Babymetal’s “Babies Breath” album has sold over 200,000 copies in the UK so far, beating out the debut single “Au Revoir” by Drake.
The new album, Babymetal: Babymetal Alive, is the band’s fifth studio album and its first since “Babymetal” was officially formed in 2005.
The group has already topped the UK singles charts and sold over 100,000 albums worldwide.
Babymetal will tour the UK on August 22 and 23.
They will play two sold-out shows in London and Manchester, and will also headline the Royal Albert Hall.
BabyMetal, who have been a British band since 2005, were formed in Tokyo, Japan, and the group’s name derives from the Japanese word for “child”.
