Japanese metal band, BABYMETAL has announced their third LP METAL GALAXY to be released October 11th via BABYMETAL RECORDS / Cooking Vinyl. The album, aptly titled after a fictional place within the BABYMETAL universe, is about an odyssey the band must take to the METAL GALAXY, a trajectory thrust upon them by the FOX GOD sending the band on a darker path. Each song brings them closer to their desired destination starting with their previously released ''Elevator Girl'', ''Distortion'' and today with new song ''PA PA YA!!'' featuring Thai rapper F.HERO.
In the 3 years since the release of their last album, 2016's METAL RESISTANCE, the band has achieved an insurmountable amount of success around the world with hundreds of millions of audio streams, and almost a billon YouTube views.
