Do As Infinity (ドゥ・アズ・インフィニティ, Du Azu Infiniti?) was a popular Japanese band which debuted on September 29, 1999 with the release of their first single, Tangerine Dream. Their name is sometimes abbreviated as D.A.I., revealing that Do As Infinity was named after the band's guitarist and composer, Dai Nagao.

With the release of their A-side compilation album Do the A side, Do As Infinity disbanded on September 29, 2005, after a career which spanned six years, six albums, twenty singles, seven compilation albums and eight live DVDs.

i will upload some of their songs later n you can find them in the download section

Do As Infinity is and still is one of my favorite japanese rock band of all time

love and peace......

and here my personal message to them:

D - Do as infinity, i miss you
O - On your six years journey of making music, you really make my life colorful

A - All your songs are a reflection of my life and who i am
S - Sad and heart broken that you are no longer making music together

I - I will always cherish the memories that you gave me
N - No matter the place or time
F - Forever you will always be in my heart
I - I will never forget you and your songs
N - No band or singer can replace the huge hole that u left in the music industry now that u parted ways
I - I wish each of you best of luck and success
T - Tomiko Van, Dai Nagao and Ryo Owatari,
Y - You guys will never be forgotten by me cause you all are already part of me and i dare to say that DAI is
and still is the best band in the world...(I love you guys)

Ei! I'm so into DAI works recently. Can anyone send me reading materials (links) about DAI, particularly the reasons (or even rumors) about the band's breakup?
