Commenting on BABYMETAL's appearance, Su-Metal exclaimed, “I am extremely thrilled that BABYMETAL is nominated among a great list of other bands for Best International Band. I am above ecstatic seeing how we have been able to connect with our fans from across the globe through our music, surpassing language barriers and just making it to far places all over the world on our tours. I just hope that we, Babymetal, will be able to continue to bring our music to more people worldwide, here on out.”
“We are super excited to be part of the 3rd annual APMAs,” added Papa Roach frontman Jacoby Shaddix, continuing, “The lineup this year is sick, plus, the magazine has been a huge part of keeping the American punk, rock and metal scene alive all these years. Plus, we got some tricks up our sleeves for this one. It’s gonna be dope.”
