Formed in Fukuoka, Japan in 2012, BRIDEAR is one of Japan’s premier hard rock/heavy metal bands has their sites set firmly on the global stage. With diverse influences from German metal legends Helloween to British prog-pop pioneers Muse, the all-female quintet combines elements of power metal, speed metal, and the melodic hooks of J-pop to create a sound unlike any of their contemporaries


After releasing their first single in 2012, BRIDEAR has been unrelenting. Performing across Japan, the band developed a dedicated following which continued to grow with their first EP Overturn the Doom, and the follow up hit single and popular music video “Light in the Dark.” International audiences soon discovered the video online creating a massive buzz and a passionate global hard rock/metal audience.


Following the 2016 release of their first full-length album BARYTE, the group continued to perform across their home country gaining a reputation for excellent musicianship and engaging live performances. In 2017, BRIDEAR performed in Europe for the first time supporting their EP HELIX.  Celebrating the 2019 album Expose Your Emotions, BRIDEAR again ventured overseas performing in London at METAL MATSURI, the first all J-metal festival outside of Japan. The stunning set won more international fans and gained press attention in their home country for the memorable performance.

In 2021, BRIDEAR joined UK-based label Setsuzoku Records. The album Bloody Bride became BRIDEAR's first official international release receiving outstanding reviews from international music media, and drawing the attention of such publications as Metal Hammer and Guitar Player magazine. In September 2021, The epic 8-minute prog masterpiece 'Brave New World Revisited' was then released as a digital single, encapsulating the band's stylistic versatility and technical wizardry. 

In the autumn of 2021, BRIDEAR became the first artist from Japan to tour internationally since the disruptions of COVID-19. Visiting England, Scotland, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, and France, the tour was a triumphant return to the international stage displaying the band's bravery and will to overcome the odds and reclaim live music in a 'Brave New World'. 


May 2022 saw the international release of the album Aegis of Athena—an 11-track opus blending traditional heavy metal, progressive arrangements, and addictive hooks. In February 2023, BRIDEAR released Aegis of London...LIVE!, the band's first live album, recorded in London on the 'Decide to Survive' European tour. The album was mixed and mastered by Fredrik Nordström (At the Gates, In Flames, Arch Enemy, Dimmu Borgir) at the famous Studio Fredman in Gothenburg, Sweden. It stands as a testament to the band's live energy and power. With ambitions at an all-time high, BRIDEAR then headed to Gothenburg to record their next album with Fredrik in March of 2024. Born Again was released worldwide via Psychomanteum Records on June 28th 2024 and has immediately been recognized as the band's crowning achievement. Receiving universal aclaim as BRIDEAR's best album, media outets around the world have declared it a masterpiece and game-changer for not just BRIDEAR, but Japanese metal.

BRIDEAR embarks on their first ever world tour in October 2024 and will continue to tour through 2025. Starting in Australia, the band will perform in more countries and cities than ever before with legs in Japan, Europe, the United Kingdom, and North America.
