Babymetal fans you can breathe now, Yuimetal remains with the group. A few days ago, fans noticed her absence on their current US trek as people have taken to Twitter forming a #WheresYuimetal movement. Alternative Press reached out to their management to find answers and a spokesperson from 5B Management has confirmed she’s still with the group but, sitting out for this tour.
The spokesperson stated:
“Yuimetal remains a member of the band, but she is not on this current U.S. tour. There is a new narrative for the future of the band which is currently evolving. The storyline has changed. This was the basis of the ‘Metal Resistance Episode 7: The Revelation’ video.”
Similar to what we noticed with the seven cloaked members, the representative mentioned the Jpop-metal act are about to embark on a new era that includes introducing new characters.
“The who, when, where, and how of The Chosen Seven will be presented as the concept unfolds.”
Hopefully, we will know what’s happening in the Babymetal camp once they wrap up their tour.
