Babymetal (opens in new tab) have released a video for their new single Shanti Shanti Shanti.

It’s the latest track taken from Su-metal and Moametal’s upcoming studio album Metal Galaxy, which is set for release on October 11. They previously released PA PA YA!! and Elevator Girl from the follow-up to 2016’s Metal Resistance.

Check out the Shanti Shanti Shanti video below.

Metal Galaxy will feature a number of guest, including Sabaton (opens in new tab)’s Joakim Brodén who sings on Oh! MAJINAI, and Arch Enemy’s Alissa White-Gluz (opens in new tab) who provides vocals on Distortion.

A statement on the record reads: “The new album expresses light and darkness, emotions like duality and ambivalence, and ‘new metal’ created by various chemical reactions as other entities evolved and expanded in this album.

“Just like the Sun and the Moon changes the appearance of this world with its daylight and moonlight, with evermore new type of various sounds, their music paints the metal galaxy in different colours.”

Babymetal are the cover stars off the latest issue of Metal Hammer magazine, which is on sale now (opens in new tab).

In an interview with the Japanese sensations, Su-metal reveals that former member Yuimetal is still very much part of the Babymetal family (opens in new tab).

Babymetal are currently on tour across the US (opens in new tab) and will return to Japan in November for four arena shows, where they’ll be joined by special guests Bring Me The Horizon.
