Babymetal Confirmed for Sonisphere 2014
J-pop death metal viral sensation Babymetal were officially announced as the new performers of this year's Sonisphere festival.

The band will make their UK live debut in style, rocking out alongside such metal giants as Metallica and Iron Maiden.

"I am so honored that we are confirmed to play Sonisphere Festival UK," said 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. 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," the girl added.

As theĀ official release reads, over 1,000 fans demanded to see Babymetal at this year's event. The trio scored major popularity with their latest single "Gimme Chocolate," crossing 5 million YouTube views within three months. Check it out below.
