BABYMETAL have finally unveiled the first track from their eagerly anticipated second album ‘Metal Resistance‘ and it’s everything you’d expect from the band and more. Following its live premiere during the band’s two headline shows at Yokohama Arena in Japan, you can now check out ‘Karate‘ below or here.
The track is available as an instant download when you preorder ‘Metal Resistance’. Speaking about the record Kobometal explained, “I 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.”
‘Metal Resistance’ is coming April 1st which is the aforementioned Fox Day. Why? Because the Fox God said so. To celebrate the release the band will be heading out on a world tour. Starting at London’s Wembley Arena on April 2nd and finishing at the 55,000 capacity Tokyo Dome, the band will also be hitting the US for a short run of dates.
Speaking about the tour late last year, Su-Metal explained, “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.”
“I promise you that we will come up with an album that will betray your expectations, in a good way of course,” added Moametal and, based on ‘Karate’, Babymetal have done exactly what they promised.
