Yuimetal is still in BABYMETAL

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 –

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

First Footage of Yui falling off stage at Budokan

Go to the beginning of the video to see scan caps to better see what happened. The video starts just before Yui falls, a bit difficult to see due to arms moving.
Video contains Headbanger and IDZ, crowd give a big cheers when they see Yui return. You can’t see Moa when she falls during IDZ. Of course we are all glad Yui and Moa came out ok, professionals both.

Nylon: Music Sensation Babymetal Talks Overlords and Ariana Grande

Japanese idol culture has nothing to do with Keith Urban or jazzy interpretations of Tracy Chapman’s “Fast Car.”

2a6a039b-s

The idol performers are interchangeable figurines who, unlike American pop culture icons, are not individualized. Idols typically sing saccharine, Kawaii-styled J-pop, but there are rare occasions in which these teenage performers jump genres, moving away from the existing, seizure-inducing model. Yuimetal, Su-metal, and Moametal are the trio behind the Japanese sensation Babymetal—a group that both embraces and defies the Idol genre.

Before her turn to the dark side, Su-metal was a member of two bands, Sakura Gakuin and Karen’s Girls, both of which produced up-tempo dance pop. Now, with the help of the Fox God, their fictitious, benevolent spiritual overseer, Su-metal and the rest of the gang have transitioned into hardcore music overlaid with j-pop vocals. The result is undeniably fantastic and bizarre. Babymetal is a craze, drawing tens of thousands of diehard fans into arenas around the world. Read the transcript below, or watch NYLON’s interview in which we sweat under the sheer force of this epic teenage trio.

Hi this is Mickey from Nylon and this is…

Su-metal: Su-metal

Yuimetal: Yuimetal

Moametal: Moametal

Su-metal: We are…

All: Babymetal!!!

What is the craziest thing you’ve seen at a concert?

Moametal: Once when we performed at a festival there were between 50, 000 and 60, 000 people in the audience we were so shocked. It was crazy.

Nylon: Who is your favorite singer?

Yuimetal: Ariana Grande.

Oh! Mine too. Can you sing any part of any Ariana Grande songs for us?

Who is the Fox God and what is his purpose?

Su-metal: we don’t really know a lot about the Fox God, but we believe in him. We never imagined ourselves in this unbelievable situation that we’re in today such as having concerts all over the world and we believe this is all given to us by the Fox God.

How do you communicate with the Fox God?

Su-metal: We receive revelations through Kobametal the only person who can receive revelations directly from the Fox God.

And who is Kobametal?

Yuimetal: The producer.

What are the Babymetal fans called?

Su-metal: We are called ‘the one.’

Oh, so all of them together are ‘the one.’ Alright. Powerful. Who are your typical fans and what do they look like?

Su-metal: Depending on the country there are different types of fans from older generations to kids, males, females, pop fans, and metal fans, there are varieties of fans that like different genres.

What happens when your pop fans and your metal fans come together and mix it up in the mosh pit?

Su-metal: Well, I think the pop fans were surprised by the metal fans in the beginning but now they all enjoy moshing and getting together.

So how do you guys talk to your fans? Is there a scream or is there a gesture or is there a hand movement?

Su-metal: We always do this fox sign that appears in our choreography very often. Our fans enjoy doing this sign together at our shows.

What is one thing that you love about America?

Yuimetal: I like the freedom America has in Japan people tend to think too much about others’ opinions and how to be like everybody else but to Americans it seems more important to be who you are and find your own way.

So as a very rad and intimidating metal singer yourself is there anything you’re afraid of?

Yuimetal: Ghosts.

Oh ghosts? Me too. I’m terrified of ghosts. And you?

Moametal: My mom when she’s mad…
