BABYMETAL release creepy MV for surprise single “Distortion”

BABYMETAL has heard the cries of their fans! After what seemed like an eternity, the girls finally dropped a brand new single just ahead of their 2018 world tour.

Titled Distortion, the song is available for digital download or streaming on all your favorite services including iTunes, Apple Music, and Spotify.   

Distortions MV takes place in a destroyed city, almost post apocalyptic looking. Various demonic looking individuals gather in the destroyed city to take on what seems to be a monster made out of rocks.

The unlikely superheros eventually defeat the beast, and the MV closes with the group looking at the destroyed city landscape while a glowing black object hangs above it.
