BABYMETAL Explain The Inspiration Behind Their New Album METAL GALAXY

With new album METAL GALAXY on the way, BABYMETAL reveal what inspired the themes behind it.

After teasing that their new album METAL GALAXY will be a “new evolution of kawaii metal”, BABYMETAL have now revealed the inspiration behind it.

Speaking to Kerrang! in this week’s issue of the magazine, MOAMETAL explains how the band are on an odyssey to the METAL GALAXY on album number three (hence the title), and that some very particular and special circumstances inspired this theme.

At this moment, there is a typhoon #4 approaching Japan and is apparently named Typhoon Moon,” she says. “The main theme of the Yokohama Arena show 6/28 – 29 is the SUN and the Nagoya shows 7/6 – 7 is the MOON and the fact that this typhoon is named the MOON and the timing of its approach all seems so strange but at the same time very remarkable. We are creatures of the earth and live on this planet through the powers of the sun and moon and through all facets of nature so I want our odyssey to the METAL GALAXY to be one that we constantly appreciate how much we are able to travel the world through the power of music.

I hope our fans are able to experience that they are also on an odyssey to the METAL GALAXY with us,” MOAMETAL continues. “We’ve incorporated different types of music into this album and we hope that fans are able to feel our determination to a new departure. Also, although people from all over live in different environments, I hope that with this album, we can bring more people together as one.”

The band’s highly-anticipated record – the follow-up to 2016’s METAL RESISTANCE – is due out on October 11, and will also be accompanied by some new tour dates in the UK in 2020. Pre-order it right now here.
