A huge congratulations is in order for Japanese pop-metal sensation Babymetal. The teen trio has already conquered the Internet, are massive in Japan and have developed a sizable following in the U.S., as well. However, that following is about to get even larger as the group has been tapped to support Lady Gaga for a handful of tour dates!

We’re not sure if Lady Gaga hand-picked Babymetal herself, but we wouldn’t be surprised if she did. Babymetal is an eclectic and highly addictive act that merges metal instrumentation with classic J-pop elements.

Babymetal is comprised of vocalists Su-metal, 16, Moametal, 14, and Yuimetal, 14. The last two members mentioned even provide harsh screaming. Babymetal released their debut self-titled album earlier this year, peaking at No. 2 on Billboard Japan and at No. 4 on Billboard’s Heatseekers album chart. The ‘Babymetal’ album has also been praised with glowing reviews from both critics and fans. To hear why, check out the videos above and below.

Babymetal will perform in Los Angeles for a headlining show before jumping aboard Lady Gaga’s summer tour for a total of five massive shows.
