Metal Resistance is available now to pre-order via their official webstore as a standalone CD and special pre-order bundles.

2015 was a breakout year for BABYMETAL, the young trio of 17-year-old SU-METAL (Vocal, Dance) and 16-year-olds YUIMETAL (Scream, Dance) and MOAMETAL (Scream, Dance), backed by a four-piece band packing a heavy metal arsenal: they re-released their 2014 chart topping self-titled debut album (released digitally 5/12/15 and physically on 6/16/15 via RAL/Sony Music Entertainment), were the most sought-after band at Rock On The Range (U.S.'s premiere rock festival) and completed sold-out dates at Chicago's House of Blues and New York City's Hammerstein Ballroom (part of their 2015 world tour); they've won several awards including the "Breakthrough Act" award at the 2015 Metal Hammer Golden Gods, the "Spirit of Independence" award at the 2015 Relentless Kerrang! Awards, MTV Europe's "Wildcard Best Japanese Act" and several LOUDWIRE Awards. In addition, they were awarded the "Discovery Prize" at GQ Japan's "Men of the Year 2015" Awards and the "Women of the Year" Award at VOGUE Japan's "Women of the Year 2015" Awards. In July, 2015, they became the first Japanese artist to appear on the cover of METAL HAMMER.

Since forming in 2010, BABYMETAL 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 42 million views on YouTube. 2014 saw BABYMETAL headline numerous sold-out shows from New York to London, including the 20,000 capacity Saitama Super Arena in Japan.
