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.




Herman Li talked something funny about BABYMETAL and SU-METAL’s English

Herman Li was interviewed by Chinese media site “Lok Wood Tao” about DragonForce’s new album《Reaching Into Infinity》. He answered some of the questions from their fans, including one about BABYMETAL, where he talked something funny about their collaboration on June 12th, 2015 at Download Festival.

“When we first started collaborating, BABYMETAL didn’t know how to speak English. So we pointed and gestured and there was someone who translated (for us). I think that she.. Su (now) speaks better English than the translators. So it’s funny, now we can talk about the Download festival where we first played, it was a stage were we didn’t even rehearse, we played this song Gimme Chocolate. I remember there was this problem, where there was these really weird sounds that we didn’t know where it was coming from. We were just… [insert Herman’s funny faces], all of our faces were like this. At that time, she didn’t know how to speak, we weren’t able to communicate as their/her English wasn’t good enough… wasn’t fluent enough. Now we can laugh, and joke… “wahh remember last time the sound was really bad? Before we played, we didn’t know in front of thousands of people was it right to not have had rehearsals beforehand. It was really risky!” We can laugh about now, about how we were able to pull of the concert.”
