シド (SID) is a Japanese rock band signed to Sony and Danger Crue Records. They first came together in 2003, the original members being Mao and Aki. It wasn't until early 2004 that Yuuya and Shinji were adopted as official, rather than support, members, leaving SID with a full and lasting lineup. Notoriously dubbed the "monster band of the indie scene" by numerous publications, SID grew rapidly in their initial years, charting in with major releases on Oricon and successfully selling out numerous large venues, Budokan among them. They stood out from their peers with their ever-changing sound and the ease with which they could shift between styles, a characteristic that could describe few other Visual Kei bands. Their major debut concert was held on November 2nd, 2008 at Nippon Budokan - selling out in under three minutes - and following, a final indie tour was held within standing live halls all throughout Japan. They have since gone on to release three major singles, the most recent of which (嘘 [[i]Uso, Lies] ) ranked in at second on Oricon and landed them a spot on the popular show Music Station for the first time. Their first major album, hikari, was released on July 1, 2009, and serves as the primary set list for their largest tour to date.
