VIDEO: Rock and J-pop Collide as BABYMETAL Announces New Album

On sale 2/26

Japan’s three-headed monster of thrash, BABYMETAL, is set to unleash their very first full length LP on the world -– a self-titled combination of singles and new tracks set for release on 2/26 -- and a pair of infernal video clips have just been revealed in the name of promotion.


The first clip is the BABYMETAL album trailer proper, showing highlights from the trio’s recent promo videos and cult hit songs, including “Ijime, Dame, Zettai” and “Headbangeeeeerrrrr!!”.



The second clip below showcases BABYMETAL’s whirling dervish dance moves amidst demands for sweets as they trash about in concert to the scintillating sounds of new song “Gimmie Choco!!”




Expect more evil madness from BABYMETAL building up to the release of the new record next month. In the meantime, here’s the scary cover art.
