Speaking to NME about their relationship with the Sheffield metal giants, BABYMETAL said that they might soon be working together as well as touring.

“We love Bring Me The Horizon and I respect the band and their music,” said Moametal. “We want to collaborate with Bring Me The Horizon.”

As for the direction of their new album, Su-Metal told NME. “There’s a shift and a change in how we’ve matured to becoming adults.

“For the next album, we’re facing a lot of new challenges. Our single ‘Elevator Girl’ represents me becoming an adult and the new metal that we have created. Our album is like a toybox with a different mixture of songs in there. ‘Elevator Girl’ is just one of those songs in the mix.”
