Babymetal share single ft Rage Against The Machine's Tom Morello


Japanese metal band Babymetal has released their latest single, "METAL!!," featuring the collaboration of influential guitarist and activist, Tom Morello from Rage Against The Machine. Morello has expressed his admiration for Babymetal's music, stating that he was excited to work with them after hearing the demo of "METAL!!."

This single is the band's first release with their current lineup, including the addition of Momometal earlier this year.

Morello said:

“I am a big fan of BABYMETAL, a band that is both power rocking and constantly surprising with dizzying musical twists and turns." 

"I’ve been trying to work with them for some time and when they sent me the demo of ‘METALI!!’ I knew I could rock that shit like crazy!”
