Babymetal drops a mysterious new trailer announcing the arrival of Metal Resistance. The clip also claims that a new era will begin soon.
The video, which is over two minutes long, opens with information on how Babymetal transcends time, space, body, and mind. The trio also called themselves legends or the chosen ones.
No other information has been released about Metal Resistance, and it is still unclear if this refers to the title of Babymetal's upcoming album. In 2016, the Japanese pop-metal group already released a compilation called Metal Resistance. It is also possible that Metal Resistance is the title of a new song.
On May 8, the trio will head to Uptown Theater in Kansas City, Missouri. This show will be followed by their performances at the ACL Live at the Moody Theater in Austin, Texas on May 10, House of Blues Dallas in Dallas, Texas on May 11, Revention Music Center in Houston, Texas on May 13, Tabernacle Atlanta in Atlanta, Georgia on May 15, and more.
In June, Suzuka Nakamoto, Yui Mizuno, and Moa Kikuchi will head to the Rock am Ring in Nürburg, Germany on June 1. Their shows in the U.K. will wrap up on June 9 at the Download UK in Derby, United Kingdom.
