BABYMETAL--the Japan-based all-girl-fronted “Kawaii Metal” (mix of J-Pop Idol and Heavy Metal) group--has signed with RAL/Sony Music Entertainment for the U.S. release of their 2014 self-titled debut album. The album’s re-release will feature two bonus tracks (cover art and tracklisting below) and be available digitally on Tuesday, May 12 and physically on Tuesday, June 16.

Says Bill Richards, VP of Marketing at RAL/Sony Music Entertainment: “After witnessing the band’s sold-out New York show, we knew we wanted to be involved. The core metal fans and metal press seem to get BABYMETAL, which shows how the language of music transcends boundaries. They hit all the entertainment buttons and are really fun to watch.”

Since forming in 2010, BABYMETAL--the young trio of 17-year-old SU-METAL (Vocal, Dance) and 15-year-olds YUIMETAL (Scream, Dance) and MOAMETAL (Scream, Dance), backed by a four-piece band packing a heavy metal arsenal--have already achieved two major debut singles: "IJIME, DAME, ZETTA!" and "MEGISTUNE", both of which ranked in the Top 10 Oricon Chart in Japan. Their first studio album BABYMETAL also earned the #1 spot on Japan’s album chart and Billboard’s World Album Chart The official live music video for their debut album’s lead single “Gimme Chocolate!!” has garnered over 24.5 million views on YouTube. Now the band will re-release their chart-topping debut album via RAL/Sony Music Entertainment.

2014 saw BABYMETAL headline numerous sold-out shows from New York to London, including the 20,000 capacity Saitama Super Arena in Japan. They performed at major festivals in multiple countries such as the UK's massive Sonisphere in front of 65,000 festival-goers and supported LADY GAGA on her “Artrave: The Artpop Ball” tour. The band will gear up for an equally busy 2015 when they kick off their “THE DARK KNIGHTS BEGIN” World Tour 2015 on May 9 in Mexico City (full tour itinerary below). U.S. tour dates included a special one-off headlining show on May 14 at House Of Blues in Chicago, IL, followed by a festival appearance on May 16 at Rock On The Range in Columbus, OH.
