BABYMETAL Announce New METAL GALAXY Live Release
BABYMETAL have already encouraged fans to “mosh at home” amid the coronavirus pandemic thanks to a couple of fantastic livestreams back in April, and now they’ve got another live release on the way while we can’t currently attend gigs.
The Japanese metal superstars will be unveiling a new METAL GALAXY-era live collection, LEGEND – METAL GALAXY on September 9 this year via Blu-ray, DVD and CD.
The release will document the band’s gigs at Chiba’s Makuhari Messe International Exhibition Center in Japan on January 25 – 26, with a special The One limited edition also including interviews with BABYMETAL, and a 64-page booklet, Apocalypse.
And it’s no wonder the duo – SU-METAL and MOAMETAL – wanted to document their latest tour. Speaking to Kerrang! when they brought the METAL GALAXY show to the UK, SU-METAL enthused of how the album translated live: “Each song has its own unique colour, so it’s entertaining watching the differences in our fans’ reactions when we perform. I feel that this album has further widened the range of what BABYMETAL is all about.”
“I was extremely happy to see so many children and lots of girls!” added MOAMETAL of the METAL GALAXY Tour’s audience. “I saw girls dressed up like us and I feel so blessed to have such warm fans. I also spotted a lot of hardcore metalheads, and seeing them singing and dancing along to our music is always such a fun sight. It makes me so incredibly happy.”
