Due`le Quartz biography

Dué le quartz (デュールクォーツ) was a Japanese visual kei rock band that formed in December 1998 and signed to PS Company, a sub-division of Free-Will. In December of 1998, Sakito and Ken formed Dué le quartz and played their first live on February 14, 1999. They recruited bassist Kikasa somewhere in between, then officially added KAZUKI to the mix on March 22 of that year. Ken left the band in May due to musical differences, leaving the guitarist gap to be filled by Miyavi on June 29, 1999 and complete the band's final lineup. The band opened a fanclub on August 1, 2000 that was called "Baby Merry". They made it big quickly, landing their first one-man live on August 21, 2000 at Shibuya ON AIR WEST. Their first full one-man tour kicked off on May 16, 2001, and their second began on December 4, 2001. The band landed the feature spot in indie publication Expect Rush II, released in March 2002. Their clothing and music style in the beginning was more of the kotekote visual kei style than pure visual kei, but in the end their dressing seemed to calm down - less PVC, lace, and anything that showed more than a few inches of bare skin. They released a total of 2 demos, 4 maxi-singles, 3 mini-albums, one full album (which was their greatest hits compilation) and few rare CDs, including a collaboration single with Kagrra, and Ash, that you could only buy from their lives. Dué le quartz disbanded in 2002, and they played their last live on September 22, 2002 at Akasaka BLITZ. They disbanded because Kikasa, their bassist, had plans to leave the band. Later Sakito and Kikasa reunited to form the band 【FIGURe;】 (with drummer KAZUKI occasionally providing session work) and guitarist Miyabi changed his name to 雅-miyavi- and started a solo career.
