BABYMETAL was featured in the printed edition of the San Francisco Chronicles in the "Weekend Datebook" segment. Read the full article below and a picture of the printed issue.
"BABYMETAL, , a trio of schoolgirls with a serious heavy-metal fetish, is Japan’s hottest new export.
Made up of Moa “Moametal” Kikuchi, 16, Yui “Yuimetal” Mizuno, 16, and Suzuka “Sumetal” Nakamoto, 18, the group might have been created in the studio, but its success is real. The video for its single “Gimme Chocolate” has more than 55 million views on YouTube, and its self-titled debut was the best-selling Japanese album in America in 2014.
This month, the band performs with Judas Priest front man Rob Halford and warms up for Rammstein at the Download festival. Its latest album, “Metal Resistance,” meanwhile, presents the perfect cross section of shredding riffs and Harajuku gothic baby doll dresses."
