Sigh is back and they're as beautifully weird as they've ever been. The band is now streaming their new single "Mayonaka No Kaii" alongside a video animated by the legendary Costin Chioreanu.

"The song is kind of a culmination of what Sigh have been up to," said keyboardist and vocalist Mirai Kawashima. "Whistle scream, throat singing, Uriah Heep like vocal harmonies, vocoder, flute solo, shakuhachi solo, Hammond solo and the great guitar solo by Fred – it's got everything! Although it's only 5-minute long, it's a very dramatic song with many aspects. The title stands for 'a strange incident at midnight', and it's based on actual weird experience I had.

"Long story short, I experienced midnight twice in one night! You can read the details at the end of the video. We have been working with Costin for a long time, so we were 100% sure that he'd be the best guy to visualize my eerie experience, and how did it turn out? You all see for yourselves!"

Sigh will release their new record Shiki on August 26. The album features bassist Frédéric Leclercq of Kreator and drummer Mike Heller of Fear Factory, along with an appearance by longtime member Satoshi Fujinami on bass. Pre-orders are available here.
