Everything you need to know about BABYMETAL’s FOX DAY

BABYMETAL have confirmed the name of their new album will be Metal Resistance.

So. Very. Metal.

The ‘metal dance unit’ as they’re described in their official press releases (which we love, by the way) are gearing up for the release of Metal Resistance on 1 April.  To celebrate, BABYMETAL will then headline London’s The SSE Arena, Wembley, on Saturday 2 April.

BABYMETAL have also declared 1 April to be ‘FOX DAY’ in honour of the album release.
