Babymetal reveal Metal Resistance details

Babymetal have revealed the artwork and tracklist for their upcoming album Metal Resistance.

The follow-up to the Japanese outfit’s self-titled debut is set for release on April 1 via earMUSIC – a day the group have branded ‘Fox Day.’

Metal Resistance will be released on CD, 2LP and limited-edition box set which includes a Babymetal t-shirt.

The band’s manager KobaMetal says: “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.”

Su-metal, Yuimetal and Moametal will start a world tour at London’s Wembley Arena on April 2, and wrap up at the Tokyo Dome on a date still to be announced. They’ve also announced a handful of shows in the US following their UK appearance.

Babymetal are the 3D cover stars of issue 281 of Metal Hammer.
