Babymetal Announce Departure Of Yuimetal And Release Surprise New Single Starlight

Friday, 19 October 2018 Written by Jon Stickler

Babymetal have confirmed the departure of Yuimetal.

Having not performed alongside Moametal and Su-Metal since December 2017, Yuimetal has left Babymetal permanently according to a statement from the band. 

"Thank you for continually supporting Babymetal. We would like to inform you of Babymetal's new beginning which will be effective starting this month’s Babymetal World Tour 2018 in Japan performances.

Yuimetal had expressed her desire to return performing with the group in the following months after last December’s performance due health concerns. During her absence, both Su-Metal and Moametal as well as the entire staff team had been preparing for her awaited return. However, Yuimetal came to a decision that she will not be performing at Babymetal World Tour 2018 in Japan and that she will no longer be a part of Babymetal. We thank her for all of her contributions and wish her all the best in her future endeavors.

This month’s Babymetal World Tour 2018 in Japan will mark the rebirth in which Su-Metal and Moametal form the core of Babymetal. 

We would like to express our deepest gratitude to the fans for the continued support and look forward in what's next for Babymetal."

The announcement follows the surprise release of new single, Starlight, which is available to stream below. Their graphic novel Apocrypha: The Legend of Babymetal is out on October 30 followed by a 'Distortion' 12" vinyl release on November 23.
