Babymetal’s live plans for 2020 were scuppered by the coronavirus pandemic, including a planned set at this year’s Download Festival.
They instead took part in a virtual edition of the metal festival, which was headlined by Iron Maiden, Kiss and System Of A Down.
In April, they also announced a series of virtual gigs called “Stay Home, Stay Metal”.
Last year, the band’s Su-Metal and Moametal sat down with NME to discuss their third album ‘Metal Galaxy’, which arrived last October.
Reviewing ‘Metal Galaxy’ last year, NME said: “From the brief flamenco break in the pummelling ‘Night Night Burn’ and the doomy guttural rumblings of ‘In The Name Of’ to the horns-up thrash anthemics of ‘Distortion’, ‘Metal Galaxy’ is a wild ride that, through its sheer energy, is somehow infectiously accessible.”
