Formed in 2010, the 3-girl unit BABYMETAL is based on the theme of “Kawaii Metal” (mixing the genres of J-Pop Idol and Heavy Metal). After releasing their music video for “DOKI DOKI☆MORNING” in 2011 to worldwide acclaim (and shock!), BABYMETAL performed at the Tokyo Idol Festival later the same year. In March, 2012, they released a collaboration single “II NE!” with Kiba of Akiba
, and released their single, “Headbangeeeeerrrrr!!!!!” in July, 2012. BABYMETAL made their first overseas performance at Anime Festival Asia Singapore in November, 2012.
In January 2013, BABYMETAL released their major-label debut single “Ijime, Dame, Zettai” (“No more bullying”) with Toy's Factory, and achieved the #6 spot on Oricon's singles chart. Later in 2013, they released their follow-up single “Megitsune” and began their “Death Match Tour 2013,” accompanied by a live metal band and performing at a number of live music festivals, including Metrock 2013, Rock in Japan 2013, and Anime Festival Indonesia 2013.
