Ah yes, the Chosen Seven, the confusing concept of Episode VII that was played out in videos and onstage. Between their visuals, merchandise and marketing, the amount of creative planning that goes into the band is phenomenal. Kobametal wants to expand on last year’s comicbook project, Apocrypha: The Legend Of Babymetal.
Metal Galaxy will certainly propel them onwards. Having landed in the UK and gone straight to Sonisphere’s main stage, followed by landmark sets at the likes of Download and Wembley, they’re finally embarking on their first UK tour. Beyond those four dates, Kobametal wants to plant their red-and-black flag in even more locations. He has faith that Babymetal 2.0 are ready to go.
“The girls have really expanded their strengths and experienced so many different performances over the course of almost 10 years, that they’ve become stronger mentally and physically,” Kobametal says.
“I also feel that the way the girls view Babymetal has really resonated within them, and they’re now leading the way, discussing the future of Babymetal and how they want to envision and go through these next, coming tours.”
Babymetal feel like they’ve changed, too. “My height and my looks have probably changed. I think other people can tell I’ve matured. But I feel that my heart and way of thinking have changed over the past few years,” says Moametal. “Every performance I want to give it my best, and I never want to forget the fact that I’m very lucky to be doing what I’m doing, and to appreciate the people around me, supporting me.”
We ask them about their ambitions. Would they ever want to represent Japan at the Grammys? They laugh. “Until you mentioned the Grammys, I hadn’t really thought about it, to be quite honest,” says Su-metal. But that is definitely a dream, and it would be amazing if we were able to fulfil that.”
What other dreams do you have for Babymetal? “We want to be the future of metal music,” says Su-metal.
