BabyMetal Unveil ‘Road of Resistance’ Live Video
BabyMetal are becoming a worldwide phenomenon and it's not hard to see why. The three young ladies -- Su-Metal, Yuimetal and Moametal -- seriously rock, not only on record but onstage as well. For the uninitiated, BabyMetal give you a glimpse of what their live show is like in the brand new "Road of Resistance" video.
In the clip seen above, the trio played a sold out show at Japan's Saitama Super Arena for 20,000-plus in attendance. And, as you can say, the audience is hanging on every word and action, separating for an awesome "wall of death" on command from the ladies at the beginning of the song, singing along and mirroring the motions of BabyMetal at certain parts as well.
"Road of Resistance," which once carried the title "The One," features guest turns by DragonForce guitarists Herman Li and Sam Totman. Their playing can be heard on the studio version of the track.
The song will actually be one of two bonus cuts on the upcoming worldwide release of the band's self-titled album. The other new track is a bonus live rendition of the group's hit single "Gimme Chocolate!!" The disc will be available in the U.S. digitally on May 12, while physical versions will be offered on June 16. The Babymetal self-titled disc is also getting a fresh release in Germany, Sweden, Finland and Spain on May 29, in the U.K., Belgium, Holland, Poland, Switzerland, Norway and Denmark on June 1 and a day later (June 2) in Italy. BabyMetal's disc was just voted by Loudwire's Readers as the May 2015 Release of the Month.
The group is in the midst of a world tour, but several North American dates are on the horizon. The trio will play the Circo Volador on May 9 in Mexico City, followed by a May 12 performance at Toronto's Danforth Music Hall, a May 14 date at Chicago's House of Blues and will be one of the big draws at the 2015 Rock on the Range Festival May 16 in Columbus, Ohio.
