High-spin states of 155Gd were populated by using the 154Sm($\alpha$,3n$\gamma$)155Gd reaction at $E_{\alpha}$ = 33 MeV. $\gamma-\gamma$ coincidence, $E_{\gamma}$ singles, excitation function, and the DCO ratios were measured. we have identified three intermediate bands with $\Delta I = 2$ feeding the positive yrast band. The bands are interpreted as such candidate bands that are mixed with the negative-parity ground state band. This observation can provide a plausible explanation for unusually large population of the positive-parity yrast band observed in a recent Coulomb excitation.
