New album Metal Galaxy due on October 11th
Japanese metallers Babymetal have released a new song and video ‘Shanti Shanti Shanti’ from their forthcoming LP ‘Metal Galaxy’ which is released on October 11th.
The track comes in the midst of their North American tour that culminates in their first US arena show at The Forum in Los Angles on album release day, where they will bring their huge, Japanese-style production to the States for the first time.
The album, set in the Babymetal universe, is about an odyssey the band must take to the ‘Metal Galaxy’, a trajectory thrust upon them by the Fox God. Each song brings them closer to their desired destination starting with the previously released “Distortion”, “Starlight”, “Elevator Girl“, “PA PA YA!!” featuring Thai rapper F.HERO. and now “Shanti Shanti Shanti”.
METAL GALAXY, coming October 11th, features Joakim Brodén of Sabaton, Alissa White-Gluz from Arch Enemy, guitarists Tim Henson and Scott LePage from Polyphia, Thai-rapper F.HERO and B’z guitarist Tak Matsumoto.
