Well, I knew this day would come but I didn’t think it would be this soon. NECRONOMIDOL has announced a couple of graduations. These will probably be tough for some of you to take. Just remember, this happens in idol all the time.
Where is Yui? That was a question folks in the BABYMETAL fandom had been asking for quite some time. Well, now there is an answer. I will let the official announcement speak for itself.
Important Announcement from BABYMETAL
Posted : 2018.10.19
Thank you for continually supporting BABYMETAL. We would like to inform you of BABYMETAL’s new beginning which will be effective starting this month’s BABYMETAL WORLD TOUR 2018 in JAPAN performances.
YUIMETAL had expressed her desire to return performing with the group in the following months after last December’s performance due health concerns. During her absence, both SU-METAL and MOAMETAL as well as the entire staff team had been preparing for her awaited return. However, YUIMETAL came to a decision that she will not be performing at BABYMETAL WORLD TOUR 2018 in JAPAN and that she will no longer be a part of BABYMETAL. We thank her for all of her contributions and wish her all the best in her future endeavors.
This month’s BABYMETAL WORLD TOUR 2018 in JAPAN will mark the rebirth in which SU-METAL and MOAMETAL form the core of BABYMETAL.
We would like to express our deepest gratitude to the fans for the continued support and look forward in what’s next for BABYMETAL.
Message to fans
There was also a message from YUIMETAL
To all the fans,
My continued absence has been a while, and I’m sorry for causing trouble for many people. Though I’ve reconsidered many times over, I have come to the decision that I am resigning from Babymetal at this time.
I’m truly sorry that my decision will cause trouble for the members and all of those who’ve been supporting Babymetal. Also, I’m sorry for causing sadness for all the fans who’ve been supporting Babymetal. Although I also had the strong desire to stand on stage once again, my physical condition is not perfect even now. I also have the feeling to want to go towards my dream that I have had from before, as Mizuno Yui, which is why I made a decision like this.
I am grateful about receiving precious experiences as Babymetal.
I felt blessed everyday. It was a fun and happy time with the live shows where everyone smiled and became one.
I will work hard with great effort to be able to meet with everyone again someday as Mizuno Yui.
I truly thank you for the past 8 years.
– Mizuno Yui.
In other news, BABYMETAL did release and MV for the song Starlight earlier. Maybe that will take some of the sting out of it.

It is always exciting to see new groups forming, you are always trying to figure out what they are going to turn out like. This new group is no exception. Lets have a quick peek at Dim Black.
Praise to the Great Old Ones for bestowing upon a mere mortal this chance to let the dulcet tones of the great NECRONOMIDOL grace my eardrums. Let me have the strength to finish this impression before the shadowed hordes of the deep come for me.
This came out earlier this morning but I have found that it is OK to wait for great things. I know some of you might have wanted an MV for one of the new songs, but this song is so great and the video is really, really well shot. It even has a story and maybe if you really pay attention you can find some hidden stuff in there. Here you go.
Now that you have watched that I bet you want more. Order the new release here:
OK, details on showtimes for NECRONOMIDOL’s appearance at the H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival are now available. I am really excited about this and will be there all three days, and there will be no shortage of things to do, both NECRONOMIDOL and H.P. Lovecraft related. I already wrote a bit about this event. The group will be performing 3 times during their visit, make sure to fully go through all the information below. There are still more details to come.
The time comes in the life of a website where there are some changes that need to be made. I do not want to make these changes but real life dictates that I must. I am finding myself with less and less time to devote to this site and I feel that trying to keep up with the news for all the idols that you all like to read about is becoming something that I cannot do. I am having to devote more time to actual life so I will have to cut back on the news for a while. I will still report on groups that I have an extremely high interest in, NECRONOMIDOL, WACK affiliated groups, some of the smaller indie idols.
Other than that I have been working on more entries in the discography section. Yeah, I have one of those, and it is already pretty good. It will be quite some time before that is finished and I will always be adding to it as time permits.
The website will not be disappearing or anything like that, just a little less “daily” type content. I will publish updates as I finish sections of the discographies and possibly some longer form stuff that is in various stages of completion.
Thank you all for the support and continued patronage.
Oh, I will also still be on the podcast, you can’t get rid of me on that thing.
