BABYMETAL Parts Ways With YUIMETAL, Releases New Single 'Starlight'
BABYMETAL’s 2018 Japanese tour will begin at Makuhari Messe starting October 23 and will be ending at Kobe World Memorial Hall on October 31. And just days before the start of these performances, BABYMETAL digitally released its new song ”Starlight” while also unveiling the music video on October 19. A portion of this new song ”Starlight” is included in BABYMETAL’s graphic novel ”Apocrypha: The Legend Of Babymetal”’s trailer.
The start of the BABYMETAL Japanese performances will mark the rebirth of the band in which Su-Metal and Moametal form the core.
According to BABYMETAL’s official web site, since last December in Hiroshima, Yuimetal had been absent from performing and during this time both Su-Metal and Moametal as well as the entire staff team had been preparing for her awaited return. However, Yuimetal came to a decision that she will not be performing at October’s Japan performances and that she will no longer be a part of BABYMETAL.
BABYMETAL will also be having a festival-type event with special guests on October 28 which will be held at Saitama Super Arena. This will be BABYMETAL’s first time to be hosting such an event and will be a special night to remember for all attendees.
