LM.C is a Japanese visual kei band, playing a hybrid of rock and electronic pop (branded New Century Electrock by the band), that consists of two members.
LM.C was founded by maya, a support guitarist for musician Miyavi in the support band Ishihara Gundan (Ishihara being Miyavi's real last name, Gundan means 'brigade' or 'army' in Japanese) and a guitarist in his own band, The Sinners. While still with Miyavi, maya and other support members also played live shows as LM.C. Later they were joined by Aiji of Pierrot.
After maya quit Miyavi's band and Aiji's band Pierrot disbanded, LM.C made their major label debut in October 2006, releasing two singles, "Trailers (Gold)" and "Trailers (Silver).
As 2007 began, the group came out with a third single, "Oh My Juliet", which was the 2nd ending theme for the Red Garden anime. On March 7, they released their first EP, "Glitter Loud Box".
They released their fourth single, "BOYS & GIRLS" in June 2007, featured as the 2nd opening theme for the anime Reborn!
Their fifth single, "Liar Liar/Sentimental Piggy Romance," saw an October 2007 release, while their sixth single, "Bell the Cat", was released in December of the same year.
In 2008, LM.C released "John", in the winter, and "88", another opening theme for the Reborn! anime, in the summer. LM.C then debuted in North America, performing at Anime Expo's "Battle of the Bands" on 3 July 2008, followed by a concert at the Crash Mansion in Los Angeles, California on 5 July.
