However, their management decided that Babymetal would not dissolve and would continue their activities as a band. The group released its next single, titled "Megitsune" (メギツネ) on June 19. Babymetal attended SUMMER SONIC 2013 which was held in Tokyo and Osaka on August 10 and 11, 2013. It was their second time performing at the festival; in 2012, they became the youngest artists ever (with the average age of 12) to perform there. Later, in October 2013, Babymetal became also the youngest artists ever to perform at the LOUD PARK heavy metal music festival.
In November 2013, Babymetal released a promo video for the Japanese premiere of Metallica's movie, Through the Never. The group announced a two-day live concert at Budokan, scheduled for March 1 and 2, 2014, and a debut album, released February 26, 2014. The album contains 13 tracks and is also available in a limited edition version containing a bonus DVD with music videos and live footage. Babymetal has been anounced to make their debut appearance in the United Kingdom at the Sonisphere Festival 2014, scheduled to perform their set in the Bohemia tent on July 6, 2014. Their new song : Road of Resistance was featuring Dragonforce Herman Li and Sam Totman as a guitar playing. This song is available in Digital version (Itunes) . According to Kei Kobayashi (aka Kobametal, the band's producer), Babymetal's name came to him by revelation (as a "divine message"). Babymetal (ベビーメタル, "bebiimetaru") is a play on the Japanese pronunciation of "heavy metal" (ヘヴィメタル, "heaviimetaru").
"Baby" may indicate cuteness and "metal" intensity. He has also come to like interpreting it as "newborn metal." In an interview for RazorTV while in Singapore in late 2013, the band members also used the latter interpretation. They stated their brand of metal was a newborn genre, and that was what "baby" in Babymetal stood for.
