Babymetal have released a brand new single - the second to be taken from upcoming studio album The Other One, which lands on March 24. Last month, the Japanese kawaii-metal sensations - now a duo comprised of Su-metal and Moametal - officially ended their hiatus with the announcement of the new record and a first single, Divine Attack.

Now armed with another new song in the shape of the epic Monochrome, the band's next era is beginning to properly take shape.

Listen to Monochrome below.

Of Divine Attack, Babymetal's press team previously stated: "As if this song is a hint into the future, alluding to a cavalry preparing for their next battle, we can feel a new sense of power from not only the sound but also the lyrics." 

Babymetal hit the road across Europe with Sabaton and Lordi next Spring on what is being dubbed The Tour To End All Tours. Check out the full list of dates below
