Babymetal surprised fans this morning with a brand new single to remind folks they are about to kick off a world tour.

The band unveiled an upbeat, dancy new track called "Distortion" and a music video to go along with it. Unless I missed a quick cut, it doesn't seem like the three members of Babymetal appear in the new music video:

Perhaps this goes with the new storyline the band teased on socials last week:

The last frame of the music video does indeed have seven individuals, take a look if you missed it:

Will The Chosen Seven be making an appearance at the band's upcoming tour dates?

The band posted this message along with the video: "We delivered our new song "Distortion" as a surprise digital single just before the kick off of our WORLD TOUR 2018."

The official release date of the single is tomorrow, May 8th. You can download "Distortion" on iTunes or stream on Spotify or Apple Music.
