New Album METAL GALAXY to Release Oct. 11

Their third album METAL GALAXY was announced in June this year, along with with a new track “PA PA YA!!” featuring Thai rapper F.HERO, and dropped a video for it on July 1 (watch the video below).

 BABYMETAL’s first release of the year was “Elevator Girl” via Cooking Vinyl. The single was the first piece of music since METAL RESISTANCE EPISODE VII,  the episode that sparked a new era of BABYMETAL where the FOX GOD sent the band on a darker path, which manifests in the darker tone of the new material as heard on “Elevator Girl.” 

METAL GALAXY is to be released October 11 via BABYMETAL RECORDS / Cooking Vinyl. The album, aptly titled after a fictional place within the BABYMETAL universe, is about an odyssey the band must take to the METAL GALAXY, a trajectory thrust upon them by the FOX GOD. Each song brings them closer to their desired destination starting with their previously released “Elevator Girl”, “Distortion” and “PA PA YA!!”

CD & Vinyl Pre-orders HERE

Recorded over the weekend at their Yokohama Arena in front of 17,000 people, the video for “PA PA YA!!” features the same incredible production set up the band brought to the US dates this summer.

In the 3 years since the release of their last album, 2016’s METAL RESISTANCE, the band has achieved an insurmountable amount of success around the world with hundreds of millions of audio streams, and almost a billion YouTube views. They played to 110,000 people over the course of two nights at the massive TOKYO DOME, supported Red Hot Chili Peppers on their UK/US arena tour along with additional support slots with Metallica in South Korean and Guns N’ Roses in Japan. They continued their success in the US as they embarked on a full national US headline tour that started September 4,  culminating in the band’s first headline arena show in North America at The Forum in Los Angeles on October 11. Tickets and VIP packages for remaining dates on-sale here.
