BiSH – the Japanese group known as “the punk band without musical instruments” – has released ‘STACKiNG,’ the opening theme song to the second season of the anime series ‘Kingdom,’ which began broadcasting July 18. The single is available digitally now and will be followed by a new album on August 4.
The rock sound and powerful vocals on ‘STACKiNG’ are typical of BiSH, and the layer of emotional strings results in a song that perfectly captures the epic vibe of the anime series.

A music video for ‘STACKiNG’ was also released, which had been highly anticipated since a teaser video was released two days earlier. The video was directed by Masaki Okita, whose numerous previous BiSH videos include ‘Orchestra’ and ‘Life is Beautiful. The video for ‘STACKiNG’ offers a nostalgic trip to a past version of Japan, with the members of BiSH in a variety of eye-catching outfits and locations.
The limited-edition first print of BiSH’s fourth major-label album, ‘GOiNG TO DESTRUCTiON,’ released on Wednesday, August 4, will include making the ‘STACKiNG’ video, packed with comments from the members and behind-the-scenes footage. So naturally, fans won’t want to miss this particular video.
