BABYMETAL releases new album METAL GALAXY

2020 European headline tour includes show in 013, Tilburg

Japanese metal band BABYMETAL has released their third LP 'METAL GALAXY' via earMUSIC. To celebrate, the band will be playing a sold-out Los Angeles show this evening at The Forum where they are bringing their huge, Japanese arena production to North America for the first time. The show is one of the final shows in a month-and-a-half long US tour. The band will continue their world domination as they head back home for their sold-out arena tour in Japan in November and European headline dates to follow in 2020, including a show in 013 in Tilburg on February 17th. 

The album, set in 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 'Distortion''Starlight''Elevator Girl''PA PA YA!!' featuring Thai rapper F.HERO, 'Shanti Shanti Shanti' and now the full album. The album also features vocalist Joakim Brodén from Sabaton, Alissa White-Gluz from Arch Enemy, guitarists Tim Henson and Scott LePage from Polyphia and Japanese guitarist Tak Matsumoto from B’z.

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 Korea and Guns N' Roses in Japan.
