They were with avex and released their two latest singles with them shortly before their break-up in 2003.

They sent a demonstration tape to a record company (Motherland) in 2000, and their talents were noticed. As a result, Kids Alive debuted in February 2001 with a single entitled ame or Rain, the members being only mere 17 years old and were still in high school then. That comes as no surprise that Kids Alive was active in school festival performances. Starting at 2nd Stage, they switched their company to Avex. They have released eight singles and one album.

One of their most famous songs being Bokura no Bouken, the first ED for Hikaru no GO and as their fourth single. Its opening melody was sampled by German rapper Kool Savas for his Song Tot oder Lebendig.

The band has not come out with anything recently, one rumor being that it is because they may be busy with college.
