Japanese reggae-punk band, SiM has just released their third single, HiDE and SEEK, from their upcoming new album PLAYDEAD to be released on September 27.
HiDE and SEEK is a lively Raggamuffin tune spotlighting a fun interplay between the horn section and synthesizer melodies – a track that is sure to complement the summer madness!
The new album PLAYDEAD will contain 13 songs in total, including popular anime tie-in songs such as THE RUMBLING (Attack on Titan), UNDER THE TREE (Attack on Titan), and RED (Kengan Ashura) that are all gaining momentum globally, as well as a robust collection of songs that fuse the essence of SiM and strike new direction.
Listen to the second single from the upcoming album DO THE DANCE here, an aggressive song that is quintessential of SiM. Blending Ska with heavy and danceable riffs, the powerful and uplifting melody will trigger audiences to sing along wildly.
You can also listen to RED here, the first single from the upcoming album and the opening song for the anime Kengan Ashura Season 2.
SiM is scheduled to kick off a 27-city tour in the U.S. starting in August and a 36-date run in Japan starting in October.
The well-anticipated new album PLAYDEAD is set to bring down the entire world.

SiM – A four-member (or last time we used four-piece) reggae punk band from Shonan, Kanagawa, Japan.
“We’re a band that was born in a live house, grew up in a live house, and we’ll die in a live house.” With sold-out significant solo performances at the Nippon Budokan and Yokohama Arena as well as organized the outdoor festival “DEAD POP FESTiVAL” for 20,000 people, SiM has risen to the top of the rock scene by “breaking convention from the inside” both in name and action, headlining at large outdoor rock festivals across the country.
In 2022, the transfer of the record company to PONY CANYON was announced. The newly written song The Rumbling was released as the theme song for Attack of Titan Final Season Part 2, which won the No.1 spot on the U.S. Billboard chart 7 times in a row.
In 2023, the theme song for the anime Attack on Titan Final Season THE FINAL CHAPTERS Special 1, UNDER THE TREEwas released, which exceeded 10 million streams within 10 days, sweeping the world’s music charts.
They have successfully signed a contract with an overseas management/label, and in June, they performed their first U.K. festival, captivating an audience of more than 10,000 people. Furthermore, their sell-out headline performance in London amassed huge excitement.
In August, they will go on a 70,000-capacity tour of 27 cities in the United States, marking the start of their full-scale global expansion.
