The fifth full-length album from SiM is finally up for grabs on June 17 after being delayed from its initial April 15 release. It of course retains its mouthful name “THANK GOD, THERE ARE HUNDREDS OF WAYS TO KiLL ENEMiES” and will be their first album in four years! In conjunction with the release, the four-man band recently uploaded an unprecedented music video BASEBALL BAT, bringing together 25 bands in one single video, translating to over 70 participants in total!

Even if you’re not an athlete yourself, you might as well make it a game to see how many of your favorite artists you’re able to spot without pausing the video.

Just looking at the video thumbnail it’s already quite overwhelming. Some easy-to-spot figures include Tokyo Tanaka from the band MAN WITH A MISSION, he’s always wearing a wolf mask after all. Kishidan’s Show Ayanocozey also stands out quite a bit with his delinquent pompadour hair, seen around the bottom right.

Some highlights from the music video:

Commentators Masato from coldrain, and Daisuke-han from Maximum the Hormone.
