BABYMETAL have previously expressed interest in collaborating with Bring Me The Horizon after performing alongside the group at Glastonbury Festival. 

“We love Bring Me The Horizon and I respect the band and their music,” Moametal says. “We want to collaborate with Bring Me The Horizon.”

Hopefully, this partnership turns into some kind of music collab as well. 

BABYMETAL are gearing up to drop their third LP, METAL GALAXY, slated to be released Oct. 11 via BABYMETAL RECORDS and Cooking Vinyl.

Fans got their first taste of the album with the single, “Elevator Girl.”

“‘Elevator Girl’ started off as being relatively young and over the past years we’ve become adults and this song expresses that,” Su-Metal says. “There’s a shift and a change in how we’ve matured to becoming adults. ‘Elevator Girl’ represents our maturity.

For the next album, we’re facing a lot of new challenges. ‘Elevator Girl’ represents me becoming an adult and the new metal that we have created. Our album is like a toybox with a different mixture of songs in there. ‘Elevator Girl’ is just one of those songs in the mix.”

You can listen to that below.

CD and vinyl pre-orders for METAL GALAXY can be found here.
