The Japanese rock band High and Mighty Color will disband after the release of its next single, "Re:ache," on August 11. The band members cited differences in their attitudes toward music and future goals as the reason for the breakup.
The Okinawan group performed theme songs for Bleach, Mobile Suit Gundam Seed Destiny, Darker than Black, and Jyūshin Enbu - Hero Tales. High and Mighty Color also contributed to the soundtracks of the Sengoku Basara 2 and Shinobido Imashime games as well as the tribute album for the live-action Death Note: The Last Name film. In 2008 the original vocalist Maki left the band and in 2009 the band brought on vocalist Halca.
High and Mighty Color performed at Sakura-Con in Seattle in April.
