SiM reveals new single ‘Do The Dance’ ahead of US tour
In a press release shared on July 27, SiM’s second single ‘Do The Dance’ was revealed from their upcoming album, Playdead, set to be released worldwide on September 27.
The new single is described as an “aggressive song that is the quintessential SiM” blending ska music with “heavy and danceable riffs” as well as “powerful” and “uplifting” melodies.
The Playdead album includes Attack on Titan’s The Rumbling and Under the Tree, as well as the song ‘Red’ which will be included in season 2 of the Kengan Ashura anime – set to premiere via Netflix on September 21.
The Rumbling was previously included in the Beware EP, which was released in September 2022, with the Playdead studio album reported to feature an orchestral version of the song, as well as an extended version of Under the Tree.
Both songs were used in Attack on Titan’s final season and have, each within their own right, become some of the most popular anime tracks of all time: The Rumbling official music video has over 46 million views, with Under the Tree adding a further 11 million views.
