Babymetal's North American tour kicks off tomorrow (May 8) and to celebrate the band have surprised fans with the new song "Distortion." They also released an accompanying music video, which features six shadowy figures walking through a dark and mysterious area. Watch the video below.
Speaking about the song in a statement, the band said "The new song Distortion explores the unrevealed Dark Side, The Apocrypha, the legend of seven metal spirits in which power is distorted through time and space. The music video of this song presents this unknown side and marks the important beginning of a new legend."
Last week, it was announced that Babymetal were launching their own record label, Babymetal Records. The deal is from a new partnership with 5B Artist Management And Records and Cooking Vinyl. They also recently released a new Blu-ray entitled "Legend S - Baptism XX" from their December 2 -3 2007 show in Hiroshima.
Babymetal's North American tour starts May 8 in Kansas City and wraps up May 20 with a set at Ohio's Rock on the Range. After that, they'll play various European festivals, including Nuremberg Rock Im Park, Innsbruck Music Hall in Austria, and Donington Download in the UK. Check out their tour dates here.
