21 shows, starting on March 14 at Akasaka BLITZ in Tokyo.
