SiM, the powerhouse metal rockers renowned worldwide, unleash their long-awaited album PLAYDEAD on September 24. This announcement brings forth a wave of thrilling revelations, including expansive tours and a glimpse of their upcoming album with their pulse-pounding new single RED.

With a new album looming on the horizon, and an upcoming tour that hints at an international appearance, let’s take a look at SiM’s titanic revelations!

The blood-stained world of RED

SiM’s RED, released on July 14, serves as the opening theme for the highly anticipated second season of the anime KENGAN ASURA, premiering on Netflix in September.

This fast-paced and dynamic song perfectly captures the spirit of the adrenaline-fueled battles depicted in the anime. With its irresistible rhythm and powerful chorus, RED is destined to become an anthemic favorite!

Vocalist MAH comments on the new release:

The blood that flows is all the same, โ€œredโ€. Of course, there are obviously differences in race, beliefs, etc, but instead of forcing to accept or to push this fact, the song is about first and foremost, the need to face yourself. Thank you for choosing this as the theme song!

The full version of RED is available to stream worldwide, but you can catch a teaser from the anime below:
