BABYMETAL Explain Why They Haven’t Officially Replaced Yuimetal

After YUIMETAL left BABYMETAL, the band chose to move forward without an official replacement, instead opting to use back-up dancers, which they refer to as the Avengers. SU-METAL recently discussed this decision with Kerrang!, saying it would be hard to replace someone like YUIMETAL.

SU-METAL said the following:

“YUIMETAL has been someone very special to us. So obviously it’s been very difficult, but we want to fully support what she wants to pursue.”

“We wanted to continue BABYMETAL and continue the tradition. Also there’s just no-one like YUIMETAL, so it’s not an easy replacement. And that’s why we decided – SU-METAL and MOAMETAL – to form the core of BABYMETAL.”

The band’s producer KOBAMETAL added:

“Obviously YUIMETAL’s departure was something that they’d never experienced before. It was a difficult moment for BABYMETAL, but it was more that SU-METAL and MOAMETAL had their strong desire to continue [the band]. They wanted to become the core of the group. I think it was a time where BABYMETAL continued to evolve.”

As previously reported, BABYMETAL’s new album “Metal Galaxy” will be released on October 11.
