BABYMETAL have dropped a surprise new single 'Distortion', ahead of the first date on their 2018 US tour today. The single and video is the first look in to the new, previously unrevealed dark side of BABYMETAL.
Check out the brand new BABYMETAL single below:
Last month, BABYMETAL unveiled a new 'revelation' about the next chapter of the band, stating “Until now, we have only experienced the light side, the legend of three metal spirits. An unknown dark side, a legend of seven metal spirits, THE CHOSEN SEVEN exists.”
Today we've been given more information on what this all means, and what this new chapter represents. See below:
"On April 1st, known as 'FOX DAY', a new prophecy was revealed. The prophecy revealed that up until now we have only experienced the LIGHT SIDE and there exists an unknown DARK SIDE, a legend of seven metal spirits THE CHOSEN SEVEN. The new song “Distortion” explores the unrevealed DARK SIDE, the APOCRYPHA, the legend of seven metal spirits in which power is distorted through time and space. The music video of this song presents this unknown side and marks the important beginning of a new legend."
Whatever this new chapter brings, we're set to know more soon with the BABYMETAL 2018 tour kicking off in Kansas City, Missouri. Stay tuned.
