The adventure starts in 2002, when a bunch of schoolmates decided to play their own music. The name HANA B derives from their fascination of Japanese director Takeshi Kitano's movie with the same name. In this masterpiece the band recognized the same poetic expressionism that was prominent in their own music: the clash between harmony and rage, sweetness and violence, all in the same breathe.

At the beginning of 2008, the band decided to record new material in London’s Dairy Studio, with producer James Loughrey (My Vitriol, Dave Gahan, Page & Plant, Queen) and in collaboration with the Italian violinist and producer Davide Rossi (The Verve, Goldfrapp, Royksopp, Alicia Keys), whom is also well known for all the strings arrangements in Coldplay’s three Grammy Award-winning album “Viva la Vida”. This brought a new dynamic to the sound and the team was finally ready to record their first English spoken album. The production of the album starts in 2009 in London (Olympic Studio, Britannia Row Studios) and ends in New York’s Cutting Room Studios with James Loughrey. The mastering was done at Sterling Sound by Greg Calbi (Interpol, Bruce Springsteen, Sonic Youth, MGMT etc).
