Watch This ABC News Report on Babymetal
Not to be all “We liked Babymetal before it was cool,” but seriously, we did. It seems kind of odd to see the media machine whip into high gear again around Babymetal’s North American appearances this spring and the re-release of their debut album Stateside — we just went through this whole process last year! I’m ready for a real new Babymetal album already — but hey, it’s happening, and as long as Babymetal are gaining more exposure and new fans, I’m all good with it.
So: here’s a video report in which ABC News North Asia correspondent Matthew Carney dives into the cult of Babymetal. Not only does it make me insanely jealous of those who get to see Babymetal live this spring, but it makes me miss Japan. I need to go back!
Don’t forget to check out our one-man cover of Babymetal’s “Gimme Chocolate” by the one and only Samus Paulicelli of Decrepit Birth.
