Japanese teenage girl pop metal band BABYMETAL spoke to NME backstage at this past weekend’s Reading and Leeds festivals. You can now watch the chat below.
Asked which band at the event they would like to teach their dance moves and why, BABYMETAL‘s Moametal said: “I would like to teach METALLICA our dance moves, just because we’ve learned so much from them about metal.”
Regarding what they learned from METALLICA, BABYMETAL‘s Su-metal said: “First of all, we learned about metal, but also by watching METALLICA performances, we have learned how to interact with the fans. We have learned all of that from just watching METALLICA.”
BABYMETAL has announced its return to the U.K. next year. The group will headline London SSE Arena Wembley on April 2, 2016.
