Yesterday Babymetal dropped its third live music video in a row: the first, Pa Pa Ya! came out back in July, it was followed by Elevator Girl in August and now by Shanti Shanti Shanti. All three songs are brand new and they lead up to the group’s third full-lenght to be released mid-October, that will also include their two 2018 digital singles, Starlight and Distortion. Titled Metal Galaxy, the album will feature a rather impressive international selection of guests: Tak Matsumoto from Japanese rock legends B’z, Joakim Brodén from Sabaton, Tim Henson and Scott LePage from Polyphia and Alissa White-Gluz from Arch Enemy! Plus of course F.Hero who also guest starred in the Pa Pa Ya video.

The international edition will be out on CD and digital featuring 14 tracks, while the Japanese edition will feature 16 tunes on two CDs and will be released in several versions, including one with an additional DVD and some in deluxe packing. Plus, there will be a vinyl edition as well! Even though since the departure of Yuimetal the group is officially down to two members (Su-Metal & Moametal), during concerts they always have a support members taking Yui’s place and while they are currently on a lengthy US tour, next February they will return to Europe for their longest EU tour so far, lasting one month, visiting 17 cities!

And now get ready to scroll a lot: five music videos, album track listing and covers, plus EU tour schedule with and poster!
