“The Rumbling is coming!” exclaims vocalist MAH. “We can’t wait to perform live shows in your country for the first time in 6 years…it’s gonna be a blast!! See you in the pit.”
SiM’s record-shattering recent single “The Rumbling” was released this past January via Pony Canyon along with the news of it being the opening theme for the popular anime series “Attack On Titan: The Final Season Part 2”–the first-ever non-English language series to earn the title of “World’s Most In-Demand TV Show,” previously held by only “The Walking Dead” and “Game of Thrones.” It debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Hot Hard Rock Songs, #2 on Hard Rock Digital Song Sales, #5 on Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles and #13 on Hot Rock & Alternative Songs. To date “The Rumbling” has received over 200 million streams and its CGI-mixed-with-live-performance footage music video has over 23 million views. “‘The Rumbling’ bears a strong, infectiously catchy chorus that’ll get you scream-singing from the top of your lungs…It’s one of the most memorable anime openings, and an absolutely killer metal track on its own,” lauds staff writer Nicholas Gaudet of Music Talkers (2/3/22).
