Dolly is a Japanese visual kei rock band formed in 2005. They are signed to the Marder Suitcase label.

History[edit]

Dolly was formed in 2005 with an original lineup of Mitsu, Masa, Yuina, Hachi and Takashi Oshoudani(support member). The played their first concert in October 2005 at Takadanobaba Area and released their first single, "Screen of Indoors" shortly after as a DVD single.

In 2006, their first CD single, "Pumpkin Carriage Parade", was released on January 13. In March, they released another single, "2 Ripped Sweets", followed shortly by Takashi's departure. Tsuguki quickly replaced Takashi and Dolly released their first EP, Cynical Closet, on July 26. In November they began a three-single release campaign with Ussetsu Drop, Suisai Palette, and Shinshoku Rosetta, all bearing the "Tricolor Opera" title.

Dolly's first single of 2007, "Karmaison", appeared in stores in June. In September, they released their first full album Jewel's Drip containing previously released singles, as well as eight new tracks. After a short break, due to Mitsu's health problems and brief hospital stay, Dolly continued their "Jewel's Drip Parade" tour.

In 2008, Dolly released "Closet Letter", and "Juliet" singles as well the Mini Album "HeavenwOrd", as part of their "5 Coaster Cabaret" Concept, and the only live distributed single "Hana Uta" and the free distributed single "Shikisai Graduation" this single is the bonus track for the mini album, in December they went to a major label, and release the album "Primary, Premium Best" which contains "Strawberry in the Scalp", "Pumpkin Carriage Parade" and other singles and b-sides, and a new song as a bonus track "Usagi Uta".

On February 9, Dolly debuted with a single and a DVD.

Yuina left the group because he was sick and the rest of the members thought that this was the best solution.
