Japanese Boy Band

MADKID is a Japanese boyband consisting of 2 rappers (LIN and YUKI) and 3 vocalist (YOU-TA, SHIN, KAZUKI). They formed in 2014 and made their major debut in 2018.

In 2019, the group released the song “RISE” for the TV anime "The Rising of the Shield Hero" and it quickly became a hit all over the world.

They were later able to release their song “FAITH”,“Bring Back”, which became the second opening for the series.

In October the same year, they released their new single “SIN” which became the theme song for Season 3 of "The Rising of the Shield Hero”.

In December 2023, they released their new single “FLY”, the opening theme for the new TV anime series “Sasaki and Peeps" that will release in January 2024.

In February 2024 it has been announced that MADKID are also doing the opening theme for the TV Anime “Tadaima, Okaeri” which will release in April. The theme song is titled “Futatsu no Kotoba (Two Words)".
