It’s gonna be a huge couple of months for BABYMETAL with the release of their new album THE OTHER ONE and a UK/Europe tour supporting Sabaton.

And they’re adding to the excitement with the announcement of their first-ever Asia and Australia headline run, kicking off soon after their Sabaton shows finish.

The duo – SU-METAL and MOAMETAL – say that they are “thrilled” to announce these new headline tour dates, which kick off in Jakarta, Indonesia on May 26, and wrap up at Melbourne’s Margaret Court Arena on June 11. Tickets go on sale this Monday, March 20 at 9am local time.

See the full dates below:

Speaking to Kerrang! about THE OTHER ONE and their personal favourite lyrics from the album, SU-METAL says that a phrase from their single Monochrome – ‘No matter how long the night, the morning will arrive’ – means the most to her.

“It has been a long night for all of us. For us, it was difficult to perform live and even meet people,” she explains. “Some people are still fighting through this difficult situation. But everyone is gradually returning back into their daily lives. I want to encourage people to keep their chin up and have faith that a brighter future will come even if the sky is pitch black.”
