BABYMETAL Confirm Brand New Studio Album
Japanese metal-meets-J-pop superstars, BABYMETAL, have confirmed details of their second studio album. The Fox God has spoken…
BABYMETAL will release their second studio album on April 1 through earMUSIC, just in time for their massive headline show at London’s SSE Wembley Arena on April 2. Bookmark this in your calendars, as the day will become known as the Fox Day. On top of that, the band are set to play their biggest-ever show with a huge headline gig in their native Japan at the Tokyo Dome, which holds 55,000 people!
Band mastermind, Kobametal, released the following statement: “As prophesied by the FOX GOD, a new album will be released on April 1st, 2016, also known as the FOX DAY. Since the release of BABYMETAL’s debut album in 2014, we have been racing across the globe non-stop on our World Tour. Through the last tour I have come across people from all over the world and have had the chance to feel that miraculous moment when everyone came together via BABYMETAL. Our new song “THE ONE” contains lyrics that speak of uniting the world, or a crowd favorite at concerts “Road of Resistance” that never fails to bring our fans together, every BABYMETAL song makes up this extraordinary story. I continue to believe that the songs of BABYMETAL continue to push them forward to discover new possibilities. All I can say right now is for all of you to wait patiently for the coming of the FOX DAY.”
Su-metal, the band’s main vocalist commented: “I will be putting my everything into the production of our upcoming album because I believe that many of you are waiting for it. We are looking forward to meeting our fans abroad again next year at Wembley Arena right after the release of our second album, so you can expect to hear our new songs for the very first time live there!! Performing at TOKYO DOME next year still feels like a dream but I am going to work towards building up my confidence to stand on that stage and I hope to continue growing through our upcoming World Tour.”
