BABYMETAL slays on Late Show with Stephen Colbert


Japanese metal phenoms BABYMETAL brought the Fox God’s power down on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert’s New York audience and millions of open-jawed television viewers Tuesday night with a live performance of their breakout hit “Gimme Chocolate!” from the self-titled 2014 album BABYMETAL.

The trio of Su-Metal, Moametal, and Yuimetal displayed their choreographed moves and kawaii-vocals with a full band on the stage of the Ed Sullivan Theater, supported by fans who waited for hours to get a spot within arm’s reach of the Japanese pop-metal ambassadors.

Noted Colbert, holding a vinyl copy of BABYMETAL’s album METAL RESISTANCE, “I’m not sure what I’m about to see, but I sure am excited.”


METAL RESISTANCE has been scoring high on international music charts since its April 1 release, and the group just kicked off their 2016 world tour at the SSE Arena, Wembley, and will perform several shows in the U.S. in May and July.
