Japanese metal band BABYMETAL have released a new song and video “Shanti Shanti Shanti” from their forthcoming album METAL GALAXY out October 11th via earMUSIC. The track comes in the midst of a national US tour that stops in Denver tomorrow night with San Francisco, Seattle and more still to come (remaining dates below) culminating in their first US arena show at The Forum in Los Angles on album release day. 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. Each song brings them closer to their desired destination starting with their previously released “Elevator Girl“, “Distortion”, “PA PA YA!!” featuring Thai rapper F.HERO. and now “Shanti Shanti Shanti”. The song is available now on all streaming services.

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.
They played to 110,000 people over the course of two nights at the massive TOKYO DOME, supported Red Hot Chili Peppers on their UK/US arena tour along with additional support slots with Metallica in South Korean and Guns N’ Roses in Japan.
