Members Yura-SAMA, seek, and AYA also had devoted fans. Psycho le Cemu went major in 2002. The demands of a major label began to drain the members, both physically and creatively. Constantly on tour or recording, including two wildly successful U.S. tours, and having to change their concepts several times a year, Psycho le Cemu struggled to hold onto their original vision.
In late 2004, the members decided to pursue side projects as a temporary break. Daishi released a single, Jitsuroku Shonen Hanzai Kikagaku. During this time, Daishi was arrested for violating the Stimulant control law, eventually receiving a suspended sentence. Having briefly used the drugs as a teenager, the internal stresses mentioned above contributed to his relapse.
Since then, Daishi has been even more fiercely devoted to his music and his fans, and has begun a pure diet which includes no alcohol. Currently he is a solo artist. His debut album, GOD JAPANESE MONSTER, contains highly personal lyrics and has an honest, raw quality that defies the nature of some of his work with Psycho le Cemu as majors.
