It’s been reported Slash (from Guns N Roses fame) said he'd tour with BabyMetal.
He praised the group during an interview while touring in Japan and said that they were “the most exciting thing that I’d seen recently”.
But he's certainly not the first to do so.
BabyMetal have attracted huge amounts of attention on an international stage over the last few years. They toured with Lady Gaga, they’ve scored spots on Billboard’s 2014 World Artists and the top spot on Loudwire’s Best New Artist for 2014.
This isn’t even the first time a Western rock artist has sung their praises, Marty Friedman (from Megadeth) revealed he’s a fan of them during a Rolling Stone interview. As a side note, Friedman has also appeared on some Momoiro Clover Z tracks as well!
Their “The Dark Knights Begin” tour begins internationally in May.
Unfortunately none of their dates include Australia.
But with J-Rockers ONE OK ROCK, Crossfaith and Coldrain coming to Soundwave this year, it’s only a matter of time before they come to Australia, right? RIGHT?!
