BABYMETAL shared the new music video accompanying “Shanti Shanti Shanti,” a new song on the duo’s highly anticipated third album, METAL GALAXY, due Oct. 11.
BABYMETAL’s first new studio album in three and a half years, the upcoming project features various tracks exploring the theme of “traveling the metal galaxy” through the group’s signature kawaii metal sound. The Japan Complete Edition contains 16 tracks on two CDs, including a Japan-only bonus track.
The set features artists including guitarist Tak Matsumoto from the Japanese rock superduo B’z (“DA DA DANCE”), Swedish power metal band Sabaton‘s frontman Joakim Brodén (“Oh! MAJINAI”), Polyphia guitarists Tim Henson and Scott LePage (“Brand New Day”), Swedish melodic death metal band Arch Enemy‘s Alissa White-Gluz (“Distortion”), and Thai rapper F.HERO (“PA PA YA!!”).
Su-metal and Moametal are currently on tour in the U.S., with eight shows plus a festival appearance remaining, including a concert at the Forum in Inglewood, Calif., on Oct. 11. The group also has a Saitama Super Arena concert in Japan lined up for November, with special guest Bring Me the Horizon.
