Su-Metal: "I am so honored that we are confirmed to play Sonisphere Festival UK"
Japanese viral phenomenon BABYMETAL will make their debut appearance in the United Kingdom at Sonisphere this summer. Since uploading the video of their latest single ‘Gimme Chocolate’ less than two months ago it has received more than 5 million views. The music press was forced to stand up and take notice, with everyone from Kerrang! and Metal Hammer to the Guardian and USA Today covering the teenage trio’s catchy blend of iconic pop and heavy metal.
Su-Metal: “I am so honored that we are confirmed to play Sonisphere Festival UK,” declares Su-Metal. “There are so many different types of artists playing this festival but I hope to deliver a one and only, unique style metal – BABYMETAL – even to those who will see us for the very first time. This will be our very first time in the UK, which makes us nervous, yet excited just imagining what type of people will come and see us, what sort of show it will end up being, and whether the audience will enjoy our show. We’ll hopefully get to see Metallica-san’s performance again after witnessing them at Summer Sonic festival in Japan which we are very excited about.”
Thanks to those Sonisphere fans have been holding out for just such an announcement, with this Babymetal For Sonisphere UK 2014 Facebook page attracting more than 1,000 fans who as they say: “We want BABYMETAL for Sonisphere festival UK 2014 and we WANT IT NOW!
THEY GOT IT…
So get ready for the BABYMETAL set in the Bohemia tent on the Sunday. They promise an all-singing, all-dancing show the UK has never seen the like of before!
