Since then the band has been riding a wave of relative success. Its latest release was the 13th single and is a cover of T.M. Revolution's early single, called "Hot Limit". The visual style of both the music video and the promotional images is meant to mimic that of the original. On July 1st, 2008, it was announced that Maki was married to DREAMS COME TRUE singer Masato Nakamura on June 22nd, 2008 and would be leaving the band by the end of 2008.
