LoVendoЯ (2013)

LoVendoЯ was formed in 2012 after producer Tsunku and agency Up Front held an audition to find a vocalist and guitar players, at the same time it was announced that 6th generation Morning Musume member Tanaka Reina would also be a vocalist in the band. Reina later announced her graduation from Morning Musume and in November of 2012 the winners of the audition were revealed during Morning Musume's concert tour, where they also set February 2013 as the starting date for official band activities.

Following the announcement fans were given the opportunity to help name the band by submitting their ideas to a special e-mail address. After two months, on February 3, 2013, the band name was revealed to be "LoVendoЯ" and their first national tour was announced to start on March 27, 2013.

LoVendoЯ, while on their own tour, also performed as the opening act for Morning Musume during their Spring 2013 tour. Their first release was announced for May 22nd, to be an Indies Mini-Album, titled "LoVendoЯ Cover The Rock", featuring cover songs. In early July 2013 it was announced that the band would be performing overseas for the first time at the J-POP SUMMIT Festival in San Francisco, California later that month.

The band's major debut, to take place on July 1, 2015, was announced at the final performance of the "LoVendoЯ LIVE TOUR 2014-15 ~Anata no Heart wo Itadakimasu~" live tour on March 5, 2015. Guitarist Uozumi Yuki announced her graduation from the group during their LIVE TOUR 2016 ~POWEЯ~ show on July 23, 2016, stating that she would be leaving the group at the end of the tour, while expressing her intentions to study abroad, continue learning music, and to perform with many different artists in the future.

On February 27, 2019, it was announced that Okada Marina decided to graduate the group to focus on her devotion to fishing.

On June 28, 2019, it was announced that the group would officially suspend activities at the end of July, and that Miyazawa Marin's exclusive contract with Up Front would also be ending the same month.
