Welcome to Fox Day! Also known as April 1, the day that BabyMetal's new album Metal Resistance hits stores and also the day that said disc is crowned as the Loudwire April 2016 Release of the Month.

The Loudwire readers have responded overwhelmingly positive toward the disc, with BabyMetal's Metal Resistance receiving just over 62 percent of the final tally in our release of the month poll. Overall, it's a strong month for new rock and metal releases, with Tremonti's Dust, Sixx: A.M.'s Prayers for the Damned, Deftones' Gore and Black Stone Cherry's Kentucky all racking up significant voting totals as well.

So far, fans have been treated to a pair of tracks -- the infectiously catchy "KARATE" and the progressive sounding rocker "The One." But that's just the beginning of a solid album, which you can now get by ordering Metal Resistance via iTunes.

Commenting on the album early on, Su-Metal stated, “I will be putting my everything into the production of our upcoming album because I believe that many of you are waiting for it. We are looking forward to meeting our fans abroad again at Wembley Arena right after the release of our second album, so you can expect to hear our new songs for the very first time live there.”

“Since the release of BabyMetal’s debut album in 2014, we have been racing across the globe non-stop on our world tour," adds creative mastermind Kobametal. "Through the last tour, I have come across people from all over the world and have had the chance to feel that miraculous moment when everyone came together via BabyMetal.”

BabyMetal will be hitting the road during the month of April to promote their new album. See where they'll be playing here, and look for the group appearing on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert on April 5.

Once again, congrats to BabyMetal as Metal Resistance has been voted by Loudwire's readers as the April 2016 Release of the Month!
