THE SOUND BEE HD was formed in 2000 by Daisuke, the lead vocalist of Media Youth (the band behind Lupin III: Dead or Alive’s ending theme song “Damage no Amai Wana”). They released their first E.P. “Dol-Bee6″ via famous Japanese record label, Avex, but later decided to become an independent band. In 2007, the band saw a major shake-up in the line-up with Daisuke becoming the only founding member to remain in the band. He later recruited bassist You, and guitarist Tak from the band Calmando Qual, and set out for a fresh start for the band. In 2010 they signed with independent visual kei label Starwave Records and released their third full album, “Hachi”, accompanied by vast changes in their musical style and visual image achieved through the concept of a fusion of heavy rock and industrial elements with a Japanese taste. Since then they have released 4 E.P.’s, including their most recent release, “Sou”.
