From the official site:
In 1984, the newly formed Animotion began getting their first airplay from KROQ in Los Angeles, and the band soon played sold-out shows all over Hollywood. In 1985, Animotion toured with Howard Jones across the U.S. and Canada while "Obsession" was climbing the charts worldwide. Between 1985 and 1986 Animotion made several TV appearances on American Bandstand, Solid Gold and Soul Train.
In late '86 and early '87 the band went into high gear, crisscrossing the Atlantic to do videos in London, TV shows in Germany and to perform at the world famous Montreaux rock festival in Switzerland. They returned home to Southern California to play with Depeche Mode in front of 17,000 screaming fans for two sold-out shows at Irvine Meadows Amphitheater. Some time in the middle of recording their third album for Polygram Animotion mysteriously, spontaneously disbanded!
