√eight was formed by guitarist Nachi(ex-WERKMARE) and vocalist Kyotaro(ex-Volark) in 2004, who were soon joined by bassist Mukku(also ex-WERKMARE) and drummer Mitsuru(ex-ArcAdiA). Soon after the formation they released two Demo-CDs, followed by another Demo-CD in 2005 as well as several DVDs and contributions to V.A.-releases, most of these either independently released or on Nachi’s Relative+Heart label.

In 2006 they released their first album, Illational, which was co-produced by Kenzi of ∀NTI FEMINISM. At the end of the year they released two more DVDs which showed their tour finals in Sapporo. In 2007 the band was joined by guitarist Ryo(ex-SINCE1889), and the name of the band was changed to THE EIGHT. They spoke of releasing a new album in late 2007, but this was never realised due to vocalist Kyotaro leaving the band in December to join Black:List. In December 2008, the band Black:List disbanded, and vocalist Kyotaro has decided to retire from music entirely due to family issues.

Shortly after vocalist Kyotaro’s leave, guitarist Ryo also left the band. In august of 2008, female vocalist U(ex-Low Head Machine) joined the band. As of June of 2009, drummer Mitsuru has temporarily left the band due to injuries.THE EIGHT will be using a support drummer, JUN, for the time being.

So far their discography consists of: 3 demo maxi-singles, 5 live distributed singles, one full album, one coupling album (together with Celia’xeno and 昭和愚裸魅會), 6 VA-releases, 4 live DVDs, 3 PV DVDs and 6 VA-DVDs.
