All-female rock band RAISE A SUILEN from the franchise “BanG Dream!” has announced a new song REIGNING, specifically written for the stage play “We are RAISE A SUILEN -BanG Dream! The Stage-“, a play that tells the origin story of the band. REIGNING will also join the first album ERA which is to be released on August 19, compiling the band’s best work so far and even brings a new song SOUL SOLDIER.

The announcement for REIGNING was made earlier today on RAISE A SUILEN’s third day of live streaming and quickly after, its official Japanese YouTube channel uploaded the same promotion video that was just streamed. This is the second and latest promotion video we’ve received of the stage play.

The music playing in the background gives you a sneak peek of what to expect of REIGNING, and the new artwork is the illustration key visual for the stage play, opposed to the live-action visual that was previously revealed.

The live stream event was not only in conjunction with the stage play and the album ERA, but mainly celebrated RAISE A SUILEN’s introduction to the BanG Dream! mobile rhythm game (the Japanese version). During the stream, their hashtag “#ガルパRAS登場記念DAY3” (Commemorating RAS’ introduction to Girls Band Party! DAY3) quickly made its way as the top 1 trending hashtag in Japan.

Unfortunately, the stage play itself which was previously scheduled for July with nine performances has been postponed due to the current coronavirus pandemic. As of writing, we don’t know exactly when the new dates will be unveiled.


If you’re not familiar with the BanG Dream! mixed-media franchise, they’re active in fields such as anime, games, manga, music, and more. RAISE A SUILEN is just one of the bands from BanG Dream!, but unlike some of them, RAISE A SUILEN is an actual real band and not a fictional one. They were tentatively called “THE THIRD (仮)”—as they were the third real band from BanG Dream!—and later received the official name RAISE A SUILEN. Their purpose was initially to support the vocalists of the other fictional bands, those without members who could play their instruments.

RAISE A SUILEN members:

  • Vocals: LAYER (Raychell)
  • Guitar: LOCK (Kohara Riko)
  • Drums: MASKING (Natsume)
  • Keyboard: PAREO (Kurachi Reo)
  • DJ: CHU² (Tsumugi Risa)
