Yuimetal is still in BABYMETAL

yuimetall

A spokesperson from the American mangement company representing BABYMETAL has confirmed Yuimetal remains a member of the Japanese pop/metal alloy act. The statement stems from the fan response to Yuimetal’s absence from the first two dates of the band’s current U.S. tour.

When asked specifically about her absence from this tour, a representative from 5B Management confirmed that “Yuimetal remains a member of the band, but she is not on this current U.S. tour. There is a new narrative for the future of the band which is currently evolving. The storyline has changed. This was the basis of the ‘Metal Resistance Episode 7: The Revelation’ video.” The representative went on to explain that the seven hooded figures in the bombastic clip represent a new era for the band, with the addition of new characters. “The who, when, where, and how of The Chosen Seven will be presented as the concept unfolds.”

BABYMETAL kicked off a much-anticipated U.S. tour this week in Kansas City, Missouri, but the unannounced absence of Yuimetal led to rampant speculation of the singer’s whereabouts. Fans have been using the hashtag #whereisyuimetal to demand answers.

While the commentary does little to answer what’s going on with fan-favorite Yuimetal (aka Yui Mizuno, 18), it does fuel speculation over what the next over-the-top chapter will be in BABYMETAL’s storied history.

YUIMETAL will not be playing at LEGEND – S – BAPTISM XX –

yuimetall

is is an important notice regarding today and tomorrow’s performance LEGEND – S – BAPTISM XX – at Hiroshima Green Arena on December 2nd and 3rd.

One of the BABYMETAL members YUIMETAL is unfortunately not feeling well and doctors have suggested that it is in her best interest to not perform over these two days.

We regret to inform this unfortunate news and truly apologize in advance for all of the fans who were looking forward to seeing all three members play.

As an entire team, we considered canceling this performance, however, it was YUIMETAL’s strong desire to not cancel this performance for the fans who were waiting and looking forward to these performances. After long discussions and careful consideration, both SU-METAL and MOAMETAL as well as the entire BABYMETAL staff team came to a final conclusion to continue these performances for the dedicated fans who have been waiting for this special event as well as for team BABYMETAL. Therefore, we will hold these performances as scheduled.

For YUIMETAL, who unfortunately will not be playing, SU-METAL, MOAMETAL, and the entire staff team would like to come together as THE ONE with all of the fans who will be coming to the performances. Team BABYMETAL would sincerely appreciate your love and continued support and would like to ask for your kind understanding.

BABYMETAL & the entire staff team
