Babymetal will release their new album Metal Galaxy on October 11 which will include a number of guest artists, including Sabaton's Joakim Brodén and Arch Enemy's Alissa White-Gluz.

A statement on Metal Galaxy 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 will return to Japan in November for four arena shows, where they’ll be joined by special guests Bring Me The Horizon (opens in new tab).
