Solidifying their current lineup in 2023, HANABIE. unleashed their most recent album Reborn Superstar! that same year, snagging international acclaim for their innovative take on modern metalcore as well as taking out #24 on the Billboard Japan weekly album charts.

Channelling a sparkly disposition along with synths and plenty of heavy moments, Reborn Superstar! joined the group’s debut album, 2021’s Girl’s Reform Manifest, in cementing HANABIE. as bonafide global sensations.

Brandishing a live show as colourful as their sonic output, HANABIE. bring a charming ferocity to every performance, whether touring alongside Limp Bizkit and Galactic Empire, or at high-profile festivals including AftershockLouder Than Life Festival and Blue Ridge Rock Fest.
