Babymetal have returned with anthemic new single, Metal Kingdom. The track will feature on their forthcoming album, The Other One, due for release on March 24, 2023.

Metal Kingdom is the latest track to arrive from their upcoming concept album, and follows the previously-released Divine Attack and Monochrome.

To coincide with the release of the new single, Babymetal have shared a trailer for The Other One, consisting of ten second snippets of each song on the new record, alongside matching imagery. 

Last year, the Japanese metallers were “sealed” from the world following their 10-year anniversary.

In April 2022, work began on The Other One, to try and "recover the Babymetal we never knew existed within a virtual world called the Metalverse. A total of 10 songs have been discovered within The Other One restoration project, with each song representing a unique theme based on 10 separate parallel worlds that they have discovered."

This spring, Babymetal will hit the road with Sabaton for a run dubbed The Tour To End All Tours. The trek will kick off on April 14 in Leeds and come to a close on May 20 in Kuopio Hall.

Back in November, the band announced that they would be introducing a 'silent mosh pit' area at their January headline shows in Japan, where attendees must "refrain from activities such as shouting, cheering, talking loudly, or any other behavior that may be an inconvenience to other customers."
