BridearHailing from the city of Fukuoka, BRIDEAR was formed in November 2011 by vocalist KIMI, guitarist MITSURU and bassist HARU. Support drummer KAI became an official member in February 2012, followed by second guitarist Misa in April. That same month, BRIDEAR made their live debut at Fukuoka’s Spiral Factory.
On August 1st, the band ventured outside Fukuoka for the first time, playing at nonLinear Metal DynamiX 2012-Vol.7 in Nagoya. First demo Pray / Another name was released on August 8th, followed by debut single Thread Of The Light / Roulette on March 17th, 2013.
Meanwhile, the girls kept up a busy touring schedule, playing lives across Japan. These included an appearance at WOMEN’S POWER Vol.54 in Osaka in March, and as the opening act at Yama-B's band AXBITES’s tenth anniversary live in May. BRIDEAR rounded off a hectic 2013 with the release of their debut mini album Overturn The Doom on December 18th, along with a one-man live at Tokyo’s Kichijoji CRESCENDO on December 26th.
In February 2014, BRIDEAR sponsored their first live event BRIDEAR Presents Edge Of Infinity -Vol.1-, held at Fukuoka’s BEAT STATION. On March 9th, the band opened for Yousei Teikoku at the male-only event GEGENANGRIFF: zweit. Then in July, the girls returned once more to BEAT STATION for a two-man live with LIGHT BRINGER, part of the latter’s Lovely Music Tour 2014 ~Reprise The Infinite Fantasy~. On October 22nd, BRIDEAR released their second single Light In The Dark / NO SALVATION.
Three years on, BRIDEAR’s prospects are looking brighter than ever. The band continues to tour relentlessly, and looks primed to soon take their place amongst the “girls’ metal” elite.
