Reggae-Punk band SiM closed another successful tour with a sold-out 2-man show at Shibuya AX on Sunday. This last show of the tour promoting their latest EP, “EViLS”, featured ONE OK ROCK as the opening act, who got the audience fully ready for another of SiM’s powerful live performances.

At about 8 pm, right before the start of the show, and while a white curtain still concealed the stage, the audience that packed the AX got teased with the announcement of the upcoming release of their new album, “PANDORA”, to hit the stores this Fall. These news drove the fans over the edge, starting the frenzy in the pit even before the curtain went down and while the members of SiM were nothing but a shadow on the white cloth that covered the stage.

SiM’s performance did not disappoint. Playing tunes from almost all their releases, the 4-piece band kept the energy high and the audience on their feet, and sometimes with their fists out (when the pit got too crazy) during the whole 90 minutes of their act. Only during the MC moments, when the frontman and singer, MaH, addressed the audience, did things calm down. In one of these interludes MaH took out his phone and snapped a picture that he immediately posted online (here) to the delight of everyone present.

When it was all set and done, and despite the bruises, the bloody noses and more than one fan recovering on the floor from exhaustion, everyone was happy and SiM went home with another notch under their belt.
