After parting ways with Zazen Boys due to creative differences in early 2005, drummer Inazawa Ahito formed VOLA & THE ORIENTAL MACHINE.
Inazawa, well known for his maniac drumming in NUMBER GIRL, ZAZEN BOYS, and numerous other projects, surprised the Japanese rock scene by ditching his drumsticks and taking the position of a frontman instead. He took on the moniker VOLA and handles guitar and vocals in the band. Aoki Yutaka from downy joined him on the guitar. Nakahata Daiki from Syrup16g was also recruited to handle the drums, and Arie Yoshinori from LOST IN TIME the bass guitar.
The band released their debut, a 7-track mini-album WAITING FOR MY FOOD on January 25th, 2006. Simultaneously, they put out a live DVD called daimasの日記スペシャルの日記. The band's first full album ANDROID ～like a house mannequin～ was released April 11th, 2007.
