You can check out the music video to the track Hanashiteageru (I’ll Let You Go), which features BE, MEANA, and CHAD cutting their hair short and revealing an entirely new look. “We donated our trademark black hair to children who are fighting against cancer,” says the band. “It took us two years to prepare our hair to the right length, and it takes around 20 people to donate their hair to create one wig. So we feel this is an important opportunity to spread about hair donation.”
