The group was formed in 1999 releasing a demo album in the same year. In 2000 released ''Kronos'' and ''Risokyu Ryokou Guide Disc'', their first maxi-singles and later their first album in 2001, ''Doppelganger'', all signed by the indie label Limited Records. Then in 2003 Psycho le Cému signed with Nippon Crown getting a big impact in Japan and releasing two albums: ''Frontiers'' and ''Beautiful World'' and a lot of singles. But the success overpassed this country and became [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff a big hit un the USA]], mostly because of the {{Cosplay}}, being invited to big events in that country like Pacific Media Expo, Project A-kon, Katsucon and Megacon between 2004 and 2005.

'''Psycho le Cému''' (also known as PLC) is a Japanese VisualKei band born in the end of TheNineties and being most famous in the TurnOfTheMillennium. This band enters into Visual Shock classification, but different from other bands, this one uses {{Cosplay}} as their main inspiration, basing on external references of Pop Culture, like anime and video games, but also taking ideas from SuperSentai, Western Fairy Tales and [[Usefulnotes/JourneyToTheWest a classic in Asian literature]].

[[PyrrhicVictory But the fame has a price]]. In 2005, Daishi was found guilty of being positive for methamphetamine and [[DrugsAreBad was arrested by Kanagawa police]] and jailed for a year and half. The news was so shocking in Japan that all PLC albums and merchandising were confiscated and the group went into a hiatus until Daishi went out of the jail. After that, in 2006 the group recorded for a last time releasing their last album, ''Epilogue'', and compiled the GreatestHitsAlbum ''Psycho le Cému Best''. Then, the group had a breakup and all their members went for their side projects "Dacco" (YURA-sama and Lida), "Mix Speakers Inc." (Aya and Seek) and Daishi having a solo carrer.

TheEndOrIsIt Well, certainly not. In 2009, Psycho le Cému reunited again with new costumes and a tour celebrating the tenth anniversary of the creation of the group with a concert tour called ''Psycho le Cému 10th Anniversary - Legend of Sword''. And again they did it in 2014 with the 15th anniversary. But this time the group reunited for real, making more costumes, more song and the first album since the last one they did in 2006: ''NOW AND THEN ~THE WORLD~'', released in August 2016 in their new label, noneless than [[Creator/WarnerBrosRecords Warner Music Japan]]. And the Adventure Continues...
