BABYMETAL announced for Sonisphere Festival UK!

babymetalOur FAVOURITE Japanese superstars are finally coming to our shores to slay us with their unique brand of cute rock. BABYMETAL are set to storm the third stage at Sonisphere UK (Bohemia Stage) on the Sunday, and we CAN’T WAIT. They are promising “an all-singing, all-dancing show the UK has never seen the like of before!” Sweet.

A statement was released via Sonisphere’s site this morning;

“I am so honored that we are confirmed to play Sonisphere Festival UK,” declares SU-METAL. “There are so many different types of artists playing this festival but I hope to deliver a one and only, unique style metal –BABYMETAL – even to those who will see us for the very first time.  This will be our very first time in the UK, which makes us nervous, yet excited just imagining what type of people will come and see us, what sort of show it will end up being, and whether the audience will enjoy our show. We’ll hopefully get to see Metallica-san’s performance again after witnessing them at Summer Sonic festival in Japan which we are very excited about.”

Japanese viral phenomenon BABYMETAL will make their debut appearance in the United Kingdom atSonisphere this summer.  Since uploading the video of their latest single ‘Gimme Chocolate’ less than two months ago it has received more than 5 million views. The music press was forced to stand up and take notice, with everyone from Kerrang! and Metal Hammer to the Guardian and USA Today covering the teenage trio’s catchy blend of iconic pop and heavy metal.

We don’t know about you, but we’re buying our Sunday tickets NOW.
