BABYMETAL Appear To Have Parted Ways With A Core Member


BABYMETAL are still down one of their core trio with Yui “Yuimetal” Mizuno once again absent from the band’s live shows. Mizuno first sat out some shows in December with the band citing her health at the time as the reason for the missed performances.

However, the group played their first show since last night, May 08th, at the Uptown Theater in Kansas City, MO with Mizuno nowhere to be found. Thus far the band have yet to publicly address the situation. Seemingly making up for the absence, the band have since added two backup dancers to their live show.

In addition to giving their new single “Distortion” a live debut at the show, the band also performed two new songs. Fan-filmed footage of that can be found below. Current BABYMETAL dates include:
