HYDE(Guitar & Vocals)
Vocalist of L'Arc~en~Ciel, HYDE has also been working on other projects vigorously since his solo debut in 2001. His first solo album "Roentgen" (X-ray in German), released in 2002, contained 3 singles, "Evergreen", "Angel's Tale", and "Shallow Sleep". In 2003, HYDE made his first major movie acting debut in the film Moon Child, co-staring Japanese singer Gackt. Later that year he also released his 4th and 5th solo singles, "Hello", and "Horizon", both from the December released "666" album. 2004 introduced HYDE's first solo tour for the "666" album, an English version of the "Roentgen" album, as well as the DVD "Roentgen Stories." In 2005 he composed "Glamorous Sky", the theme song for the breakout success movie "NANA", while also releasing his 6th single "Countdown." Both the single "COUNTDOWN"、and the 7th single "SEASON'S CALL", released early in 2006, topped the Japanese charts. In April 2006, following to the release of his 3rd album "FAITH"、HYDE launched his second nationwide solo tour "HYDE TOUR 2006 FAITH", which sold out instantly. In the same year he also performed in 4 shows on the West Coast of the US, which also sold out instantly. At the close of 2006 HYDE rejoined his L'Arc~en~Ciel band mates for a few 15th Anniversary performances. In 2007 HYDE was back in the studio with L'Arc~en~Ciel recording, then touring all over Japan, finishing the year with large arena shows in Japan's biggest cities. So far this year, HYDE has been continuing his work with L'Arc~en~Ciel, while working with K.A.Z on VAMPS.

K.A.Z(Guitar)
K.A.Z formed the band "Oblivion Dust" in '96 and debuted in '97 with 3 singles, "Sucker", "Numb", and "Falling", off the album "looking for Elvis" released the same year. In 1998, K.A.Z joined the band "Hide with Spread Beaver", releasing 2 singles, "Rocket Dive", and "Pink Spider." 1998 also saw the release of 2 more Oblivion Dust singles, "Therapy", and "Trust", from their album "Misery Days." In 1999 K.A.Z and Oblivion Dust released 4 more singles, "Blurred", "You", "Goodbye", "Crazy", and a music video for the song "Overdose", all from the album, "Reborn." 2000 saw a quick reunion with Hide with Spread Beaver, another single, "Designer Fetus", and album "Butterfly Head" with Oblivion Dust. The next year, Oblivion Dust released their Best Of album, "Radio Songs", but the group disbanded. Also in 2001 K.A.Z started work with Tetsu from L'Arc~en~Ciel on his solo project TETSU69. In 2002, he formed the rock unit Spin Aqua with vocalist/model/actress Anna Tsuchiya, producing three singles and one album, "Pisces". Soon after K.A.Z started to co-write and co-produce songs with HYDE. For HYDE's 3rd solo album "FAITH", he wrote 5 songs including the single "SEASON'S CALL" and co-produced all songs. K.A.Z then accompanied HYDE on his "Faith" tour as guitarist throughout the summer and fall of 2006. In 2007 K.A.Z and 2 of the 3 previous member of Oblivion Dust decided to get back together, spending most of the year writing and recording their January 2008 self-titled release, "Oblivion Dust." Early this year, Oblivion Dust had a short tour to signify their reformation, and while still actively working with Oblivion Dust as well as various other projects, K.A.Z and HYDE decided to start VAMPS.
