Hiroshima release in August

News just broke that Babymetal will release a 16 track version of the now legendary Hiroshima gigs last December on DVD/Blu-ray on August 1 in Japan. This edition will come as a nice addition to all those that are not members of the Fan Club (they could order a bigger version some time ago) and although there is no word yet on this seeing international release, it will still be easy enough to buy on import. My take on this is that we could expect official release in Europe and elsewhere before Christmas. The demand should be there, no doubt.

Also, incredibly this release just had Babymetal present the second video inside a month (hot on the heels of “Distortion”) as they have picked “No Rain, No Rainbow” as the official promotional clip to go with this product (finally, some action on YouTube!). This version features a string ensemble and a grand piano and Su-metal is absolutely stunning. You can see her really feel the importance of the moment. Little did we know then that this would be the last Babymetal concerts for guitarist Mikio Fujioka and here he is in this very beautiful video. Highly emotional.

Also, I think they did well to pick this song. It was Su-metals homecoming and the celebration of her 20th birthday. And Yuimetal could not perform, so it was a difficult weekend for them all. Then we lost Mikio. In short, this release is Babymetal history in more ways than one.
