BABYMETAL Will Release A New Single Next Month, Announce First-Ever U.S. Arena Show

Japanese pop-metal crew BABYMETAL will release a new single next month, and have announced their first-ever U.S. headlining show.

Earlier this month, Japanese superstars BABYMETAL announced that they will release their new album in 2019. Now, the band has told the world that they will drop a new single next month — and they’ve also announced their first-ever U.S. headlining arena show.

The new song, Elevator Girl, will come out May 10th, though it’s already been released in the form of multi-cam live video (check it out below). Meanwhile, October 11th will be the date of the band’s first headlining arena show in America, at the Forum in Los Angeles, so devotees should get ready to buy tickets. No support acts have been announced.

Last year was a big shift for Babymetal, as it saw the departure of member YUIMETAL. In a statement released by the band, BABYMETAL said, “YUIMETAL had expressed her desire to return performing with the group in the following months after last December’s performance due health concerns. During her absence, both SU-METAL and MOAMETAL as well as the entire staff team had been preparing for her awaited return. However, YUIMETAL came to a decision that she will not be performing at BABYMETAL WORLD TOUR 2018 in JAPAN and that she will no longer be a part of BABYMETAL. We thank her for all of her contributions and wish her all the best in her future endeavors…This month’s BABYMETAL WORLD TOUR 2018 in JAPAN will mark the rebirth in which SU-METAL and MOAMETAL form the core of BABYMETAL.

We would like to express our deepest gratitude to the fans for the continued support and look forward in what’s next for BABYMETAL.”

Whether the band will eventually replace YUIMETAL has yet to be announced. BABYMETAL will also be playing live at the following upcoming dates, so fans in Japan should be sure to catch them there.
