The band consists of members Nobuki Akiyama (vocal & guitar), Kohei Kamoto (drums), Yotaro Kachi (bass), and Yosuke Shimonaka (guitar), and formed in 2012 when they were students in Meiji Gakuin University.  They’d all been members of high school bands and were keen to exercise their musical creativity. Starting out as a bassless 3-piece, they played their first few gigs for fun, and after realising how well received they were, DYGL was formed.

DYGL self released their first EP in 2015, EP #1, followed by Don’t Know Where It Is in 2016 and later that year produced 2 new songs, releasing a 7-inch record Waste of Timemixed, recorded and mastered by Aaron Dobos (Avalanches) Their touring schedule has taken them to Taiwan, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Korea, and China, culminating in a total of 34 concerts in 32 cities.
