QUEEN BEE a four-piece band formed in 2009 at Kobe by AVU (Vo), YASHI (Ba), RURI (Dr) and HIBARI (Gt). The band first made headlines when they were chosen to play on the extremely selective "ROOKIE A GO-GO" stage at Japan's largest outdoor music festival, FUJI ROCK FESTIVAL. Singing in both low and high pitch, the extremely unique main vocal along with the band’s creative and eccentric performance made them the talk of the music scene before they were even debuted.

The band signed with the major record label, Sony Music Associated Records in 2011 by releasing their first debut album “Peacock.” They successfully drew attention to the music industry when their song “DESCO” was used as the theme song for “Moteki”, a highly rated movie in Japan. The band was also cast in the movie and had made their first appearance on the big screen. In 2012, the band released their 2nd album “Snake Princess.” Since then they have become active regulars at Japan’s major festivals, including repeated appearances at FUJI ROCK FESTIVAL, Summer Sonic and many more.

In 2013 the band went into a brief hiatus due to the departure of the guitarist because of health issue. The band came back in 2014 and released a full new album “Kirei.”
In 2016, main vocal AVU started a side project Gokumontoikka and released a smash hit split single “Kinsei/Shibou Yugi.” Summer of 2016, the band performed overseas for the first time at “World Music Day” Festival in Paris.

After releasing their 5th album “Q” in April 2017, the band kicked off to a sold-out national tour that included 15 shows. Later that year, the band performed in the musical production of “ROCKY HORROR SHOW (Jap ver.)” featuring AVU as one of the main cast. In 2018, QUEEN BEE released a new single “HALF” which is the theme song of the highly anticipated anime “Tokyo Ghoul:re“ that was premiered in Spring 2018.

In 2019, they released a new single “Fire” which is the theme song for the anime “Dororo” (created by Osamu Tezuka) that was premiered in January 2019. In March, the band made their first appearance at one of the most famous music festival in Taiwan, “MEGAPORT FESTVIAL 2019.” It was full house despite their first performance in Taiwan.

In May, the band released a brand new full album “Ten.” The lead track of the album “Holy war” is the theme song for the move “Sadako,” and “Introduction” is the theme song for the live-action movie "Tokyo Ghoul【S】."

Celebrating the band’s 10 year anniversary, QUEEN BEE will be kicking off a national tour with approximately 20,000 fans. In August, main vocal AVU was cast in the Japanese Broadway Musical “HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH” as Yitzhak.
