BABYMETAL video interview

BABYMETAL are set to release their third album, Metal Galaxy, this week. In support of the LP, the Japanese pop-metal band is currently in the midst of its first-ever full-scale headlining tour of the United States.

Metal Galaxy arrives this Friday (October 11th), featuring the singles “Elevator Girl”, “Pa Pa Ya!”, and more. It includes guest vocals from Arch Enemy’s Alissa White-Gluz and Sabaton’s Joakim Brodén, among others.

We caught BABYMETAL’s show at Terminal 5 in New York City, where they played to a packed house of enthusiastic fans. The next day, we had the opportunity to sit down with members Su-metal and Moametal for a video interview.
