BiographyEdit

After KAMIJO became the only member of LAREINE and released the solo album SCREAM, he started working on forming a new band. Ex-LAREINE member MAYU was the first one to join as he had plans to work with KAMIJO again since LAREINE went on hiatus, and roadie YOU (ex-Arege) was also invited. The lineup was completed with AYA (ex-BLue-B) on guitar in March 2001.

The first official live was announced for November 4th at Shibuya O-WEST, but the member performed together as WEREWOLF from August to October to try out their songs live.

NEW SODMY started as a regular rock band with casual outfits and little make-up, but mostly played at visual kei related events and venue.

In December 2001 they held a NEW SODMY Fair at the famous department store Marui One in Shinjuku and a Christmas concert for fanclub members at Meguro Rokumeikan.

In March 2001, right before the band first national tour "CAT WALK", MAYU left. The tour took place with the three remaining members in seven cities with a final gig at Shibuya O-EAST on April 7th. They also gave out the single A way of life as a freebie for all attendants to celebrate the band's first anniversary.

After the first album was released in June, the band announced disbandment and their final mini-tour "imagine" at Omotesando FAB (August 12th), Namba ROCKETS (August 14th) and Nagoya HEART LAND (August 15th). They also had a free acoustic live in Harajuku on August 10th.

After NEW SODMY disbanded, YOU and AYA kept working together in FREE and GLAMOROUS HONEY, while KAMIJO and MAYU regrouped LAREINE in 2003.

NEW SODMY had a one-night revival at KAMIJO's 20th Anniversary concert on December 28th 2015 (released on CD and DVD).
