Babymetal To Make UK Debut At Sonisphere In July 2014

One of the best things about being in 2014 is that when something happens which is truly unique, no matter where in the world it happens, everyone knows out about it.
 
The latest musical phenomenon to go viral is Japan's BABYMETAL, and Team Sonisphere snapped them up to join this year's line up. Since uploading latest single "Gimme Chocolate!!" less than two months ago, anyone with even a passing interest in music will be aware of the teenage trio's blend of Icon Pop and Heavy Metal. Generating over 5 million views, seemingly out of nowhere, the music press was forced to stand up and take notice, with premier rock publications like Kerrang! and Metal Hammer featuring the band, alongside mainstream outlets such as The Guardian and USA Today.
 
Innovators will always divide opinion, and announcing that BABYMETAL's debut performance in the UK will be on a bill that also boasts IRON MAIDEN, METALLICA, ALICE IN CHAINS and MASTODON will no doubt cause some anguished cries from the purists, but one thing is certain - anyone lucky enough to squeeze into the BOHEMIA tent on SONISPHERE'S SUNDAY will be rewarded with an all singing, all dancing show the likes of which the UK has never seen before.
 
"I am so honored that we are confirmed to play Sonisphere Festival UK." Declares SU-METAL. "There are so many different types of artists playing this festival but I hope to deliver a one and only, unique style metal - BABYMETAL - even to those who will see us for the very first time.

This will be our very first time in the UK, which makes us nervous yet excited just imagining what type of people will come and see us, what sort of show it will end up being, and whether the audience will enjoy our show."
 
She continues, "We'll hopefully get to see Metallica-san's performance again after witnessing them at Summer Sonic festival in Japan which we are very excited about. Put your KITSUNE sing up!! See you!!"
