BABYMETAL just shared a video for the English version of “Elevator Girl” that puts a twist on their live performances.

The video shows them performing live while special effects distort the screen and add to the overall intensity of the song.

BABYMETAL tweeted that the video was in honor of their full U.S. headlining tour that kicks off next month.

The song comes from the group’s highly anticipated forthcoming album, METAL GALAXY. Along with the 14-song tracklist, the band recently revealed the five special guest collab tracks they have on the record.

Last month, BABYMETAL revealed how they would like to do a collab with Bring Me The Horizon. While that collab doesn’t appear on the new album, it still has some incredible guest-filled tracks we’re eager to check out.

The band recently announced their third LP, METAL GALAXY, slated to be released Oct. 11 via BABYMETAL RECORDS and Cooking Vinyl.

Preorders for the album can be found here.

BABYMETAL ANNOUNCE THIRD ALBUM ‘METAL GALAXY’

Babymetal have released four singles over the last year and now fans can get ready for even more music as the kawaii metal unit will release their third album, Metal Galaxy, later this year.

While the album has not officially been announced by the group, an Amazon U.K. webstore link shows the artwork for the Metal Galaxy album and indicates that it will arrive on Oct. 11.

The news comes on the heels of “Pa Pa Ya!!” which is an aggressive new song that was released yesterday (June 27) and features Thai rapper F.Hero as a guest contributor.

This new record will be Babymetal’s first since Metal Resistance, which came out in 2016. There hasn’t been any shortage of music, however, as the band has released “Starlight,” “Distortion” and “Elevator Girl” prior to issuing “Pa Pa Ya!!” Spotify shows those four tracks bundled as one release and it is not known if any of this material will re-appear on Metal Galaxy.

When Babymetal began, the core of the group was represented by their three frontwomen, Su-Metal, Moametal and Yuimetal. Following Yuimetal’s departure in October of last year, the kawaii metal outfit has continued with just Su-Metal and Moametal being the faces of the group while five other members serve as backing musicians.
