Babymetal Announce U.S. Album and World Tour

Babymetal have inked a deal with RAL/Sony Music who will be releasing the group's self-titled debut in the U.S. and the all-girl Japanese pop-metal group will be kicking off a world tour next month.

The album was originally released in other markets in 2014. The new U.S. version will include two bonus tracks and it will be released digitally on May 12 and physically on June 16th.

RAL/Sony Music VP of Marketing Bill Richards had this to say, "After witnessing the band's sold-out New York show, we knew we wanted to be involved. The core metal fans and metal press seem to get Babymetal, which shows how the language of music transcends boundaries. They hit all the entertainment buttons and are really fun to watch."

Babymetal's The Dark Knights Begin World Tour will feature shows in various markets across the globe including the U.S., Japan, Mexico, Canada, Germany, France, Italy, Austria, Switzerland and their native Japan.
