BABYMETAL To Release New Single, Embark On 'Death Match Tour'
April 17, 2013
BABYMETAL, the heavy metal offshoot of the Japanese pop idol group SAKURA GAKUIN that performs a distinctly Japanese mix of schoolgirl J-pop and death metal, will release a new single, "Megitsune", on June 19. The song is said to combine traditional Japanese instruments with metal overtones and an enka ballad to create a festive sound. The theme of the track is "women are born actresses." Four different versions will be made available for fans to purchase: a limited "Tsu", limited "Ki", and a limited "Ne" edition, as well as a less expensive regular edition. The limited versions will come with bonus videos from the BABYMETAL live events that were held from 2012 to early 2013.
BABYMETAL will embark on the "Death Match Tour 2013" in May and will be accompanied by a "full metal band."
BABYMETAL released its first major single, "Ijime, Dame, Zettai", on January 9. The video for the track can be seen below.
