New PV Alert: BABYMETAL – Distortion

Coming at us like a surprise attack, BABYMETAL pops us in the jaw with their latest digital release, “Distortion”. BABYMETAL play things cool and mysteriou with this new promotional video. Much of the imagery is shrouded in fog with faces obscured by camera angles and masks. One thing is sure: there is an epic, Biblical proportion battle going down. It’s a battle that can only be won with fireballs and meteor strikes. The dark eye hovers over the ruined cities persists to the end of the PV, perhaps telling us that BABYMETAL still have unfinished business to attend. The group play some jagged rhythms on the verses with their normal heaviness. The chorus melodies give a fight song melody, which is a nice reprieve from the aggressive verses. “Distortion” is available as a digital single starting May 8, 2018.

BABYMETAL are on tour now and will hit select cities in the US throughout May.
