Mighty Japanese metal act BABYMETAL have been tapped as the unlikely — but very cool — special guests for Red Hot Chili Peppers’ upcoming UK tour. The three-piece, who released their Metal Resistance album this past spring, will open a string of dates in early December, including shows in London, Glasgow, and Manchester.
BABYMETAL recently joined forces with Judas Priest’s Rob Halford at the Alternative Press Music Awards.
