As the follow-up to 2016’s METAL RESISTANCE, all eyes are on the Japanese superstars to see what they come up with next. There has been no confirmed tracklisting, although we do know new track PA PA YA!! will feature on the record. The band have also been playing an as-yet-unnamed new track in their recent shows in London and at Glastonbury festival.

“It’s always fun to play new material,” vocalist Moametal tells Kerrang!. “PA PA YA!! is a song where both us and the audience get to shout, dance, and wave our flags around – it’s just overall a very fun song.

“I’m looking forward to performing it a lot more, so please make sure to learn it before you come to see us again. On the recorded version on our next album, it is done in collaboration with a Thai rapper [F. Hero].

“The album is going to be a new evolution of kawaii metal – it involves a mixture of different types of music. We’re really looking forward to releasing it!”

Speaking about BABYMETAL’s debut performance at Glastonbury festival, Moametal says she knew in advance just how big and “special” the festival is.

“Su-Metal (vocalist) and I were discussing in the past how cool it would be to perform there one day. When we were there, I could see how many people were at the festival, and I was just amazed at how magical the experience was. I am so honoured to have been invited to go and play at the festival.”

Following the release of METAL GALAXY on October 11, BABYMETAL’s will embark on their first-ever full UK tour. Get your tickets now.

On December 7, 2018, it was announced that her contract with UP-FRONT PROMOTION expired at the end of November 2018 and she had subsequently graduated from Hello! Project.

On June 28 at Yokohama Arena, BABYMETAL held their first concert of the year, BABYMETAL AWAKENS -THE SUN ALSO RISES-, where a support dancer took the place left by third member YUIMETAL (Mizuno Yui), who quit due to health reasons in October 2018.

Although the support dancer was not introduced during the concert, news sites and audience members on social media identified her as Sayashi. According to Sponichi Annex, a support dancer would be chosen as the third member for each of BABYMETAL’s performances, and Sayashi was chosen for that day. Before they debuted, Sayashi was rivals with the band’s main vocalist SU-METAL (Nakamoto Suzuka) when they attended Actor’s School Hiroshima together.
