Discussing performing live with Kerrang! on the recent UK leg of their METAL GALAXY tour, MOAMETAL enthused: I’m always excited about going onstage, as I’m eager to know what kind of audience is waiting for us. When I hear the fans making noise while we’re backstage, impatient thoughts like, I want to see all of you as soon as I can!’ go through my mind.”

Explaining how latest album METAL GALAXY has helped shaped their show, SU-METAL added, 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.”
