Lindberg is a Japanese Pop rock/rock band that was active from 1989 to 2002 and again in 2009. After another hiatus it is active once again, announced in a New Year's announcement under the title "Re:LINDBERG".

History[edit]

Lindberg typically appealed to the junior high to early high school crowd, and was unique in that in the time of its inception in 1989, few Japanese "rock" bands had female members, much less a female lead singer. The band retired in 2002 following the marriage of the lead singer, Watase Maki, to the lead guitarist Hirakawa Tatsuya; rounding out the band were bassist Kawazoe Tomohisa and drummer Koyanagi "Cherry" Masanori.

Kawazoe Tomohisa, one of the band's musicians, became a founding member of another Japanese female-fronted Pop/Rock band, Ai+Band, in 2003.

Lindberg reunited in 2009 and released their twentieth anniversary album Lindberg XX in April 2009 through their new label Avex Trax, featuring new songs and re-recordings of their popular hits. Also in 2009, Lindberg members Maki Watase and Tatsuya Hirakawa began writing and producing music for Jurian Beat Crisis, a Japanese singer that debuted that year.[1]
