The official website for rock band ROOKiEZ is PUNK'D announced on Tuesday that the band will be entering an indefinite hiatus after the end of their world tour on May 31.

The message mentions that there was a problem that happened during the activity to the extent that they cannot walk together anymore. They will be trying their best to finish up with the current activity, which is the world tour.

Formed in 2006, ROOKiEZ is PUNK'D had their major debut in June 2010. Their drummer was changed in 2011, and they switched record companies three times. For anime theme songs, the band performed the Durarara!! opening, the Bleach ending, Yowamushi Pedal series theme songs, and the Ao no Exorcist opening.

Just a correction, but the band performed the OP for Durarara, not the ED

Hope they return soon.

Well I'm sad. They're one my favorite bands. I have all of the songs they did for yowamushi pedal. Hope they work out well in the end. ;(

I still love it having listened to it for over 5 years, truly one of the best.

Hope they'll figure it out someday.

Really unfortunate. Had the luck to see them live last year and they knew how to put on a good show - even as the support act. They were really nice, took photos and hung out with us after the gig.

Noooooo I just saw them live last year T_T Glad I did when I got the chance...

That's a shame, they're one of my favorites.

But sometimes when it doesn't work, it just doesn't :/ and there's no need to force it

That's a shame. It's always tough to find musical partners, and it's even tougher to lose them.

Kalafina also disbanded yesterday.

Obviously one of the members became a Trump supporter.

Why can't we all get along?

That's a shame. I've never listened to their music but it is saddening to think that such an unfortunate event happened during an important world tour which caused this.
